According to Dispatch, the pair began dating 6 months ago. They have admired each other for quite some time and after they got to know each other, the admiration turned into a closer relationship. Junsu is said to have approached Hani first as he was attracted to her. Their friends revealed that the 29-year-old JYJ member fell in love with her because of her inner and outer beauty.


He was also attracted to the 24-year-old EXID member because she is renowned for being one of the nicest girls in the idol industry. The couple’s friends said that both idols are very different in personality as Hani is a bit boyish and rowdy while Junsu is more sensitive and delicate.

Dispatch also released some exclusive photos from the pair’s alleged date that took place at Han River in December 2015. They were photographed together in Junsu’s Aston Martin 007 with Junsu sitting in the driver’s seat and Hani in the passenger seat.

The pair was also spotted dating back in October and November. They would frequently meet on Sunday evenings as Hani was busy with EXID’s “Hot Pink” comeback promotions. They would also date at Junsu’s home and his manager, who lives temporarily with him, would occasionally pick her up. The two have reportedly spent Christmas Eve together, with Hani giving Junsu a Christmas present.

Check out the exclusive photos which were taken on 3 separate dates (27th November, 23rd and 24th December) in the gallery below:

Regarding the report, Junsu’s agency C-JeS Entertainment confirmed it by stating:

This is the official statement on Junsu and EXID Hani’s dating news. The two first encouraged and supported each other in their activities as a sunbae and hoobae as artists. It’s true that recently, they have begun a relationship and are meeting well.

But as the 2 are artistes who are receiving a lot of love, we ask for warm regards. As dating is a personal matter we cannot reveal anymore and ask for your understanding,” the rep added.


Congratulations to the new couple!
