The pictures of the couple
The photos that the media outlet, Sports Seoul had published were taken two months after the budding romance of the couple began. In one of the photos, Tony was waiting in his car for Hyeri to come out of her agency. Hyeri looked around cautiously before getting into Tony’s car. She was unaware that the paparazzi were photographing her. The car then took off towards Olympic Road.
In another photo, the two celebrities are beside a cafe and in the background is a lovely view of the Han River. They had tea and refreshments at this place and also talked over tea. Both looked in a happy mood. Tony was intermittently smiling and looking in the eyes of his girlfriend. And in the third snap, the two returned in Tony’s car to Hyeri’s agency. The female singer went inside while Tony waited for some time and then left.
The relationship timeline of the couple

The respective agencies of the two singers had also put on record that the two are indeed dating each other. Their relationship was new and growing. Tony’s agency said that he liked her good manners and great personality. On the other hand, Tony’s outgoing personality and considerate nature attracted Hyeri towards him, as per the agency of Hyeri.
But this relationship did not last. Just 8 months after they started a relationship, the couple split in November 2021. Her agency said that it was a mutual decision.
