Juan Karlos “JK” Labajo celebrates Valentine’s Day, “hard-launching” a familiar face for many. Known for his love for motorcycles, the “ERE” hitmaker appeared alongside Miss Universe Philippines-Cavite 2024 candidate and musician Dia Mate, dressed in balaclavas and captioned with a red heart during his February 14, 2024 post.

Mate responded to the post, greeting the 23-year-old a “Happy Valentine’s Day love ❤️,” shedding light on the status of their public relationship. The rumored couple took their rooftop date experience to their Instagram stories, as the “Fantasy” singer-songwriter shared a Lego Rose bouquet gifted by Labajo.

Though nothing was officially announced as of writing, netizens speculated about the possible relationship in April 2023, as JK debuted on Mate’s TikTok, performing the viral “Pretty Boy Flow” dance challenge. 

Since its upload, the pair would appear constantly on each other’s accounts, most recently during Labajo’s 23rd birthday celebration last February 5, 2024. She posted a greeting to the Filipino rock band's lead vocalist, which read: “To my light and my happiness, happy birthday love ❤️. May you receive everything you deserve in this lifetime. I love you!”

Juan Karlos responded, re-storying her post with the caption: “Love you bb!!! 🥰❤,” capturing the relationship’s seriousness.
