      Philippine President Benigno Aquino with Grace Lee

      Philippine President Benigno Aquino has admitted he is dating a Korean expat TV host. Aquino (52) confirmed rumors that he is dating Grace Lee (30) when he visited Quezon City in the southwest of Luzon Island to launch a government agency on Wednesday. He did not answer any other questions, the local press reported.

      The rumor started on Twitter on Jan. 26, and local press afterwards reported the story. The bachelor president was reportedly attracted to Lee when he met her in Cebu in June, where he attended a dedication ceremony for a power plant built by KEPCO.

      "All the guests here are beautiful," but Grace Lee is the most beautiful, and he could settle wherever she is for love, he was reported as saying at the time.

      Lee moved to the Philippines with her family as a child. She is a TV celebrity who hosts a talk show for the GMA Network and a radio program. She confirmed the rumor by saying on her TV program that "what the president said is true," AP reported.
