Kim Hee-chul and Momo confirm dating rumors


Kim Hee-chul of boy band Super Junior, left, and Momo of girl group Twice are in love, their agencies confirmed on Thursday.

On Wednesday, media outlet Market News reported that 37-year-old Kim and 24-year-old Momo -- whose real name is Momo Hirai -- were dating.

The two agencies soon confirmed the report.

“The two have been close friends inside the entertainment industry, and they have recently started seeing each other on good terms,” Kim’s agency Label SJ said.

JYP Entertainment, the agency for Twice, released the same statement.

This is the first time for Kim to make a relationship public since his debut in 2005 as a member of Super Junior.

Market News had previously reported that Kim and Momo were dating last summer, but their two agencies denied it at the time.

Momo was born in Kyoto and debuted as a member of Twice in 2015. She is one of group’s three Japanese members and the group’s main dancer.
