Viewers of Mnet’s dance competition show Street Woman Fighter (SWF) were shocked to find out that Aiki, leader of the HOOK crew, has been married for over nine years and also has a nine-year-old daughter!
Aiki’s youthful appearance and stylish fashion sense had many people believe she was in her twenties, but she’s actually over 30 years old! According to Aiki in a recent appearance on The Manager, she and her husband met while she was a senior in college.
Four years her senior, her husband didn’t make a great impression when they first met through a blind date. Because he was an engineering student working as a researcher, Aiki wasn’t sure they’d have anything in common.
But after meeting up again and realizing he 1) had a great sense of style and 2) had his own hobbies and interests like skateboarding, Aiki reconsidered her opinion of him!
After revealing that she started liking her husband after that second date, Aiki was asked what he liked about her. She happily replied, “He said he liked everything about me.”
Even though they’ve been married for almost a decade now, he continues to act as kindly as if they had just moved in together. He often leaves Aiki notes in the morning when he has to go out and even prepares a morning coffee and herbal medicine for her.
His note included an old nickname of his: “Cookie!” Aiki explained that back when they were younger, their nicknames for each other were Cookie and Cream, showing that they’re definitely a perfect match.
It’s sweet to see what her relationship with her husband is like, but it was definitely surprising for many to find out that Aiki has been married for years! The comment section on a YouTube clip of the episode is full of fans expressing their shock and admiration.
