T-ara’s Hyomin broke up with footballer Hwang Ui Jo.
On Tuesday, Hyomin’s side told media outlets, “This is a belated statement regarding the dating rumors that sparked in January. At the time, it’s true that Hyomin was seeing Hwang Ui Jo with good feelings. However, due to the pressure of the situation, the two naturally drifted apart. And they have now decided to remain friends who cheer each other on.”
Earlier in January, Dispatch reported that Hyomin and Hwang Ui Jo were dating. Along with the news, the outlet released the photos of the two on a date in Switzerland. However, at the time, neither of them confirmed or denied the rumors.
Hyomin’s side further added, “Back in January, neither Hyomin nor Hwang Eui Jo had management agencies and had no one to perform official duties. We ask for your understanding that they were unable to respond quickly to the many inquiries.”
