Rapper Beenzino (Lim Sung-been) shared photos of the ‘flower shoe (꽃신)’ that he gifted to his girlfriend, Stefanie Michova.
On February 22nd, Beenzino posted multiple photos of the ‘flower shoe’ that he made himself on Instagram. In Korea, wearing a pair of ‘flower shoe’ means that a girl has successfully waited for her boyfriend to finish his military duty.
Beenzino wrote: “I finally gave Stefanie ‘꽃신’. I originally wanted to give her on the day I was discharged, but I had not finished the decoration. And now we are always together, I didn’t have time to finish decorating them. But I was able to sneak out somehow and finish them!”
On February 17th, Beenzino completed his military duty at the Gangwon-do Chungsung Unit after a year and 9 months of serving. On that day, his girlfriend Stefanie Michova went out to welcome him back and shared the moment on Instagram.
Beenzino and his German model Michova has been dating since they went public in May, 2015.
Beenzino went to Seoul University where he studied sculpture. He debuted in 2010 through the group Jazzyfact, and has been releasing many albums both as a group and a solo artist.
On Sunday, Beenzino’s girlfriend waited for the rapper to walk through the military base’s gate to greet him.
Rapper Beenzino (Lim Sung-bin) was discharged from the military on Sunday morning and had an emotional reunion with his German model girlfriend Stephanie Michova and his family. The couple has been together for five years and for two of those years they spent in mostly apart due to Lim’s mandatory military service.
Lim shared their reunion on social media where he shared a photo. This has become a common practice for the couple that went public with the relationship in 2015. Since then, they have demonstrated their unwavering affection for each other by releasing photos of the two of them together. Further, although they are a famous couple, they enjoy simple ordinary dates and occasionally wear couple’s clothing.
Back in 2016, the rapper talked about how the two have managed to maintain their relationship despite living in different countries. Lim explained that “cell phones are important to us” and said that they are in constant communication. “We basically talk about what we did in a day, about annoying things, about pleasant things,” he said. “and we talk about it before going to bed.”
