In response to those reports, a source from JYP and Label SJ said they’re currently looking into the rumors and are checking with their idols.
After a couple of hours, both JYP and Label SJ confirmed that Momo and Heechul are indeed dating.
JYP told news outlets that the couple relationship recently progressed from a close sunbae-hoobae friendship to a romantic relationship and that they’re meeting with good feelings, they only started dating recently. Label SJ also confirmed the news with a similar statement, they have started dating recently not like what the news outlet report had claimed.
They share an age gap of 13 years. Heechul is 36, Momo is 23. Heechul debuted as a part of Super Junior in 2005, and Momo debuted as part of TWICE in 2015.
