on the late evening of August 2, HyunA and E’Dawn go to interview with Yeonhap News, where they officially admitted to their relationship. First, the two revealed, “We know that we will constantly be tagged onto each other’s names from now on, but still, we thought that it would be hard to look straight into the eyes of our fans once we got on stage. That’s why we wanted to be honest at least to our fans who love and watch over us, and then go in front of them with our confidence and joy on stage.” HyunA continued, “I got to know E’Dawn when he was a trainee and we performed on stage together, and then we started dating in May of 2016.” Back in 2015, E’Dawn performed a stage of HyunA’s “Roll Deep” instead of BTOB’s Ilhoon. “Our relationship continued as we made music together. We were very careful… Even though he’s not in the credits, there are many portions in my solo album where E’Dawn helped me with the details,” HyunA continued. HyunA stressed that the reason she decided to go public with her relationship for the first time since her debut, was to be as honest as possible to those who “appreciate our decision”. E’Dawn also added, “It may not be the most realistic, but I thought that admitting would lead to true happiness. I was also worried that it would affect my members, so I told them first. I am very sorry to my fans, but I will repay you with hard work and promotions.” Congratulations, HyunA & E’Dawn!
