Following love rumors and paparazzi cuts, the agencies of SHINee′s Onew and After School′s Jung-A have denied the rumors altogether, saying that "the two are close as senior and junior."

On March 25, a media outlet had reported that Onew and Jung-A have been dating for about a year, and that despite their busy schedules, found time to meet, mostly in Jung-A′s car. Paparazzi cuts showing the two together had been attached to the article.

A rep from Pledis, Jung-A′s agency, told enews, "The two are close as senior and junior. They′ve had meals together for a long time and we′ve known the two are close. We′re surprised about the sudden love rumors."

The rep also said, "We′ve checked with Jung-A herself about the rumors. She said they′re close friends, not lovers."

Onew′s agency SM Entertainment merely stated, "We will check with Onew himself. We′ve known the two to be close friends."

SHINee is currently promoting its new single Dream Girl while After School has been preparing for a new album to be released in April.

Another translation of Pledis' statement.

After paparazzi captured shots of SHINee‘s Onew and After School‘s Jung Ah sitting inside a car together and exiting a restaurant, rumors have flared that the two idols were in a relationship with each other.

However, in a press release distributed just a few minutes ago, Jung Ah’s agency, Pledis Entertainment, denied all charges of a relationship between the two idols.

“The two of them are merely close friends, not dating,” they said, denying the reports. “As fellow entertainment workers, Jung Ah and Onew have a close relationship where they advise each other. Today, their schedules matched so they were only enjoying a light meal together, and weren’t dating like media agencies have reported.”

Earlier, Korean media agency Kuki News ran an exclusive report along with pictures, quoting a close friend with the two idols that “they have been dating for one year”.

3/26 Update:

Onew swept up in another controversy for smoking electronic cigarettes

SHINee‘s Onew is caught up in yet another controversy and this time, it’s regarding him smoking electronic cigarettes.

On March 25, dating rumors of Onew and After School’s Jungah re-sparked after a few photos of the two together were taken at Apgu-jung.

In a couple of the pictures, netizens pointed out that Onew was smoking an electronic cigarette. Opinions have been split over this matter.

Some netizens have been defending Onew by saying, “He’s an adult, who cares,” “This is more shocking than the dating rumor but I understand,” “He’s an adult, he wasn’t on broadcast so who cares,” and more.

But on the contrary, some have been commenting, “I liked Onew’s innocent and clear image so this is really shocking,” “This is the third hit of controversies for Onew,” “He needs to take care of his image,” and more.

Meanwhile, Onew’s agency denied the dating rumors with Jungah and stated, “They are just close colleagues.”
Onew has been caught up in a whirlwind of controversies lately, including the middle finger incident, not too long ago.

I don't know what to believe anymore. It's seems like ever since Onew's scandal, he's been getting attacked ever since. x.x
So the news about Onew, especially negative ones, I don't know if I can believe them anymore because I'm scared about people are making them up just to give him a bad image.
I really wish I can protect and defend him. But I know I can't and it hurts me.
And if the dating thing is true, so what? Yes, it's shocking 'cause it's so sudden. They're all going to find someone eventually(though they should really wait until their 'idol' days are over OTL).
Plus, they tweet each other all the time. Them being close is not anything new. Also, just because they're close, doesn't mean they're dating. You're allowed to have guy or girl best friends. x.x

Wow, I'm sorry for the long post. I just feel so over protective right now.

I'm betting it's true, but I'm glad that whoever's doing PR for the companies decided to collaborate and release a decent statement. Unlike that mess that was IU and Eunhyuk...
But if it is true, I'm hoping they can continue dating since Onew has seemed so happy recently :)

Shocked at first, i never expect that it's going to be Jung Ah, I think it would be YoonA, Luna, etc.
It's okay, if they're really dating, It proves that he is human, Not a fallen angel :xD
If this true, pleaaaaasseeee!!! Just let them...!
I can't see another member bowing for apologize because of his fate for being a human...! I Know we love them shawol, so, let them be happy! ;)

I don't know if i'm buying this or not. I mean, i feel like this is a classic case of 'can men and women really just be close friends?' especially ones that go out for dinner together often. With just the two of them. In the car~ lol i'm not even making sense. Bottomline, if jinki's happy then the fans should be happy for him as well. Anyway, taking everything with a HUGE grain of salt haha now excuse me while i try to sort out my feels~

i only remember seeing a rumor that onew is dating a girl but sm force him to break up with that girl because that girl isn't a idol/artist..
but if sm denied than maybe they really didn't date.. if they didn't denied jonghyun-sekyung dating thing than why can't they did it too if they are really dating.. but it was true than they are another cute couple XD jung ah was cool~

I think a year is a bit too long to hide any relationship (Jonghyun's was found out in something like 3 months). If they are dating, I would be super excited and happy for him. Everyone deserves some love, and I find it depressing that idols cannot date like everyone else does in their age group. If they aren't dating, I'm glad Onew has some friends and actually goes out!

Ahh.. Of course I want their happiness, and Jung ah is a really sweet person, but I can't deny this still makes me sad. It's a sense of jealousy, I suppose. Either way, I hope this blows over quickly, because it's sad that idols can't even hang out with friends without rumors forming.

Although this is, in big part, the way the media wants to exploit SHINee since they're the hot topic right now due to their comeback. I mean.. we already knew they were close right?

Am I the only one that is not affected by this? LOL.
Because for some reason I just know that they are not together.
If they were they would have taken every single precaution to not have any obvious connections,
like following each other on Twitter and tweeting to each other.

Besides if it's true, it shouldn't be too much of a big deal because the boys are human after all, they WILL date and they WILL get married someday.

I know everyone still has some form of 'scars' from the Jonghyun+Sekyung thing, and that was a huge shock for all of us.
But I hope that since 3 years has passed, the Korean fans and international fans have grown and will be more forgiving and more understanding.
This is our dubu leader Onew who has every right to love who he wants to love ^^.
