Singer Ben and singer-songwriter 40 have firmly denied rumors that they are dating.
Ben’s agency told reporters on December 9 that the two became close friends as they worked together on music, but talk of them dating is definitely unfounded.
40’s side also said, “The rumors may have come about because they’re very close and meet often, but they are really not dating.”
A media source had reported earlier that both had been dating for six months, and that they had been seen on dates in and around Seoul since summer this year.
Ben has been on a steady rise to fame after featuring on the OSTs for a range of dramas including “Producer,” “Oh My Ghostess,” “Oh My Venus,” “Another Oh Hae Young,” and “Moonlight Drawn By Clouds.” She will also be appearing in the musical “Death Note” as Amane Misa, Light’s girlfriend. The musical opens in January next year, and stars top musical actors JYJ’s Kim Junsu, Han Ji Sang, Park Hye Na, and Kang Hong Suk.
40 has also been receiving a lot of attention for his song “Please Take My Love Letter.” Other songs in his repertoire include “Soul,” “Counting Stars,” and “Sing the Spring.”
