T-ara’s Hyomin has recently broken up with football player, Hwang Ui-Jo.

As reported on HK01, the news was confirmed by Hyomin’s agency following rumours of their breakup that sparked on 8 March, first admitting that the singer was dating Hwang as was rumoured back in January.

“However, due to the pressure, the two sides naturally grew apart and decided to remain friends instead. In the future, they will continue to cheer for each other,” her rep added.

It is noted that Hyomin and Hwang were first rumoured to be dating back in November last year, after paparazzi snapped photos of the two together.

They were also rumoured to have gone on a trip to Switzerland together.

Hwang plays for the FC Girondins de Bordeaux, while Hyomin most recently released her comeback single with T-ara in late 2021.
