Dawn Reflects on Defying Agency Advice and Opening Up about Relationship with HyunA
In a candid interview with Billboard, K-pop solo artist Dawn delved into his romantic journey with his former fiancée and fellow idol, HyunA. The couple, who first crossed paths while working under the same agency, CUBE Entertainment, began dating in 2018.
HyunA, known for her solo work and previous membership in the group 4MINUTE, and Dawn, a former member of PENTAGON, faced significant backlash from the public when news of their relationship surfaced. However, despite the agency’s advice to keep their romance private, the couple made the bold decision to go public with their love.
“We know that [our relationship] will stick with us, but we both thought it would be difficult to see our fans on stage [if we didn’t announce it],” Dawn shared during the interview. Their desire to be open and honest with their loyal supporters, who had shown unwavering love and support, motivated their decision to confidently reveal their relationship and present themselves joyfully on stage.
Dawn further revealed that his song “Dear My Light” served as a heartfelt reflection of his past relationship with HyunA, which had since come to an end. “It’s a pretty direct reflection of how I was feeling when I was in love,” he admitted.
Despite the challenges that accompanied their relationship, Dawn expressed his unwavering commitment to enduring them alongside HyunA. Drawing inspiration from a sentiment he once heard, he shared, “If you really love someone, then your brain oddly makes you think that your lover is actually you. So, you start cherishing them like you’re cherishing yourself.”
