Former T-ara member Areum was recently eliminated from The Unit, but she has managed to win something much better: love!

This week, the 23-year-old announced her relationship with rookie actor Lee Seung Jae in a sweet Instagram post.

Sharing a selfie of herself and her new beau, Areum wrote: "We met in 2017 with many rough times, and I also experienced a major life crisis. I didn’t have anywhere to lean on while filming, and although it was rough, thank you so much for giving me strength, getting angry for me, and being by my side eventually to the end."

She concluded: “I will work hard to live well and be a woman that can also give you happiness. Thank you for being born.”

Despite being eliminated from The Unit, it looks like things are going just fine for Areum!
