A couple of hours ago, Label SJ and JYP confirmed that TWICE Momo and Super Junior Heechul were dating, according to both agencies the couple started dating only recently.
The original report published about the couple was released by a news outlet called Market News that had originally also reported on the same topic back in August of 2019, at the time both agencies firmly denied the news.
