EXO's Kai is dating Jennie from BLACKPINK, have been a couple for a while, according to a Korean tabloid.
Photos of the pair surfaced in Dispatch, suggesting the two have been a couple since October 2018. The pictures showed the pair sporting matching outfits and spending time in the same cities at the same time. Jennie's agency did not weigh in on the relationship speculation, but Kai's label, SM Entertainment, did.
"Kai and Jennie have become fond of each other," a statement from SM Entertainment said.
Fans were not thrilled by the news. Many unfollowed Kai, Jennie or both on Instagram, refusing to support their relationship.
"sorry but, is Kai really dating Jennie? Jongin is one of my top priority in #EXO sekai is my babies. and tbh, i like bp esp. before but the very least member i like is jennie...so, yeah i just don't feel her. i dunno i can't accept it yet if this is true," one fan tweeted.
Another said, "an exo fan account i follow on instagram is genuinely mad that kai and jennie are dating. the only reason they're mad is because they hate bp they even went to the lengths of blocking kai. when will people get rid of the mentality that their biases can date whoever they want."
