Tattoos of E'Dawn
Dawn has various tattoos imprinted on his skin. He sees tattoos as a way of self-expression.
Tattoos are a big deal in the k-pop industry, however, Dawn broke the stereotype and tattoo himself in different designs. The singers are harshly judged for getting inked on their skin.
As A Member Of Triple H
Triple H was a three people group including Dawn, HyunA (former member of Wonder Girls and 4Minute), and Hui (Pentagon member) under Cube Entertainment. They made their debut in the year 2017 and were active till 2018.
They were popular as a trio and released two albums "199X" and "Retro Futurism".
The former pentagon member E'DAwn is happy in a relationship with the singer HyunA. The couple announced their relationship in the year 2018 claiming to be dating for two years since 2016.
They are very public about their relationships. They show love to each other through their social media account and fans are also very supportive of their relationship.
Their relationship[ first shocked everybody as the two have completely different personalities. However, they stuck together by each other's side and proved everyone as a compatible couple.
HyunA's parents at first were not so sure about their relationships due to the first impression of Dwan. However, the parents were later convinced about Dawn due to his love and affection towards HyunA.
Dawn once in an interview said:
“When she calls me by my real name, I get chills. My real name is Kim Hyo Jong, but she usually calls me by a term of endearment or just ‘DAWN.’ If I do something wrong, though, she’ll call me by my real name. It’s scary to be called by your full name, but the final ‘Hyo Jong’ is really scary too.”
“I usually call him jagi [a term of endearments like ‘honey or ‘darling’], but if I catch him at something, I’ll call him ‘Hyo Jong.’ He catches on right away when I do that.”
“I suddenly get a lot of thoughts in my head. I start to review everything I did since that morning.”
We can clearly see how much the couples are in love with each other through their interviews and social media accounts.
Kicked Out Of Cube Entertainment
Dawn alongside HyunA was kicked out of their current agency Cube Entertainment and together they joined the agency PNation. The reason behind them being kicked out of their former agency is their relationship.
They both said bye to their former agency in the year 2018 when they made their relationship public. Cube Entertainment kicked them out claiming that they were not loyal to their agency and broke everyone's trust.
