SEOUL, June 28 (Yonhap) — Sojin, a member of K-pop group Girl’s Day, and singer-songwriter Eddy Kim admitted to being in romantic relationship on Wednesday.
“Sojin and Eddy Kim have just begun dating with good feelings toward each other,” the two stars’ agencies, DreamT Entertainment and Mystic Entertainment, said in a joint press release.
The announcement followed a report from an Internet-based newspaper that Sojin, 31, and Kim, 27, grew close while filming the cable TV channel CGV’s reality show “I’m Director Too: Youth Movie” last August and began dating two months ago.
The two initially denied the dating rumors, saying they are just close friends.
“We were very cautious about the abrupt report and denied it, but later decided to admit to the relationship after discussions,” the release said.
Debuting as a member of Girl’s Day in 2010, Sojin concurrently works as an actress. Eddy Kim, whose Korean name is Kim Jung-hwan, gained fame after appearing on Mnet’s “Superstar K4.” He now works as a singer-songwriter and guitarist after signing a management contract with Mystic Entertainment founded by famous singer-songwriter Yoon Jong-shin.
