Just short of a month after they confirmed their relationship, EXO’s Kai and Blackpink’s Jennie have called it quits.
EXO’s agency, SM Entertainment, released a statement to confirm that the couple is no more. They said, “It is true that kai and Jennie have recently broken up.”
The agency was also the one who confirmed the relationship when Korean media outlet Dispatch released photos of Kai and Jennie on a date in Seoul on January 1, 2019. The pair was said to have spent time together when they were in Paris for fashion week.
According to news reports, they decided to part ways to focus on their respective career. They also made this choice for their groups and fans.
The reports also stated that the pair will be encouraging each other as senior and junior in the industry.
When the dating news of Kai and Jennie broke out, most fans were surprisingly supportive, quite unlike the reaction to Kai’s first dating news involving Krystal three years ago.
Jennie has recently been appointed as the face of makeup brand HERA and released her solo single, “Solo”, late last year. Meanwhile, EXO released the repackaged version of their latest album, Love Shot, around the same time. The group is expected to start their fifth tour soon, having just returned from Chile for SM Town Live World Tour VI.
We guess Jennie is Solo again now.
