Momo And Heechul’s Supporters Slam Critics, Say Age Is Just A Number

Fans are showing support for 2020’s first idol couple.

On January 1, Super Junior‘s Heechul and TWICE‘s Momo officially became the first confirmed idol couple of 2020. So far, many fans are supporting Heechul and Momo, but the couple isn’t without critics.


Momo, born on November 9, 1996, is 23 years old. Heechul, born on July 10, 1983, is 36. There’s a 13 year age gap between them, but they aren’t the first K-Pop couple to prove that age is just a number.


Even so, some people believe that the age gap between Momo and Heechul is just too wide. They feel uncomfortable about Momo dating an older idol. As this fan pointed out, however, Momo debuted at nearly 20 years old, meaning that she was a legal adult when she met Heechul.


Fans have also pointed out hypocrisy, and given examples of celebrity couples who overcame large age gaps.


Supporters say that as long as Heechul and Momo are happy, that’s all that matters.


In fact, Heechul and Momo’s age gap has given some fans hope. Maybe a fairy tale ending with their bias isn’t totally off the table…?


Then again, maybe not!


Age aside, here’s why Heechul and Momo are perfect for each other!
