But the fact of the matter is that SM did confirm that the two idols are dating, and SM isn't really the kind of company to joke about such things--yes, not even on April Fool's Day.
After the dating news blew up in the media, netizens have uploaded various "proofs" to support SM's statement, particularly the proof that Kai and Krsytal were seen at a hotel together. It's not clear why netizens waited until after the dating news became public to release these proofs but it's still interesting to look at them all the same.
One chat room titled "Jong-in" goes:
"....my friend works at the Kang Neung Hotel and apparently Jong-in and Krystal showed up there"
"I thought all the yeoshi (foxes) knew already so I just wrote is Jong-in filming a web drama or something?"
"Once I wrote it there were so many freakin comments"
"All the yeoshi attacked me"
"I said it could be just rumors and had deleted my post because there were too many comments"
The anonymous netizen continues:
"I'm being cursed out to all hell hahahahahaha"
"Ah, I'm so scared......"
"How can I tell them that he's with Krystal at the hotel"
"I just wanted to ask if there were any witnesses but it was a big mistake..."
"I was terrorized lololol"
Further, additional pictures of Kai and Krystal at the hotel were uploaded which you can take a look below.
And then there are the people who claim that they actually interacted with Kai and Krystal while the two were checked in at the hotel.
The chats read (just the white bubbles as the yellow bubbles don't relay much info about Kai and Krystal):
"Krystal called and asked to explain the room serivce"
"I was wondering who this chick with the accent was"
"I was just wondering to myself and the person who went up to give her a nail clipper said the woman was Krystal"
"That she came out to receive it with her hair just washed and dressed in a night gown"
"They were there two nights"
"They used the suite room"
"Kai was the one who checked in and checked out while Krystal was sitting in the car"
The top comments on these posts go, "Why don't you just leave them alone. The hype will gradually wear off. In any case, f(x) is slowly..." "There's just more stuff on these guys it's not f**king Hollywood or anything they're really something else," "Just how many times did they go around that the whole world knows about them lolololol," "A grown man and a woman can go to the hotel together if they want what's the big deal?" "So what are you gonna do if it really is Kai and Krsytal," and, "Hue nice of them to have sex at a hotel I'm jealous."
