Like a close group of friends who start marrying off as soon as one falls, the members of SNSD are collecting boyfriends like they’re about to go out of style.
This time, it’s Taeyeon and label-mate Baekhyun of EXO. Apparently, Baekhyun mentioned that Taeyeon was his ideal type on some program and Taeyeon… found that charming. Yes, confessions will work with your favorite hot pop star crush as long as you also happen to be a famous hot pop star.
‘Dispatch’ says that the two have been dating for 4 months now in the utmost secrecy. It’s said the reporters from the media outlet first spotted them while EXO was practicing for their first concert. Taeyeon provided moral support for the exhausted Baekhyun, who had to spend nights practicing due to the group’s redoing of their choreography and recording with Kris‘s lawsuit.
Taeyeon headed towards Baekhyun’s dorm and picked him up at a discreet location and enjoyed a date in the car. ‘Dispatch’ says they also spotted the two on several dates including before the concert as well as after the concert on the 26th and on the 28th before Girls’ Generation’s leave for Japan. Baekhyun would also meet Taeyeon near her dorm as well.
An insider apparently revealed, “Baekhyun picked Taeyeon as his ideal type as he was debuting, and Taeyeon found it cute… The two showed their interest in each other towards the latter half of last year, and started to date officially this February.”
I mean, the whole thing as it’s being reported is actually kind of cute aside from the whole “we have to date in cars” thing.
SM Entertainment confirmed the report, finally shattering the final dreams and hopes of TaeNy shippers everywhere (Tiffany has been busy, presumably being Nichkhun’s designated driver).
A rep from the agency responded to media outlets, “Having started off as close sunbae-hoobae, the two recently developed feelings for each other and are in the beginning stages.”
Suddenly, SNSD’s English version of “The Boys” seems less like an awkward attempt to enter the international market and more like a prophecy.
“We’re born to win, better tell all your friends cause we get it in.”
