It has been revealed that member of the K-Pop boy band Super Junior Kim Heechul (36) and main dancer from the girl group TWICE Momo (23) are in a relationship. Their agencies have confirmed the information.
"After getting along as close colleagues in show business, the two have recently started liking and dating each other", Kim's agency, Label SJ, said as cited by The Korea Herald.
Momo's agency JYP Entertaiment said that the relationship between the two artists started after a sunbae-hoobae (older-younger colleague) friendship in the industry and had recently turned romantic.
Fans all over the world have voiced support for the couple on Twitter:
the first time the news about momo and heechul got out I was kinda iffy about it because of the age gap but...— Alja🖤 (@taemin_anteater) January 2, 2020
rn all I care about is about them being happy and I hope their relationship being public won't ruin it..if I see anyone hating on them y'all getting blocked😘
one of the reasons why we aren't even surprise is because we knew that #Heechul were always vocal when it comes to his feels towards our momo, lyk if momo and heechul will not going to end up together then what's the point, i mean they're perfectly fine being together pic.twitter.com/FydbRD8CjS— 𝓙 𝓪 𝓷 𝓰 ♡ (@ryuxxjean) January 2, 2020
