Singer Seol Hyun of girl group AOA and rapper Zico of Block B have broken up after dating for six months.
The former idol star couple officially ended their relationship on Tuesday. An official from the rapper’s agency, Seven Seasons (KQ Entertainment), said, “The two split up due to personal reasons. The public interest on their relationship was getting too much to handle, and their relationship suffered as a result. We can’t reveal too many details since it involves their private lives.”
Following the announcement, the Block B member posted a message on his Instagram account. “Check out my soundcloud,” the message read, providing an instrumental of his song “It Was Love,” which was released in January. The post also contained an image of a couple looking away from each other.
The two previously announced their couple status in August. “We started talking to each other casually,” the rapper said on MBC’s variety show “Radio Star.” “We grew interested in each other for no exact reason. Our relationship came about very naturally.”
