K-pop idols HyunA and Dawn have ended their relationship, more than five years after they first got together.

HyunA, whose full name is Kim Hyun-ah, announced on her Instagram account on Wednesday: “We broke up. I decided to stay as a good friend and colleague from now on. Thank you for always supporting me and looking at me beautifully.”

Dawn, whose full name is Kim Hyo-jong, acknowledged their breakup with his own post on Instagram on Thursday. He did not include an English translation of his statement, but fan translations in the comments say that he wished HyunA well, and that he would take any necessary legal action against those who spread false rumours about them.
