Sparks flew when they met while filming The Romantic & Idol, but ZE:A's Hyungsik and 4Minute star Ji Hyun have denied they are an item.
Since choosing each other on the reality dating show, rumours have been flying that the pair are officially dating, but they're ready to set the record straight.
In an interview with tvN's enews, Hyungsik, 21, says: "I really felt attached to her during the shoots, but we're not dating."
"I became interested in getting to know her through the program. She's the best. She's also really nice. We show support for each other and give advice. I′m not only close with [Jihyun], but all the idol group members who appeared on the show at the time. We even made a small group [of friends]."
Ji Hyun, 23, adds: "Like Hyung Sik said in his interview, we are not in a deep relationship. I want to thank the fans who like us, but I wanted to make this clear because I keep receiving mentions [on Twitter] about the issue. The Romantic and Idol didn't have a script, though. We've just decided to be good friends."
