I can’t answer questions about my personal matters but you guys just do what you guys want and ask personal questions and that’s also making me want to do whatever I want.”
The next set of ‘evidence’ is by Hyungwon’s peers. In an interview, fellow MONSTA X member Shownu picked Hyungwon as the member who’ll be most charming when dating and explained that Hyungwon is the pure type who only looks at one girl.

Meanwhile, Starship Entertainment responded to the dating rumors via the official home page of MONSTA X on August 4. The label explained, “In early 2016, Hyungwon broke up with the girl he was dating. The girl has uploaded posts on her social media that led to misunderstandings.” Starship Ent. also warned legal action against netizens who spread malicious and false rumors about Hyungwon.
Fans are angered by the label’s response. “If they really did break up early last year, then it’s actually Yoon Hee who’s spreading the false rumors but why are they threatening legal action against innocent fans? They better give a better feedback asap”, stated a fan.
