"They are in a beautiful relationship, so please see them in a good light and cheer them on," allkpop quoted E&J Entertainment as saying.

The actress even reportedly showed up at Shinhwa's anniversary concert and publicly displayed her affection for the singer.
They've also been seen together on dates at a PC café, grocery market, ski resort and much more. "Their relationship is known by the fans so if you search for Eric on portal sites, Na Hye Mi's Mune will also come up," said the source.
