With Yuna Kim officially confirming her relationship with boyfriend Won Joong Kim, more information regarding the couple have surfaced.

“I had no idea that the two were dating. But beside the fact that he’s dating Yuna Kim, Won Joong Kim is a very charming guy. He has the looks and also has a sensitive personality. He takes care of others very well and has a big heart," said actor Yoo Gun, who is friends with Yuna Kim's boyfriend.

"When he went on the variety show with me in the past, a lot of people were interested in him because of his personality. He is someone that people want to be friends with.”

According to Soompi, Yuna Kim and 29-year-old boyfriend Won Joong Kim have been dating for three years now. The pair met in 2012 in the Olympic village, and some speculate that news outlets withheld the story until after the Sochi Olympics for the sake of Yuna Kim's medal chances.

And while Yuna Kim is a Korean megastar, her boyfriend is popular in his own right as well.

According to translations of a Dispatch article, Won Joong Kim is focused, humble, and mannered, and is the captain of the Korean ice hockey team. Reportedly, he is looked up to as one of the best players in Asian ice hockey history.

Unlike Yuna Kim, who recently retired after the 2014 Sochi Olympics, her boyfriend is still aiming for Olympic ice in 2018. The Korean ice hockey team has never qualified before, and this might be their first.

Currently, Won Joong Kim is serving in the military, so Yuna Kim only sees him when he gets a vacation.

Good luck to the handsome couple!
