Iranian actor and composer Hamed Tehrani revealed he is dating AOA's Mina and is planning to get married, Iranian news outlets reported.
The 31-year-old actor said he had asked Mina to come to Tehran last month, but she was caught up with her busy schedule and hence couldn't turn up.
"I'm dating Korean actress and singer AOA's Mina. Mina was going to come to Tehran last month, but she wasn't able to because she was so busy. I do not want the news of our dating to go public as I'm thinking of Mina's perspective. Mina will come to Tehran soon, and we're even thinking of marriage," Allkpop.com cited Tehrani as saying to the media.
However, both the sides have come forward to address the dating and marriage reports. In an interview with Yonhap News, Tehrani said: "I was very surprised by the headlines. The reports are false, and it's not true that I said those things. I apologize to AOA's Mina and K-pop fans in Iran who are angry."
Tehrani also reportedly deleted a photo of an autograph, which he received from Mina. When asked about it, he simply said: "I won't explain." FNC Entertainment, the agency of South Korean idol girl group AOA, strongly denied all such reports.
"The report is not true at all and we don't even know who that Iranian actor is," the agency said.
