AOA's Seolhyun and Block B's Zico budding relationship became a hot topic online this month. The cute idols started their career around the same time (AOA debuted in 2012 and Block B in 2011), and now they are enjoying couple life together. From their musical genres, it seems like the perfect case of opposites attract, but they actually have several factors that make them a match made in K-Pop heaven. 

1. They are big hits in the entertainment world.

Zico debuted as the outspoken rapper with Block B in 2011, while Seolhyun became the publicized AOA member when she debuted in 2012. His expressive lyrics create controversy all over South Korea. She is quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with in the acting realm. 

2. They are close in age.

The two stars are three years apart and probably can relate on a lot of issues. They literally grew up in the Pokemon age! Those pocket monsters are like old friends to them.

3. Zico's ideal type is healthy and glamorous. 

In March, he appeared on an episode of KBS' variety program Happy Together and pretty much indirectly described Seolhyun as his dream girl. He admitted he is attracted to "healthy and glamorous" ladies.

4. Seolhyun played a vampire on TV, while Zico thinks he looks evil.

Last year, the AOA member gave viewers the chills when she portrayed vampire Baek Ma Ri in the romantic fantasy series Orange Marmalade. Zico has been vocal in the past about what he considers his dark, evil appearance. They have both been in touch with the dark side.

5. They have worked and been influenced by A-list stars. 

Seolhyun starred alongside Lee Min Ho in Gangnam Blues. Zico was a featured artist on f(x)'s 4 Walls album. 

Do you think they will surpass fellow celebrity power couples like Lee Min Ho and Suzy or Rain and Kim Tae Hee
