Fans believe B2ST’s Junhyung previously hinted at relationship with KARA’s Hara

Since the reveal of the newest celebrity relationship to rock the K-pop world, fans have been busy dealing with both heartbreak and excitement for Junhyung and Hara
Netizens though are now speculating that Junhyung had indirectly hinted at being in a relationship in previous interviews, as well as through his Twitter.
In particular, netizens have been focusing on B2ST’s May 28th appearance on KBS’s ‘Entertainment Weekly‘ for a guerilla date. When the group was asked, “Which member do you think will be the first to reveal a relationship to the public?”, the members unanimously chose Junhyung.
Though nobody thought much of it at the time, netizens are now saying that they must have been hinting at his relationship with Hara.
In response, Junhyung had replied, “If I get a girlfriend later on, I would love to let the public know about it.” The reporter joked, “Why don’t you tell us about it today?”, to which Junhyung laughed and said, “Not today“, a clever statement that netizens now believe was a foreshadowing confession.
In addition, fans are also taking note of Junhyung’s previous tweets.
On April 29th, Junhyung had posted, “I found strength through just one phone call” and “Even though people say that pretty girls usually don’t look as great from the back, you’re beautiful from every angle.”
F.T. Island’s Hongki, known to be good friends with Junhyung, commented on these tweets in a joking manner, and claimed himself to be the subject of Junhyung’s affectionate posts.

Also being noted is a recent radio interview during which Junhyung described his ideal woman with lyrics he had written for B2ST’s song, “I Like You the Best” – “a thin girl, kind of short with a small face and soft hair“, all characteristics that Goo Hara is widely known to possess.
Though these hints seem quite obvious in hindsight, fans didn’t have much else to work with until the official confirmation was recently made.
Looks like we gotta pay closer attention for more of these sneaky idol relationship hints in future!

JunHyung and Goo Hara are Confirmed to be in a Relationship

KARA’s Hara and Junhyung have been revealed to be dating.
On June 28th, Cube Entertainment announced, “They had a senior/ junior relationship until they began dating. They’ve been dating for about a month now. When Hara was going through some difficult times, Junhyung consoled her. Because of their busy schedules, they’ve only been able to go out to eat and other dating activities three times so far.”
DSP Media also announced, “They do have good feelings towards one another, but they’re still getting to know each other. It’s only been a month so far. Please watch over them for a bit more.”
An associate of the two revealed, “The KARA and B2ST members are all close to one another because they’ve been promoting around the same time. They depend on and look to each other for consolation. Ahead of their Japanese comeback, their relationship has gotten a lot deeper through support meetings.”
The two were caught confidently dating on the early morning of June 9th, the day Junhyung returned from B2ST’s Japanese concert. After drinking coffee at a take out cafe in Kangnam, the two drove around the area before parking near Junhyung’s home. For an hour, the two walked around the neighborhood and around the park before settling at the ‘Sky Park’ in Sangam-dong.
Seeing the two hold hands side by side was definitely a heartwarming sight for reporters on the scene. The two apparently used every spare moment in their schedules, as they met up again on the early morning of June 13th to walk around the back alleys of Hongdae.
What’s amazing is that they didn’t hide who they were at all. In the car, Hara would roll down the windows and stick her head out to observe the night view.
An associate of Hara’s explained, “Innocence is Hara’s charm. She may have begun promoting early, but she’s not affected by that at all and still manages to preserve her innocence. Yong Junhyung probably fell in love with her pure charm.”

Eluphant and Junhyung’s Friendship is Becoming a Topic.

After Eluphant released his digital single ‘She Is Not Following you,’ Junhyung tweeted “I just came home after listening to Eluphant’s new single. For people who use twitter, the contents may seem familiar, but it’s above and beyond.” By doing so, he increased anticipation and expectations and promoted the song.

Junhyung spoke of their unique bond. “Before debuting, starting from age 20, I was in good terms with Eluphant’s Kebee hyung. BEAST’s current choreography was made possible through him. At that time, I was conned by entertainment company problems and other issues, but Kebee hyung gave me lots of strength and stood by me. He advised me that reading a lot of books is advantageous for writing raps, and even recommended me some poems. It gives me thoughts that he is an elite rapper with great sensibility.” “After hearing the songs that the hyungs played for me, I immediately uploaded tweets about it on my account. The track was really good. Because we were busy, we weren’t able to see each other often, but even now, we monitor each other and share opinions. To me, he is a hyung that I am always grateful for.” With this, he expressed his affection.
