It was recently revealed that KARA’s Goo Hara (City Hunter) and B2ST’s Jun Hyung are a new idol couple!
So how was this new couple born? It was reported that when Goo Hara was going through some tough times, Jun Hyung consoled her. From one idol to another, there are a lot of the same pressures and problems, so its understandable for her to confide in another idol. The two companies, DSP(KARA) and Cube Entertainment (B2ST) claimed that they knew the two were friends but didn’t know it had developed anywhere past that.
The two were spotted on a casual date, quite easily actually as Goo Hara and Jun Hyung weren’t being very secretive. It was reported that they were holding hands openly and that when in the car, Goo Hara even rolled down the window and stuck her head out.
As we can see the couple didn’t attempt to hide their identities as they walked openly without the usual baseball cap and sunglasses. A bold move on the young couples part, since fans have been known to take news of idols dating quite harsh in the past. One example was SHINee’s Jonghyun and actress Shin Se Kyung (High Kick Through the Roof). Fans were so outraged at the news that Shin Se Kyung had 4 separate sites dedicated to hating her the next day. Fortunately, the steam died down and they were left alone, only to find out that they broke up recently due to different schedules. If no one had known, the two could have ended things quietly. Fortunately for Goo Hara, she doesn’t seem to be getting as much grief.
What does everyone think? Should more idols be open about their relationships or is ignorance bliss?
