Breaking: Super Junior’s Ryeowook confirmed to be dating with former TAHITI member Ari.
Early on the morning of September 30, Super Junior’s management company Label SJ confirmed that Ryeowook and Ari (Tahiti) had started dating. Specifically, the representatives of Ryeowook said: “We confirmed that Ryeowook and Ari are in a romantic relationship after they were first close as senior and junior artists.”
Not long after, Ryeowook’s side posted a letter on his personal page, apologizing to fans as well as admitting that he was dating a 7-year-old junior.
Original letter of Ryeowook (Super Junior) letter:
Hello, this is Ryeowook.
I’m sorry for making you all wait so long.
I was worried about how to get started, while thinking about ELF (Super Junior fandom name) who must have felt hurt by the news, no matter what I say.
First of all, I feel sorry to announce this way about my meeting with that friend. Thinking about that, I think ELF has supported me a lot and considered letting me meet that friend again. I should think more deeply about it and I am reflecting on myself. I think my lack of consideration has caused more confusion.
I am dating the friend that everyone is talking about.
There were misunderstandings going around, stories that I never talked about or thought about. Both Super Junior and ELF are precious to me. Unfortunately, there are so many false rumors circulating.
I have hurt my ELF a lot. All the nicknames and expressions on Bubble are purely sincere .. There is nothing that I am not sincere about. In a recent selfie with a bouquet of flowers that I uploaded was a bouquet that a company employee gave me to a concert.
I don’t use social media and Bubble is the only way I can communicate with ELF. You guys have also chosen this place to socialize with me, so I always try my best to be happy to reciprocate your love. I really want to be able to share my everyday life with ELF, and I don’t want you guys to feel lonely or sad.
I started planning to open a coffee shop for my parents to work with, since they were very idle. Which all of you are thinking about, will never happen. I don’t want to use the name Ryeowook Super Junior for such things. I don’t know much about that field, so I wanted to ask a friend for help. I apologize for hurting you with my rash thoughts.
My actions hurt the ELF. You gave me love and trust, and although I didn’t deserve it, I feel sorry.
I am also very sorry to my members who were surprised by this news. I will think carefully before I act from now on.
I will become Ryeowook with a greater responsibility to repay all the trust and support that you have shown me. I will try my best not to interfere with Super Junior’s activities, that is my top priority. Thank you for believing in me until now. ”
