Every SHINee and EXO fan knows that Taemin and Kai are close friends, and have been so ever since their early trainee days. However, it seems their skinship has caused a few to question the true nature of their relationship, even going so far as to ask if they are dating!
On August 19th, Taemin appeared on the SBS radio show, “Old School,” in which DJ Kim Chang Ryul asked him questions about his friendship with Kai. Taemin explained that they are very comfortable with each other, and Chang Ryul asked if they ever hang out alone. Taemin responded, “Yes, but I’m afraid it might cause misunderstandings. Even managers keep asking me if I’m dating him.”
Chang Ryul blamed Taemin’s pretty face, and Taemin concurred, stating that he should be more careful. The DJ disagreed, saying there is nothing wrong with men hanging out alone or holding hands with each other, as girls can do the same without incident. Taemin further explained, “It’s not like I hold hands with Kai or anything but we do put our arms around each other. We have this friend who is quite aggressive when it comes to skinship. So it affected us too. I didn’t like it at first but now we naturally have skinship.”
What do you think of the TaeKai bromance? What is your opinion on skinship between male idols? I for one think these two are completely adorable, and I greatly enjoy watching them interact. Share your own thoughts with us below, and stay tuned for all the latest updates!
