Seol-hyun of girl band AOA and Zico of boy band Block B have been in a romantic relationship for five months.
Seol-hyund's agency on Wednesday said they two became close because they "counted on each other while going through tough times."
Seol-hyun and fellow member Ji-min went through a rough patch in May, when they were ridiculed for their lack of knowledge of Korean history, failing to identify freedom fighter Ahn Jung-geun on a TV show.
Zico helped cheer Seol-hyun up.
Zico's agency said the pair are "close friends and still getting to know each other."
But gossip website Dispatch, which broke their relationship, said the two have been dating for five months.
Seol-hyun made her debut with AOA in 2012 and appeared in TV dramas and films while becoming a favorite with advertisers. Zico is the leader and rapper of the seven-member boy band.
