Hyomin has since clarified that the post is not in reference to anyone.
T-ARA‘s Hyomin might have thrown some subliminal shade at her ex-boyfriend, soccer player Hwang Ui Jo.
On April 21, Hyomin, who is currently traveling in Australia, uploaded to her Instagram, notes from her English studies.
The picture, however, is causing some netizens to do a double-take. In the image is written, “I’d rather die than marry him” with “ㅋㅋㅋ,” the Korean equivalent of “LOL,” written next to the sentence.
Hyomin is fresh off a very public break-up with Soccer star Hwang Ui Jo. The couple released a statement stating, “Although the two met with good feelings towards one another, the spotlight proved too unbearable.”
Soon after the break-up, the idol stated she would be leaving for Australia to live there for a month.
Hwang Ui Jo is one of Korea’s brightest star athletes. The striker for the national team plays professionally in France’s Ligue 1 for FC Girondins de Bordeaux.
