This week brought the end of 2015 and a new start for a major K-pop couple. 

JYJ's Xia Junsu and EXID's Hani Reported To Be Dating

On Jan. 1, Korean media outlet Dispatch revealed a new popular idol couple. Xia Junsu, of JYJ and TVXQ fame, and trending-idol EXID's Hani have been dating for six months, according to Dispatch. The two were photographed together on several occasions.

Since the report, the relationship has been collaborated by Junsu and Hani's representatives. The pair allegedly began a relationship as friends and Junsu reportedly asked Hani to begin dating. There are concerns regarding the pair's future, since Junsu will have to go serve in the Korean military in the near future.

K-Pop Year End Award Shows

Countless popular K-pop idol groups appeared at year-end broadcasts on South Korea's biggest channels. The year end festivals put on by KBS, MBC, and SBS, were filled with performances of hit songs and collaborative tracks, as well as covers by idols of some of K-pop's most popular hits of yesteryear.

Along with music shows, K-pop idols also took in a variety of awards at year-end television award show ceremonies.

Injuries Affect BTS' Schedules

After months of ongoing promotions, K-pop idol group BTS appears unable to sustain itself for much longer. At least three members of the group were seriously injured this week, resulting in two cancelled concerts in Japan and a six-member performance at at least one year-end music festival.

The afflicted members of BTS- V, Suga, and Rap Monster- have all received medical testing and none are seriously injured or ill.
