DIA's Jueun and BTOB's Sungjae dating? Agencies deny; Woo Woo thrives

MBK Entertainment and Cube Entertainment responded to recent dating rumors concerning Jueun and Sungjae, who are the same age.

MBK: "It is not true that she is dating Yook Sungjae. It is true that they were recently at a gathering with acquaintances, but we have checked [with her] and found out that they are not close."

Cube: "We checked with him, and it is true that they were at a gathering with acquaintances, but they are not dating."

However, the rumors may have drawn some attention to DIA's latest single "Woo Woo," as the song shot to the top of Melon's Rising Chart. "Woo Woo" rose a total of 364 positions on the chart. This is great news for DIA fans, since the group previously expressed worries that this comeback might be their last.
