“I worry that Hyeri might get hurt by this unexpected situation,” An said in news reports. An, owner of agency TN Entertainment, was a member of former super star idol group H.O.T. in the ‘90s.

Hyeri graduated from Seoul Arts High School in February and entered Konkuk University this March. Girl’s Day has gained popularity through their newly released album “Expect.”

“Tony and Hyeri have been together since March,” Hyeri’s agency DreamTea Entertainment said. Both agencies kept silent on details about how the relationship started, saying that more information would be announced later.
