On January 1, EXO’s agency SM Entertainment confirmed the pair are dating and gave the brief statement,
“Kai and Jennie have become fond of each other.”
Earlier in the day, Dispatch reported that the two idols are currently in a relationship and included photos taken of the pair as they enjoyed a late-night date in November.
Ahead of SM Entertainment’s statement, YG Entertainment had also been contacted for comment as BLACKPINK’s agency and they stated, “We did not know of the dating rumors involving Jennie. We are currently looking into the matter.”
Congratulations to the happy couple!
