SM Entertainment confirms EXO Baekhyun is dating Taeyeon

In a shocking turn of events, SM Entertainment has actually confirmed that EXO Baekhyun and Girls’ Generation’s Taeyeon are dating!

I guess in face of Dispatch’s compelling evidence, they had nothing other to do than to confirm the two’s relationship.

Of course, EXOtics, at least the ones in South Korea, are very upset!

Some have been leaving negative comments on both Baekhyun and Taeyeon’s Instagram accounts.

SM Entertainment released a statement saying,

“They both started off as close sunbae/hoobae, and the two recently developed feelings for each other and are in the beginning stages of their relationship.”

Well congrats to the two! It must be liberating for them to not have to hide their relationship too much now… though they’ll still have to hide themselves away from jealous, crazy fans.

We hope that Baekhyun’s relationship doesn’t have any negative effects on EXO’s status.

But it does make me curious how Baekhyun’s relationship with Taeyeon eluded many fans, unless they were loyal fans keeping their secret… in which case that’s so nice of them!
