T-ara recently sat down for a round-table interview for their upcoming mini album 'Remember', where Soyeon opened up about her scandal with Japanese wakeboarder Shota Tezuka.
The scandal occurred this past September, but MBK Entertainment quickly denied that the two were dating, saying, "T-ara's Soyeon and Shota Tezuka are not yet dating. The two have been friends for the past 3 years. Soyeon and Shota Tezuka, who've maintained a good relationship, are in the stage where they're slowly opening up to being more than friends since this past August."
Soyeon added on during her interview, "We did not admit to dating. It was falsely reported. I don't have a boyfriend right now. We don't have any dating restrictions, and I'm not the type to hide things. It's exactly as the label stated before."
She did seem to still be friends with the wakeboarder, also commenting, "He's an athlete, so he travels all over and is very busy, which means we don't have time to hang out. We do keep in touch. I'm thinking over things. I'm the type to think about going into a relationship for a long time before I do."
Meanwhile, T-ara will be making a comeback this November 9 with a medium tempo title track called "TIAMO".
