Kai and f(x)’s Krystal started dating in 2016, which was confirmed by SM Entertainment’s official statement that said, “the two were close friends and began having feelings for each other this year.”

The pair met some 10 years ago as trainees and fans have long wanted “Kaistal” to be a thing!

Unfortunately, their relationship came to an end on June 2017. The reason for their breakup is unknown, but their conflicting schedules seem to be the most suspected one.

Unfortunately, Kai tripped his feet during their performance and got an ankle injury.

This will cause Kai trouble when promoting their new creation “Lotto.” Like any other members, Kai was very excited about their new project, but because of what happened, Kai cannot join EXO and their future activities in Summer 2016.

Fans were, of course, very much worried, and so were other singers and close friends of the band.

Park So Hyun showed her support and admitted that she was devastated over the fact that Kai was injured and actually cried a lot when she saw Kai in a wheelchair.

She never thought that such a strong man can appear weak before her eyes. Kai is her dear friend.

Behind the tragic news about Kai, EXO and their newest album made its way to achieving triple millionaire crown. They made a record, selling over 1 million copies in just days.

Kai and Krystal Dating Despite Of Kai’s Injury

Kai got injured in their performance a few months ago, causing him to take a break from performing with his bandmates and take more time to rest and heal.

Although, rumor has it that he has been going out with Krystal, when he should be at home, taking his time to rest as much as he could so that the healing process will be quick, and he can re-join his bandmates in their activities.

There were actual photos as proof that the couple was going out on dates in Gapyeong. The photos were taken around August, during EXO’s performance somewhere.

When it was announced that Kai was going to take a break, SM also said that Kai will be resting to heal his ankle and will not be joining EXO’s performances.

“In order to focus on treatment of Kai’s ankle, Kai will unfortunately not be taking part in broadcast promotions. He did participate in the album recording and music video filming,” they said.

Meanwhile, some fans were defending the couple. They do not believe that the people in the photos were not Kai and Krystal, but other innocent strangers who just looks like them.

They also had theories that when the photos were taken, Krystal was in another country, minding her own business and taking photoshoots. So it can be proved that the photo is actually unreal.

As we all know, Kai has been silent for the past months because of his hiatus. He took a break from EXO and taking time to rest and wait for his ankle injury to heal. This caused lack of communication with fans, which is sad.

Kai then decided to post a message on EXO’s official fan site, dedicating his letter to all of his beloved EXO-Ls.

“Hello this is EXO’s Kai. I missed you all. You have no idea. I wanted to see you guys a bit more after the concert so I came right to From EXO. Have you heard the news? I started to dance again. I don’t think any other words would make me more happy today. I was so nervous and my legs were shaking before going onstage, but after seeing you guys in the audience, I felt just extremely happy. I felt like I had during my debut. After I came down from the stage, I remembered all those days of rehabilitation for this day. I am also thankful towards my members and EXO-L for being a great source of support. I really wanted to tell you guys that I am thankful. I can’t join all performances yet, but I’ll be onstage for other shows soon. I realized the importance of being on stage, and I will now try very hard to be your source of support. The long Summer has passed and Autumn has arrived with the winds. I wish that you all are colored with happiness like the mountains with autumn leaves. I really love you, EXO-L. P.S. Now I’ll come back here until you guys are tired of me.”

Kai seems to be really feeling lonely and missing his beloved fans. Indeed, his fans feel the same.

Even though the Kpop Industry has their strict policies, they never put limits when it comes to love. In this matter, FTISLAND’s Lee Hong Ki and actress Han Bo Reum are definitely the center of these relationships.

It was announced on November 9 2016 that the star couple Lee Hong Ki and Han Bo Reum confirmed their relationship status and proudly stated that they are dating.

They were both in the TV Drama “Modern Farmer” that was aired in 2014, and their friendship started by just talking about their favorite sport which is bowling, then lead to romance.

Like Min from Miss A and G.Soul, they started as friends and announced in their JYP Entertainment that they are now lovers.

In October 2016, Shin Ha Kyun and Kim Go Eun confirmed that they were dating.

There were actually rumors that Kim Go Eun changed agencies and went to Shin Ha Kyun’s agency so that they could be together.

But wait, there’s more. The star couple that has been the hot topic these days are Kim Gook Jin and Kang Soo Ji.

By working with each other in a SBS Drama called “Burning Youth”, fans were cheering for the two of them, which led to them actually falling for each other and people started calling them the “Chihuahua Couple.”

These couples that were mentioned above are not the only couples who we want to look up to, there are and will be more. Love is just in the air these days, you can’t just stop and you can’t just resist it.

Just like EXO’s Kai and f(x)’s Crystal, 2AM’s Jinwoon and Wonder Girls’ Yeeun, SE7EN and actress Lee Da Hae, all of them publicly and proudly announced their love for each other.

On the other hand, Block B’s Zico and AOA’s Seolhyun’s relationship was revealed by a scandal. Other than that, Kpop fanatics must be really happy about what’s going on with these star couples and their dreamy lovelife.
