Yesterday, it was reported by TV Report that Triple H group members HyunA and E’Dawn of Pentagon were in a relationship for months now.
On August 2, news outlet TV Report said that the two have been dating for several months. E’Dawn’s birthday is June 1, and HyunA’s birthday is June 6, and according to the report, they invited friends and celebrated their birthday together with a party on June 4.
However, Cube Entertainment released a statement denying a relationship.
Cube Entertainment commented, “HyunA and E’Dawn are not dating. This is groundless [news].”
Today though, HyunA and E’Dawn decided to go public that they’ve been dating not for a few months but for a couple years. The reason is that they want to be honest with fans, though really it seems like Dispatch or somebody was about to drop pictures.
Yonhap News reported that HyunA and E’Dawn had personally shared that they had been dating for two years. According to the source, the two wanted to publicly acknowledge their relationship so that they could confidently stand in front of their fans. HyunA and E’Dawn stated the reason for acknowledging their relationship, saying, “While we knew that [dating publicly] would cause us to be linked in some way, both of us felt that it would be hard to meet our fans’ eyes [while performing] on stage. We wanted to honestly tell our fans and show ourselves confidently having fun performing.” HyunA started dating E’Dawn back in 2016 in May. She showed her affection for him, saying “While he was not officially credited, E’Dawn really helped a lot with my album.”
Anyway, honestly good for them. They seem to get on well. Hopefully any backlash is not too severe.
Mostly though, I just want to take the time to laugh at everybody who overreacted to out-of-context gifs of HyunA and E’Dawn, reaching to paint it as her sexually harassing him.
