Former WINNER member cheated on me, says singer.
Music artist Jang Jane, whose romance with former K-pop boy band member Nam Tae-hyun went public in April, said Friday he had been cheating on her.
Jang disclosed on Instagram a screenshot of an online chatroom conversation between Nam and an unknown woman he dated behind Jang's back.
In the chatroom, the woman, after learning that Nam's relationship with Jang was not finished yet, accuses him of lying to her. The woman reportedly heard from a friend that she had seen Nam and Jang together at a movie theater in Seoul's Yongsan District.
The woman claims in the chatroom that Nam lied to her that he and Jang had split a month ago, while Nam explains that he and Jang are "only friends."
Jang also shared a screenshot of a text message she received from the woman, who apologized and said she "would have never dated him if I knew you were still dating him."
"It was all lie," the woman told the New Era Project star in the message.
Jang, who rose to stardom after the TV music competition "Superstar K: Season 2" on Mnet in 2010, also posted on Instagram a memo of her post-cheat thoughts. She says she and staff at her company were dumbfounded when Nam went public about their romance.
"If he was going to cheat on me, he shouldn't have gone public about our relationship at the first place," she said.
In the memo, she further asks Nam's fans to "stop sending me bullying text messages" and warned the four-member rock band South Club's front-man to "at least keep some dignity ? although I doubt it will ever happen."
The short-lived romance came after they appeared together on the TV reality show "Studio Vibes" on tvN that first aired in early May.
The South, the agency Nam' established in 2017 after leaving WINNER the previous year, and New Era Project admitted the romance in late April. The newly announced couple's joint appearance on the program had made headlines.
After Jang accused Nam of cheating, the show's producers reportedly began editing pre-taped contents showing the two stars.
