Netizens ′Confirm′ Sohee and Seulong Relationship
News about a relationship that blossomed between Wonder Girls’ Sohee and 2AM’s Lim Seulong broke out on January 25, stating that Sohee and Lim Seulong are in a relationship and that they had enjoyed a date together on Christmas, but the couple’s agencies are treading carefully, saying they’re trying to confirm the facts.
An official from JYP Entertainment stated in a phone conversation with enews, “We’re currently trying to get a confirmation from them on whether this is true. We’ll be coming out with an official statement after checking the facts.”
An official from Seulong’s agency Big Hit Entertainment also said, “Lim Seulong is currently in Japan for 2AM’s Japan tour concerts. We’ll have to talk with him to confirm whether it’s true. Because he went through a rehearsal yesterday, we can’t reach him. We’ll release an official statement after checking the facts.”
Netizens are mostly ascertaining by themselves that the news is true, however, as apparently a post on the issue was left on a forum a long time before the news broke out.
The post was left on the forum of a portal site on April 2011.
The writer stated in the post, ‘I went to fix my car yesterday and I saw Sohee and Seulong holding hands. Are they really going out with each other?’ The post was treated like a rumor at the time, but now it’s rising as proof of the relationship.
Sohee debuted in 2007 as a member of the group Wonder Girls, and released big hits such as Tell Me, So Hot and Nobody. Recently the group briefly returned to Korea with Be My Baby in the midst of its American ventures to prove it still stood strong as a popular girl group.
Lim Seulong is a member of the group 2AM, which made its debut in 2008, and became a big star with singles This Song and Even If I Die, I Can’t Send You. The group is currently promoting in Japan.
