Soon after the Dispatch’s report, the agencies of Seolhyun, FNC Entertainment, and ZICO’s agency, Seven Seasons, confirmed the couple’s relationship by saying that Seolhyun and ZICO became attached to, and relied on each other, while going through difficult times. The agencies also asked the public and fans to keep supporting the two stars dearly.
Well, to tell you the truth, long before the Dispatch’s released photos about them, the rumor of Seolhyun and ZICO’s relationship had surfaced on the internet in January 2016. It is reported that whenever people type ‘Seolhyun’ on the famous online portal site, ‘ZICO’ would appear, and vice versa. Seolhyun and ZICO’s name were also included in the foretelling about the new couple in a popular web page at Facebook.
In addition, before their secret dates’ pictures got leaked by Dispatch, fans had taken photos at Haneda Airport, Japan which hinted that these two popular idol group members were dating. In those pictures, we can see that Seolhyun and ZICO were focused on their phones while sitting back to back. While they are not directly facing each other, Seolhyun and ZICO might just be texting each other, just like a boyfriend and girlfriend should be!
At the end of August 2016, ZICO appeared on MBC ‘Radio Star’ and was bombarded instantly by the MCs of the show regarding his relationship with Seolhyun. ZICO answered the question about what factor made him fall for Seolhyun, by saying that they just knew each other as a sunbae (senior) and hoobae (junior) and carefully kept contacting each other without realizing that both of them are slowly interested to be more than co-workers and casual friends. When he was asked by Simon D whether he liked to play hard to get and whether he would instantly read Seolhyun’s messages as soon as they popped up, ZICO said that his personality does not include the play hard to get trait and he could not read Seolhyun’s messages while he was still working so he will read them as soon as he finished his work.
Unfortunately, just one month later after the broadcast of MBC ‘Radio Star’, the news sites reported that AOA’s Seolhyun and Block B’s ZICO had broken up after six months of dating since March 2016. Many people think that the couple broke up due to the negative comments from the public, which put pressure on them to end the relationship.

Who is Seolhyun’s Boyfriend?
As per a prior appearance on Brave Family, Seolhyun had one boyfriend she dated in secondary school. Since she had a particularly busy schedule as a teenager, she could barely meet her ex-boyfriend.
It’s not clear yet when they separated, but they obviously did later in life because of Seolhyun’s busy schedule. Since she’s significantly busier with stage performances, CFs, and acting, Seolhyun presumably has even less time to spend on her relationships.
Indeed, in 2016, news source Dispatch uncovered that Seolhyun had begun a romantic relationship with Block B’s ZICO. After only a half year of dating, however, they separated because of the significant pressing factor of having a public relationship.
From records of Seolhyun’s experiences, it’s extremely hard for both rookie and veteran idols to discover an opportunity to adjust both their schedules and relationship. As of now, Seolhyun is single as she’s still active in the entertainment industry and can’t find the time to nurture another romantic relationship.
