Members of Korean idol group SS501 opened up about their rumored summer romance earlier this year, explaining the truth behind paparazzi shots taken of them and two women in Hong Kong on a talkshow last night.
The five members appeared together on MBC's "Golden Fishery - Radio Star" on Wednesday and addressed rumors over a photo showing two of the group's members, Kim Hyun-joong and Heo Young Saeng, meeting up with two women and catching a taxi with them in August.
Heo said the women were "just close friends who live in Hong Kong" and Kim explained, "We went to Lan Quai Fong, the trendiest area in Hong Kong, and it turned out to be a place with the most paparazzi."
The five-member boy band debuted in 2005 with single "Warning" and have been active in Korea and Japan, releasing numerous albums both as a group and also pursuing individual careers such as acting and appearing in variety shows.
The group made a comeback to the music scene last month with their second mini-album "REBIRTH" which topped various music charts.
SS501 is scheduled to make another appearance on "Radio Star" on December 9.
