Fans of 'We Got Married's Yura - Hong Jong Hyun couple were especially shocked to hear about dating rumors between the well-known models. According to a report by 'Women's Sense' on January 22, Hong Jong Hyun and Nana were spotted and photographed on a date. The two rumored lovers allegedly met through the OnStyle program 'Style Log' and even spent last Christmas together at an amusement park in Incheon.
Nana is reportedly quite open with her relationship with Hong Jong Hyun, calling him "Jjong" in front of broadcast staff. There has yet to be a denial from either stars' agencies, but Hong Jong Hyun's label Weedmay has made an official statement.
Weedmay stated, "Hong Jong Hyun and his managers are all abroad due to a photo shoot. Currently, we're unable to reach them, so we're unable to figure out what's happening in relation to the dating rumors. We will reveal our stance when they arrive tomorrow."
What do you think of the rumors?
[Update] Pledis Entertainment has come out to deny the reports. A rep stated, "It's true that Nana and Hong Jong Hyun are close, but they're not dating. The dating rumors are false."
[Update] Variety program MBC's 'We Got Married' also stepped up to deny that they were dating. Producer Sun Hae Yoon said, "We heard the relevant rumor a few months ago, so we had already asked him for confirmation. Hong Jong Hyun himself had said, 'I'm openly friends with Nana.' After a specific incident, 'We Got Married' received written oaths from the participants that they would not go contrary to their sincerity. This goes for Hong Jong Hyun."
[Update] Hong Jong Hyun's agency also denied the dating rumors, stating, "First off, we would like to ask for your understanding for taking time to confirm with [Hong Jong Hyun]. After confirming with [Hong Jong Hyun], Hong Jong Hyun and Nana just have a close oppa-dongseng relationship. They are not in a relationship as previously reported. Since they were both models, they share a lot of common interests so it's true that they became close. But the reports of them dating are false, and we ask that the reports may cease. We are thankful for the great interest in Hong Jong Hyun, and we will work harder to show a good image."
