The Seoul-based and bi-ethnical South-Korean-Chinese boyband EXO, has been through some shaky times with three of its members leaving the band since its founding.
Be it as it may, the band still has a huge fan base which reacts to every little scoop about their beloved idols.
What rumors or confirmed stories surrounding the EXO members have been floating around? Let’s have a look at some of them.
Chen’s Pictures with Alleged Girlfriend Have Been Leaked?
Chen has no gossip of his personal life, till a few days ago! Pics with his girlfriend (or ex-gf, no proof for this) were leaked from somewhere, and fans cannot keep themselves from gossiping.
Some rumors also went around that he used to date Yoon Bomi of Apink, but the whether it is true or not of it remains a mystery.
Their relationship had been speculated on after seeing the couple post pictures donning pair headphones, sunglasses and bracelets.
In addition, there were frequent sightings of the couple being spotted together, most likely on dates.
Car Date was Snapped
This became a hot topic after photos of the couple in a car were released by “Dispatch”, a Korean entertainment news website.
The dissatisfaction among some fans became even more apparent as Taeyeon’s alleged attendance at an EXO concert led the fans to post abusive comments in her Instagram.
Although there was no proof that Taeyeon did attend the concert, some comments of disagreement flooded her account asking her why she showed up and condemning her for not staying away from the concert.
It does appear that Baekhyun’s relationship with Taeyeon strikes some nerves with some of Baekhyun’s rabid fans.
However, the couple recently broke up around the middle of 2015. Perhaps Baekhyun’s fans are more relieved now?
Although having suspended his activities with the group since 2015, Tao was rumored to have a girlfriend when a viral video showed him kissing an unknown woman by Chinese media mid-October.
Due to the intensity of the rumors, SM Entertainment confirmed that it was indeed Tao in the video, but clarified that the woman in the video was simply a friend.
SM Entertainment also warned of legal action against the spread of false rumors or misinformation regarding their talents.
Kai dating with Krystal = Kaistal?
Apparently, there were some more juicy scandalous photos which “Dispatch” possessed, but were asked to be kept secret.
And for good reason, as the shocking pictures showed Kai and Krystal allegedly kissing in a swimming pool at Hong C hotel in Gangneung.
The article which showed the concerned photos was originally from “Pann”, a Korean website. The news did not sit well with everyone as some netizens reacted negatively and proceeded to bash the stars.
Xiumin currently does not have a girlfriend because there have been no rumors about him so far being seen together with girls who appear to have a close relationship with him.
However, some fans were quick to point out that this only happened because she was out of balance and he held her arm to keep her stable.
Besides that, there are been no other substantial rumors about him dating anyone.
Although Sehun has no girlfriend, there were some delusional fans (or possible haters) who claimed to be his girlfriend on Instagram.
Sehun did not take this lightly and wrote an open message asking who they were.
Sehun was also rumored to be dating because he once purchased a luxurious Mercedes Benz with tinted windows, possibly hinting that he had something to conceal.
But hey, it doesn’t always have to be a girlfriend. He could just want some privacy.
Even after leaving the group, there were rumors of Luhan getting married and having a kid.
Prior to that, he was also rumored to be dating Wei Qian Ya, his alleged friend from high school. However, these rumors were proven to be fake because it was an attempt to generate web traffic.
Someone came forward claiming that a friend of hers used to date Kris.
Photos of Kris were leaked which also contained a screenshot of a message to Kris calling him “husband”.
The pictures were said to have been hacked from Kris’ phone, but its credibility is to be doubted as some say it was fabricated and everything, even the girlfriend story, was taken from a Kris fanfic.
Suho has been rumored to be dating someone named Jenny Kim but this has not been confirmed.
Some fans also noted that although the name is the same as Jenny from YG Entertainment, it must be a different person of the same name.
Besides these rumors, there have been pictures of Suho with matching rings and seemingly appearing close to a girl during his trainee days.
Whether they are still going out is a mystery, however, as after Baekhyun was revealed to have a girlfriend which did not exactly sit well with his fans, he appeared worried for the well-being of his fellow member.
It would be difficult for him to keep up a relationship in those circumstances seeing as he is the leader of the group.
Not much is known if they have really been dating or if it was just a mere coincidence, but being spotted wearing pair shirts more than once might not be a coincindence.
If they were indeed dating, it would be difficult to say if they are still going out.
Lay admitted to having a girlfriend before his debut, but there is not much known about this person who is most likely not a celebrity.
Currently, he does not have a girlfriend as he is busy with his job as an idol.
