In an exclusive report, it was revealed by SPOTV that 2AM’s Seulong, who spent more than 8 years in JYP Entertainment, was the link who brought Kang Daniel and TWICE’s Jihyo together.
Seulong promoted during his 2AM days while Jihyo was still a trainee in JYP Entertainment, and the two even spent some of their trainee days together.
2AM debuted in 2008, 3 years into Jihyo’s famous 10 year trainee period. Through his years in the industry, Seulong built up a network of friends and acquaintances.
Kang Daniel and Jihyo got to know each other through Seulong, and eventually started their relationship earlier in 2019. Dispatch reported on the news around 10 am KST, and around 3 hours later, both JYP and KONNECT Entertainment confirmed the news.
