Ayumi and Gackt have been swept up in love rumors, and in the midst of the newfound attention, Gackt’s opinion on Dokdo has been dug up again.

On June 22, Japanese media outlets reported that Ayumi, or Iconiq in Japan, was dating the visual rock singer Gackt.

When the news hit Korea, many netizens became interested in Gackt himself. It has been revealed that he boasts close ties with Korea, as he was once wed to a Korean.

A previous statement he made on Twitter especially drew much interest. On March 30, 2011, Gackt retweeted a tweet reading ‘Dokdo is Korean territory!’ His actions caused him to receive many threats from rightist groups in Japan.

He didn’t let up, however, and continued to post texts that showed his favorable views toward Korea. His relationship with Ayumi, who is a Korean resident in Japan, again proved his views.

Ayumi once told enews in an exclusive interview in April, “I like someone. It’s a crush. I haven’t told him.”
