A popular media source in South Korea, known for revealing relationships of kpop idols, has once again unleashed a new couple. This time, it involves Girls’ Generation Kim Taeyeon and EXO’s Byun Baekhyun.
According to Dispatch, the two have been discretely dating for almost four months now. Taeyeon even picks up Baekhyun during the latter’s rehearsal for their group’s first world tour. Their dates consist of late night outings, including their recent one inside Taeyeon’s car.
A few hours after the news broke out, SM Entertainment, the couple’s record label confirmed that the two are indeed a couple. According to an SM representative, the two started as friends and soon developed feelings for each other.
However, some fans of the two were not as supportive of the recent development in their idols’ love lives. Some EXO fans reportedly returned their tickets to a musical that Baekhyun was slated to participate in. Taeyeon on the other hand apologized in her Instagram account for causing unnecessary pain to her fans. But was still criticized after posting a similar picture of them two.
This isn’t the first time that a Girls’ Generation member was in the spotlight after admitting that they’re in a relationship. Earlier this year, Yoona admitted to being in a relationship with actor Lee Seung Gi while Sooyoung has been seeing Jung Kyung Ho, also an actor.
