Hot new K-Pop couple alert!
Sports Dong A, a South Korean media outlet, reported that Wonder Girls’ (원더걸스) Park Ye-Eun (박예은) and 2AM’s Jeong Jinwoon (정진운) have been dating since 2014! According to an insider, the couple bonded over their similar taste in music.
Before Jinwoon left JYP Entertainment in 2015, the duo had a close sunbae-hoobae (senior-junior) relationship. Another industry source revealed that the 2 gave each other musical instruments as gifts, adding that Ye-Eun would record the demo version of the songs she composed while Jinwoon plays the guitar.
JYP has also released a statement to confirm the dating news. In their statement, they said:
“Hello. This is JYP Entertainment.
Yenny (Ye-Eun) and Jinwoon have built up a special relationship by being under the same company and by sharing their musical interests. The 2, who shared a common denominator called music, went from friends to lovers toward the beginning of 2014, and continue to maintain their relationship even after Jinwoon signed on with Mystic Entertainment (Jinwoon’s current label).
Even now, they hold back no advice or encouragement toward each other’s music, and remain a beautiful musician couple. Please watch over Yenny and Jinwoon’s relationship fondly and cheer them on.”
Jeong Jinwoon recently released his latest maxi single with the title track, “Will”, featuring prominent rapper Tiger JK while Ye-Eun (also known as HA:TFELT) has been active in promoting Wonder Girls’ latest summer comeback mini-album, “Why So Lonely”.
Congratulations to the musical couple <3
