Kyulkyung, a former I.O.I and PRISTIN member was rumored to be dating soloist and NINE PERCENT member Cai Xukun.
On June 24, 2019, rumors about the two idols relationship went viral on Tencent, with people becoming suspicious when the two changed their profile pictures on their respective Weibo accounts at similar times. Chinese netizens claim their profile pictures are too similar to be a coincidence.
According to Chinese fans, Cai Xukun’s profile photo had complimentary aesthetics with Kyulkyung’s, and if put side-to-side, they face each other.
Cai Xukun’s agency has since spoken about the claims, saying that rumors about the relationship are false.
There is no relationship. Cai Xukun is too busy working on his music for a relationship at this time.
Cai Xukun first met Kyulkyung on the Chinese idol survival program Idol Producer, in which the latter was a mentor and the former was a contestant. Cai Xukun won first place and debuted as the center of NINE PERCENT.
