According to multiple entertainment personnel, Lee Hongki of FTISLAND and Ai Shinozaki have been dating for six months.
One personnel told Sports Today on the April 10th, “Lee Hongki and Japanese Top Gravia model Ai Shinozaki have been dating since the end of last October and Lee Hongki has been staying true to his character and not hiding his relationship with her. Ai is known for her love of Korea and K-pop stars. She naturally developed an interest in Lee Hongki and as far as I know, a Japanese entertainment personnel introduced the two of them.”
In many online communities there are many witnesses and evidences of the two dating during FTISLANDS’s Japanese tour as well as the two going to supermarkets together while the model was visiting Korea.
FNC Entertainment however told Daily Sports, “After checking with Lee Hongki it has been confirmed that Lee Hongki and Ai Shinozaki are not dating but just close friends”
