T-ara’s Jiyeon and Jung Joon Young were swept up in dating rumors on April 19, and both sides quickly responded.
Jiyeon’s agency MBK Entertainment clarified, “We confirmed with Jiyeon and she is not dating Jung Joon Young. She recently went on a trip overseas with 10 friends including Jung Joon Young. The only celebrities in that group were the two of them. Their group of friends often hung out after returning from the trip as well. They are close acquaintances, not a couple.”
Jung Joon Young’s agency C9 Entertainment also issued a similar statement, saying, “Jung Joon Young and Jiyeon are not dating. The rumors are false.”
