As always, the first idol couple of the year was officially confirmed and announced right as 2020 began on January 2nd KST, by Super Junior’s Heechul and TWICE’s Momo!
The two have maintained a great friendship as well as a sunbae-hoobae relationship for a while now, so their blossoming relationship had been of interest to many for quite some time, though both their labels had denied the rumors when it first surfaced back in August of 2019. However, both Label SJ and JYP Entertainment have now officially confirmed that the two are happily dating despite their busy schedules.
Label SJ has come forth with their statement:
Hello, this is Label SJ. We have confirmed with Heechul and Momo that they have recently started dating from being a close sunbae and hoobae. Thank you.
& JYP Entertainment has released their statement:
Hello, this is JYP Entertainment. We are confirming that Heechul and Momo are in a relationship. They have recently started a relationship that grew from a sunbae-hoobae friendship in the industry. Thank you.
A huge congrats to the two!
