Who would have thought that being labelmates does not guarantee immediate closeness among K-pop idols? Netizens and fans were recently surprised to find out that Red Velvet's Wendy and EXO's Kai are not that class despite being under SM Entertainment for a while now.
Prior to the proper beginning of "Young Street," both Red Velvet's WENDY and EXO's Kai bowed to one another as soon as the "Peaches" singer walked into the radio booth. Adorably, the two bowed to one another multiple times, and hilariously, they even got down on their knees.
It was later revealed that it was their first time properly speaking to one another despite being under SM Entertainment for more than 8 years and being the same age.
EXO's Kai and Red Velvet's Wendy shared, "We've only said hi to each other when walking by, or say things like, 'Good job today'."
EXO's Kai added that he believed it was their first time being in the same room for more than 10 seconds. The EXO member further explained that although the two are like family, he feels like Wendy is his most distant cousin.
Red Velvet's Wendy added that she felt the same way and that they have spoken to one another more on SBS POWER FM's "Young Street" compared to the last eight years under SM Entertainment.
Although Red Velvet's Wendy and EXO's Kai were obviously initially nervous about conversing with one another, the two immediately overcame the anxious tension as the two seem to have similar fun energies.
