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".

During a round-table interview for their upcoming mini album 'Remember', T-ara showed disappointment toward the fact that groups who debuted around the same time as they did are no longer around. 

The group was asked about entering their 30's, and answered, "We don't feel any age gaps between one another, since other than Jiyeon, we're all more or less 1 year apart. We don't feel pressured about entering our 30's. Because we live in a group, rather than living alone, it doesn't strike us [that they're entering their 30's]. A lot of groups who were active with us are no longer around. When we see our hoobaes on TV, it feels like we're watching celebrities." 

Soyeon added, "It's disappointing that we can't see teams who debuted alongside us any more, or it's hard to see them getting together. It would be great if we could all stay together for a long time, but it can't be helped since it has to do with individual situations. But in heart, we probably all want to stay together."
