Mew and Gulf are close, but they haven’t confirmed a relationship
Mew and Gulf fanned relationship rumors when they started behaving like a couple during promotional fan meets.

During promotional events, Gulf and Mew responded to fan suggestions that they engage in couple-like activities. They were requested to hug and touch each other and to divulge the status of their relationship. Gulf and Mew didn’t respond to all requests, but when they did, they certainly looked like a couple.

Mew tried to pin the incident on Gulf while Gulf appeared to have no clue about what Mew was talking about. The pair proceeded to throw playful insults at each other and finally seemed to put the feud behind them.
