2019 starts unexpectedly with first confirmed couple of the year, EXO’s Kai and BLACKPINK’s Jennie.

SM Entertainment confirmed the love relationship between Kai and Jennie on January 1st . The agency added that they have good feelings towards each other.

The news was released earlier today causing an uproar in social media, particularly from the respective supporters of the two artists.


The couple was seen driving together and walking around Sangam Park in November 2018.

This is the first time that the news about the two of them broke out after local news vendor Dispatch News shared the photos of both allegedly being together.

Both parties are currently busy with their respective groups.

Kai remains to be active in EXO activities. The group just released their 5th repackaged album, LOVE SHOT, on December 13, 2018. The album includes songs from their 5th studio album, Don’t Mess Up My Tempo, as well as three new songs, “Trauma”, “Wait” and the album’s title track, “LOVE SHOT”.

On the other hand, Jennie has been the charismatic main rapper of BLACKPINK since their debut. Late last year, she had her solo debut with “SOLO” on November 12, 2018. The song peaked at the number one spot on the Gaon Charts, the K-Pop Hot 100, and the Billboard charts.

As of today, Jennie has been the top trending topic worldwide with Jongin, Kai’s real name, on the seventh spot on Twitter. In Seoul, Jennie and Jongin are creating buzz at the seventh and eighth spot respectively.
