In the worst timing ever, one day before Song Yuvin and fellow MYTEEN member Kim Kook Heon made their unit debut, a photo of him and Produce 101's Kim So Hee kissing leaked online.
The pic sparked a lot of speculation on if they were dating and if a MYTEEN sasaeng or someone close to the two (or even a disgruntled MYTEEN member) leaked the pic.
Music Woks stated “While it’s true that Song Yu Vin and Kim So Hee briefly dated a year ago, after checking [with them], we learned that they have already broken up.”
The two were label mates at Music Works, before Kim So Hee's contract expired in July. Song Yu Vin previously appeared in Kim So Hee’s music video for her solo title track “Sobok Sobok” in 2017. The two singers also collaborated on a song for the OST of the 2016 drama “Bring It On, Ghost.”
Hello. This is Kim So Hee.
First, I really want to make that I say that I am so sorry to my fans, who were probably the most surprised, and to everyone who supports me for the photo that was suddenly released in the early hours of the morning. At the time, we were in the same agency and we supported, comforted, and relied on each other in very difficult times, leading to us starting to see each other.
However, we were faced with busy schedules and many difficult situations, so we decided to go back to just being close coworkers.
I am also so taken aback by how the photo was obtained and spread. I am so sorry for causing concern to the many fans who support me. From now on, I will work harder to show you only my best.
Once again, to my fans, I am sorry..
Hello, this is Song Yu Vin.
First, I want to apologize to my fans and to the people that support me by causing them concern with the photo that was leaked earlier this morning… Beginning with the audition program many years ago, I have been working hard to achieve my dream of becoming a singer.
In the end, I was able to achieve my dream and become a singer at a young age. But when your dream is to become a singer, there is always a wall in front of you called “reality.” That “reality” caused me a lot of despair and exhausted me both physically and mentally.
At that time, there was a colleague at my agency. We helped each other through the hard times and became a source of strength for one another.
However, we grew distant in front of that wall called “reality” and returned to being colleagues. Today, a photo from the time we spent together was leaked illegally.
I do not resent or blame whoever leaked the photo for whatever reason. I am only deeply sorry that I might have caused disappointment to my fans and other people who saw the photo. I am sincerely sorry.
I also want to sincerely apologize to Kim Kook Heon and Kim So Hee, who have also received damage because of me. I’m sorry.
Once again, I’m sorry to the people who have supported me for so long by causing them concern with a private photo that was not intentionally revealed.
