KUALA LUMPUR: Momo of popular K-Pop group twice and Heechul of longstanding Korean music outfit Super Junior are now free to publicly declare their love to each other.
According to Koreaboo, the agencies that represent the two idols had finally acknowledged the relationship and issued statements on the matter.
Apparently, the good news was revealed by Market News earlier today although its previous report on the two being an item which came out about six months ago was denied by the idols’ respective agencies.
The statement from Twice’s agency, JYP Entertainment, read: “After looking into it, we can confirm that the two celebrities started as close senior-juniors, but recently developed feelings for each other and are meeting each other.”
Label SJ, which manages Super Junior, also issued a similar statement confirming that Momo, 23, and Heechul, 36, were officially an item.
Meanwhile, Koreaboo reported that Twice member Mina had done something special to celebrate the popular group’s 800th day since its debut.
Mina did something extremely giving and registered to be an organ donor in Korea. Apparently, it was reported that Mina has also been registered as an organ donor in Japan since 2013.
On her Instagram account, she posted: “ONCEs! Are you wrapping up this year well? Today is TWICE’s 800th day since debut. Congrats congrats. So to end this year, I’ve registered for an organ donor’s ID! To ONCEs, who always cheer us on and give us strength, thank you so so much. Please have a wonderful day again today.”
On a darker note, Soompi reported that JYP Entertainment had revealed that Twice member Nayeon was currently under police protection after a stalker had tried to approach her while boarding a plane in Japan.
Part of a statement by the agency read: “Today (Jan 1) when boarding a return flight from Japan to Korea, a stalker of Twice member Nayeon attempted to approach her numerous times after boarding. We were able to respond to the situation right away, and (Nayeon) wasn’t harmed, but she is currently quite disconcerted and anxious.”
“Due to the incident, Nayeon is currently under police protection. We warned the stalker several times to halt his actions, but he ignored our warnings and attempted to force his way through and raised his voice, escalating the situation with his problematic behaviour.”
“As a result, we will be taking the highest level of legal action available to us against (the stalker). Furthermore, we are also investigating the illegal dissemination of our artistes’ flight schedules and information. Especially after this recent disturbance, we are searching for a way to put an end to such activities as soon as possible.”
“We sincerely apologise to the other passengers on this flight for the disturbance caused by this incident. We will ensure that such an issue doesn’t happen again.”
