South Korean superstar pop idol IU, 22, and Jang Ki Ha & The Faces frontman Jang, 33, are the newest celebrity couple.

IU’s agency Loen Tree confirmed news of the pair dating Thursday and said the two musicians met and began their relationship two years ago.

“It’s been about two years that we’ve been together,” IU wrote on her fan site. “Our first meeting was on a radio show. I was in love at first sight.”

“He’s a boyfriend I have a lot to learn from, and one to whom I’m thankful,” she said.

Jang also posted on his fan cafe.

“IU is a precious and thankful person to me,” he wrote.
