Several reports earlier in the day had stated the two were dating, citing photographs fans had posted of the two wearing identical earrings over several occasions.
Most recently, Leeteuk had worn a silver bunny earring on his right ear at the press conference for the U.S. leg of SM's world tour in Los Angeles on September 6 while Taeyeon wore the same accessory on the same ear as well when she showed up at the red carpet event in Korea for Universal Pictures' animated film "Despicable Me" the next day.
"It's just a matter of coincidence. I'm at a loss for words", an official at SM Entertainment said to Asia Economic Daily over the phone.
It is not the first time rumors of the two dating have surfaced -- they sparked in March when they were spotted wearing identical necklaces.
Leeteuk, 27, is the leader of his popular 13-man band and has played several small screen roles as well as hosting variety and radio programs.
Taeyeon, six years younger, is the leader and main vocalist of her nine-member girl group. She too has appeared in several variety shows.
