In news that is now definitely not some elaborate April Fools prank put on by SM Entertainment, it has been confirmed that EXO’s Kai and f(x)’s Krystal are now dating.
The story originally broke last night. The two apparently try to meet up when their global-traveling schedules allow.
Kai was in Korea on February 16, having returned from Los Angeles. He was due to go back to the United States for EXO’s Chicago concert on February 19. In between, Kai met up with Krystal on February 17. They met at a lobster restaurant in Gangbuk, a favorite of the Jung Sisters (Krystal and Jessica Jung).
According to Dispatch, this is how Kai and Krystal date: trying to find time between their busy schedules that take them around the world. The two also met up on March 1 after Kai returned from Jakarta, Indonesia, and Krystal returned from Nagoya, Japan.
SM Entertainment briskly confirmed that the two are dating/getting to know each other.
“The two were close friends and began having feelings for each other this year.”
Idol-dating may not have the greatest success rate but that is understandable when an idol’s career is pretty much a combination of a full-time job and the equivalent of an unhealthily imbalanced commitment with one’s own label. Still, here’s wishing one insanely attractive person well on their journey with another insanely attractive person. May we all be so #blessed.
Hopefully, Kai-stal (KrysKai?) will not cause the internet to devolve into the shrieking mess that was left in the wake of EXO Baekhyun’s relationship with cougar/temptress/cookie-fetishist/spy messenger Taeyeon. I’m not sure if my brain could take another one of those.
