SM Entertainment responded…

Veteran idol, Kangta of H.O.T, was caught up in two dating rumors today as news reports claimed he was dating actress Jung Yoo Mi but his ex-girlfriend claimed they were back together again.

News reports claimed that Kangta was dating actress Jung Yoo Mi for the past 2 years.

But within hours of the news report, racing model Woo Joo Ahn accidentally leaked a video of herself having a date with Kangta at a sauna.

In the video, they were seen joking around while Kangta gave her a kiss on the lips before the two burst into smiles.

Woo Joo Ahn quickly took down the post and explained that Kangta and she had dated in the past and broken up last year. She revealed that they have recently gotten back together again and that she had posted the video on accident.

I’m sincerely sorry to have caused an inconvenience and difficult time for many people today.

Kangta and I had broken up last year after dating, but we recently began seeing each other again.

I offended and worried many people by accidentally posting an old video that we took together last year.

I would like to sincerely apologize to Kangta who was probably surprised by my mistake, as well as everyone who I had hurt.

However, SM Entertainment soon responded with their own statement that contradicted her statements. They explained that Kangta and Woo Joo Ahn had “already broken up years ago.

They also explained that Kangta and Jung Yoo Mi are merely friends and are not dating. Jung Yoo Mi’s agency also denied the claims.

The dating rumors are not true. They are just close colleagues.
