After exchanging a significant hello with L actor Kim Jun-su, the couple have just announced that they've been dating ever since. Roll over Light Yagami! This time it's L who gets the pop idol girlfriend!
Hani's mom seems to be quite quick off the mark too. Having heard on the grapevine that Junsu quite fancied her celebrity daughter, Hani's mother bought tickets for the theatrical production of Death Note, and ensured that the couple met backstage through Hani's connections. Or as the singer put it,
My Mom knew enough to tell me, '[Junsu] says he's a fan of you.'... I went to see the 'Death Note' musical with my mom. [Junsu] himself got us tickets to the show. My Mom came with me knowing that Junsu had an interest in me.

Korean pop gossip fans are currently ooohing over the news that it's been Junsu doing all the running, hunting her down after that first chance meeting at the Death Note Musical, enamoured of her 'beauty inside'. Though presumably Hani's beauty outside hasn't hurt her case much either.
As Hani has spent the autumn busy with EXID promoting Hot Pink, Junsu has been turning up at various junctures on the schedule, picking his celebrity girlfriend up in his Aston Martin 007. The pair would then retire to his house - he's currently bunking up with his manager - where they could get to know each other without the glare of paparazzi and fans in their faces.
Nevertheless, that's not always been a successful policy. Korean Media Despatch photographers caught the couple shopping in the run up to Christmas, and delighted in revealing the pairing in their January 1st 2016 edition.
Since then, KPop Fighting and other media sources have also run with the story. Including now us.
