On April 10, EXID filmed the preproduction for a music show with fans. One of the fans at the site, according to a staff, asked Hyelin about the recent dating rumor with Monsta X’ Minhyuk and Hyelin replied that she the rumor is not true.

The rumor has been around among fans for a while and Hyelin raised her voice to clarify the fact.

Monsta X’ agency Starship Entertainment, too, clarified that the two artists are not dating each other.

“Minhyuk and Hyelin are not in a relationship,” said a source from Starship Entertainment. “They went to the same academy when they were trainees, but there is nothing more than that.”

Two K-pop groups recently made comebacks. EXID successfully showcased the new retro concept with “Do It Tomorrow,” while Monsta X also is doing great with their new release “Jealousy,” which is highlighted with powerful stage performances.
