However, it was reported that they only started dating this Spring. Dispatch also reports that despite their busy schedules, the idols date during their free time. The news outlet caught them on a date on February 16, after EXO had returned from the Los Angeles stop of their world tour.

Kai is the second EXO member to publicly acknowledge that he’s dating. Previously, his bandmate Baekhyun was also caught by Dispatch on a date with Girls’ Generation member, Taeyeon.
