According to the report, the 'friend', who reported Hyoyeon (25) for accidentally hitting him, was her boyfriend of two years, writer Kim Jun Hyung (35).
The two met through mutual friends and their friendship naturally blossomed into dating for the past two years. The media outlet says the couple have broken up and gotten back together before, and were recently spotted at a restaurant in Gangnam last month, fueling dating rumors.
An insider revealed, "That man is actually Hyoyeon's boyfriend. After that incident [April Fools' Day & police reporting] the two kind of drifted but up til then, they were a lovey-dovey couple. However, it's not clear how their relationship is now. After the joking around that grew into a big issue, it seems it'll be too burdensome for the two to continue to meet."
According to an allkpop article, SM Entertainment responded quickly to reveal that the two were indeed a couple, but have broken up.
It's not clear whether they drifted apart with the recent April Fools' Day incident, but a rep spoke on behalf of the agency, "Hyoyeon and Kim Jun Hyung have already broken up."
