After K-pop group2PM’s Nichkhun and Girls’ Generation’s Tiffany went public with their romance last week, rumours are rife that veteran band Shinhwa’s Eric and actress Na Hye Mi have also been dating for a period of time. However, Eric’s agency has clarified that the two are “not a couple”.

Besides being recently spotted at a shopping mall near Eric’s house, Hye Mi also attended Shinhwa’s 16th anniversary concert in Seoul last month, fuelling rumours about the couple.

According to Korean media, Eric’s agency initially claimed thatthe pair dated in the past, but they are “unsure” about the on-off couple’s current status. “We would have to check with Eric,” the rep said.

In a separate statement, the company emphasised that 35-year-old Eric and 23-year-old Hye Mi merely share a close “senior-junior relationship”. “We apologise for the confusion caused by discrepancies in our statements, due to internal miscommunication,” explained the agency.

While Hye Mi made her acting debut in 2001 film Address Unknown, her popularity rose sharply only after her appearance on hit drama Unstoppable High Kick five years later.
