After rumor and numerous reports, F.T. Island's Hongki and actress Han Bo Reum officially confirmed they were dating on November 9 (KST). However, it seems like Hongki publicly announced that he was taken even before the news broke out!
On the November 8 airing of 'Lee Hongki's Kiss the Radio', guest Kim Ho Young asked Hongki if he was currently dating. In response, Hongki said, "I'm not going to be lonely this winter." He then added, "Because of 'Hong Ki Ra' (acronym for Hongki's Kiss the Radio)."
Kisum, also a guest during the show, said in surprise, "There seems to be a warm vibe here. It sounds like [your relationship] is currently in process." Hongki, once again honestly responded, "I don't want to lie. I'm not lonely", implying that he has a girlfriend.
Again, congrats to the new celebrity couple!
