SYTYCD 2′s Lacey Schwimmer and Hok Konishi are dating

Lacey Schwimmer and Hok Konishi, two contestants from So You Think You Can Dance 3, are dating.

Lacey confirmed their relationship to Access Hollywood, although reluctantly. “What? Wait. Wait. Where did you get that information from?” she said. “Alright you caught us.”

Fellow dancer Lauren Gottlieb gave them up, telling Access’ Laura Saltman, “there is Hok and Lacey, I think they are official and I think they have been official,” while Sabra Johnson and Neil Haskell also confirmed the relationship.

Lacey says that going back to last season, Hok “was actually my brother’s friend before he was ever my friend.” And Hok says the relationship between the two dancers, who were never paired, developed slowly. “It wasn’t like we were partners and we spent time together,” he said.
