After School‘s leader, Jung Ah, confirmed her friendship with SHINee‘s Onew through a press conference.
On June 13 After School had their comeback showcase for “First Love.” During the show case Jung Ah told the press, “Onew and I are not awkward with each other after dating rumors were started when we were photographed together in Apugujeong. It’s not awkward because I see him as a younger brother after knowing him for so long. We are still friendly and comfortable with each other.”
In March the two were photographed looking like they were on a date, sparking dating rumors. Both of their agencies denied that they were dating.
