KUALA LUMPUR: Recent reports speculating that Jihyo of popular K-Pop group Twice and hunky singer Daniel Kang were a couple have been confirmed today.
According to Soompi, Jihyo’s agency JYP Entertainment and Kang’s agency KONNECT Entertainment both had commented that: “They are currently meeting up and showing interest in each other.”
Previous reports had stated that Kang and Jihyo were seen going on a date in the neighbourhood of Hannam in Seoul last Thursday.
It was revealed that the two idols have been dating each other since the beginning of the year after first meeting at Kang’s home.
A source close to the two celebs said: “A sunbae (idol) close to Kang Daniel and Jihyo introduced the two to each other.”
It was also reported that the two would get together for a meet up once a week.
They were apparently together on the day before Jihyo had flown overseas for Twice’s world tour, as well as on the day after her return flight.
The two had also met up after Kang’s solo debut showcase on July 25.
A report by Dispatch revealed that Jihyo and Kang, a former Wanna One member and Produce 101: Season 2 winner, were already an “official” couple in Twice.
It is believed that one of the members of the girl group had given Jihyo a ride to Kang’s home and returned to pick her up again later.
