Top Korean management firm SM Entertainment has denied that its artists Lee Teuk of boy band Super Junior and Taeyeon of female idol group Girls' Generation are in a romantic relationship.
Several reports earlier in the day had stated the two were dating, citing photographs fans had posted of the two wearing identical earrings over several occasions.
"It's just a matter of coincidence. I'm at a loss for words," an official at SM Entertainment said to Asia Economic Daily over the phone.
It is not the first time rumors of the two dating have surfaced -- they sparked in March when they were spotted wearing identical necklaces.
Taeyeon, six years younger, is the leader and main vocalist of her nine-member girl group. She too has appeared in several variety shows.
