Breaking news, K-Pop fans: the Wonder Girls' Sohee and 2AM's Seulong are dating!
As artists in the same company - JYP – the two idols had a chance to become close to each other, and for Sohee, who has a naturally shy personality, Seulong was one of the few friends she had, said an anonymous source to Dispatch, a Korean news outlet.
"Sohee is such a careful character," said the anonymous person, who knew both members well. "Although she's been a celebrity for a while, she can count the number of friends on one hand. She's not the kind of person to easily reveal her feelings to anyone."
From the pictures taken by Dispatch, the two idols can be seen together giving off a romantic vibe. The couple progressed greatly in their relationship especially after Sohee returned from her American activities, Dispatch said.
Seulong was a 'soulmate' for Sohee, according to the source. "Although she's part of the world's best girl group, she's still a young teenager," the source revealed. "She went through a lot in the States. Seulong was Sohee's only friend and oppa with whom she could freely talk about her problems."
Their meetings were coordinated in secrecy, and even their other close parties did not know about their clandestine meetings. Out of the four dates that Dispatch encountered, they were all held late at night and took place in their car.
On one date, held on January 8th when Sohee returned from Taiwan, Dispatch captured the pair snacking on rice noodles and exchanging presents.
They also met during Christmas, where they also exchanged presents and went on a Gangnam date in Seulong's car.
A representative for JYP took a cautious stance, acknowledging that Seulong was one of Sohee's few close friends, but refused to discuss the matter further. "The company does not know about their artists' own private lives. Especially for emotional problems, we do not get involved. It will be hard to confirm anything about any feelings other than just friends."
