New K-Pop couple on the block!
And no, this isn’t an April Fools’ Day prank.
Korean media outlet Dispatch broke the news that K-Pop supergroup EXO member Kai (real name Kim Jong-in) and f(x) member Krystal (real name Soo Jung) are dating. Housed under South Korean entertainment powerhouse SM Entertainment, both idols have known each other for about 10 years. They started training with the agency in 2007 and they are believed to have started dating just recently.
Along with the news, Dispatch released a set of pictures of the duo supposedly on a date. The labelmates were spotted meeting up on 17th February at a lobster restaurant in Gangbuk.
A source close to them commented on their relationship saying, “The two know that they are similar: looks, personality, taste in music, fashion taste, and hobbies. It was inevitable that they became lovers.”
SM Entertainment have since confirmed that Kai and Krystal are indeed dating. The agency released an official statement to say that the idols started their relationship “having become interested in each other recently after being friends”. Aww :)
How these two find time in their busy schedules to meet each other is beyond us! But one thing’s for sure, they sound like they’re quite MFEO (made for each other) and hence, we’re super excited for them.
Congratulations, Kai and Krystal <3
