Singer Lim Chang-jung, 44, is dating a yoga instructor 18 years his junior.

Lim's agency, NH Media, said Thursday the two have been dating for more than a year.

"They started dating last May," the agency said. "Lim said she helped him to overcome the difficulties he has faced during the past couple years."

In 2013, Lim and pro-golfer Kim Hyun-joo divorced, with the singer getting custody of two of their three children and Kim the third.

Lim's girlfriend featured in the music video of his latest song, "The Love I Committed."

Released on Sept 6, "The Love I Committed" has swept domestic music charts for weeks. It was top of the MelOn real-time music chart as of Friday morning.
