Philippine President Benigno Aquino came to power in 2010

I came to know that the bachelor president of the land was once linked to such glamorous and respected personalities as Liz Uy, Bunny Calica, Len Lopez, Barbie Palagos, Patrcia Ann Roque, Shahani Soledad, Bernadette Sembrano and Korina Sanchez. This I learned from GetRealPhilippines.com

His sister Pinky Aquino-Abellada had expressed her wish to help him find his life partner by voting on Bais City Mayor Karen Villanueva.

Likewise, his sister Kris, during the visit of Thailand’s Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, in her tweet found her tall, slim and attractive and a good match for her brother president.

Now Noynoy search for the right girl to share his love life with is far from over. Where his former flames vanished in a wink of an eye akin to a burning cogon grass, there arise anew a fresh flame in the person of Grade Lee.

Grace Lee, 29, is from Seoul, South Korea, who at 10 came to live in the Philippines because of her father’s business. At St. Paul’s College in Pasig City and Ateneo de Manila, she finished high school.and college, respectively. At present, she’s a TV and radio personality who works as co-anchor of Balitanghali, the official website of GMA Pinoy TV and GMA Life TV.

Asked about a rumor circulating that he and Grace Lee have been on a date, President Aquino during a press conference on the morning of Febrary 1, Wednesday, laconically replied:

"Well, we're seeing each other."

“We are dating. We are starting, so sana everyone will give us time and space to get to know each other more," Lee told ABS-CBN's Mario Dumaual, in reply to the same query.

The 2 met on June 2010 in Cebu during the inauguration of the Korea Electric Power Corporation power plant, which Grace emcees with Noynoy as guest. In his speech, the president complimented her beautiful.

What does Grace say of President “Noynoy” C. Aquino III?

"To be liked by a man who leads the country is very flattering," Lee said. "He's such a gentleman. When he acknowledged it, I think that was out of respect for me."

Regarding marriage proposal, Grace dismissed it as rumors.

But wherever this relationship may lead, Lee said she is ready for the effects this will have on her life, as well as her family.

On their main differences, the comely Korean TV personality quipped:

"The age gap and racial differences do not matter," she said. "Well, at least whatever we have now will serve as an inspiration to a lot of people out there."

By February 8, the president will turn 52 and Grace is fully aware of it and brewing something as a present. It’s a surprise, she told abs-cbnNEWS.
