The news of BLACKPINK‘s Jennie and EXO‘s Kai‘s relationship came as a shock to everyone on New Year’s day but it seems that some had been suspecting Jennie was in a relationship prior to the news.
On January 1, Dispatch revealed photos of Jennie and Kai allegedly enjoying a date at Sky Park as well as other photos that served as evidence for their secret relationship. The news was later confirmed by SM Entertainment.
And although the news was revealed on the first day of the new year, some have already been suspecting that Jennie was in a relationship after watching her appearance on Village Survival, the Eight. On last month’s episode, Jennie was asked the question, “Have you ever been introduced to a celebrity?” All she could do in response was laugh and say, “What’s this?”
Jennie couldn’t answer the question and said, “I’ll just stand here!”
When asked why she looked so flustered, she answered that her agency’s CEO, Yang Hyun Suk, monitors her programs and hinted that she could get in trouble for answering.
“(He’ll) text me! I’ll get text messages from our president. He monitors (my programs).”
The mischievous hosts couldn’t let it go and asked what exactly Yang Hyun Suk would say in his texts and Jennie replied, “You’d better not.”
While she could simply have said no, the way she tried to avoid the question made some fans to suspect that something may be going on and it turns out, they were right!
