foChoi Jong Hoon of F. T. Island and rhythmic gymnast Son Yeon Jae are dating. The rock band leader and "gymnastics fairy" met in February and started dating in March according to Dispatch, who reported on the couple’s dates in Seoul and Tokyo.

In the evening of May 27, a day before Son’s birthday, Choi threw a surprise party where they dined with friends.

A few days later on May 31, Choi and Son popped up in Tokyo. They had a day of fun at an amusement park. The next day, F. T. Island staged a concert in Japan’s busy capital.

In many of the photos, Choi sweetly wraps his arm around Son’s shoulders and waist. They look delighted, thrilled, and, most importantly, happy. Choi and Son have been a fan of each other even before they met, Dispatch reported.

On June 7, 2017, F. T. Island dropped Over 10 Years, paying tribute to the band’s 10-year legacy. The black-and-white photo above is from their album cover.

Son Yeon Jae was a child prodigy who started getting trained to become a rhythmic gymnast at age 5.

She placed fifth at the 2012 Olympics and won gold at the 2014 Asian Games in Incheon. She became Korea’s new sporting sweetheart after figure skater Yuna Kim.

Son retired in March. Watch her perform in the Rio 2016 Olympics below.

Congratulations, Choi Jong Hoon and Son Jeon Jae!
