January 1 started with a bang in c-ent and k-ent with Zhao Liying’s baby news and the big reveal that EXO’s Kai and BLACKPINK’s Jennie are dating. Yet last night’s star-studded new year countdowns also caused quite a buzz.
Among them was one fleeting moment that took 4 years in the making. Kris Wu and Huang Zitao were former members of the K-pop group EXO. After a public debacle wherein Huang expressed feeling betrayed when his band mate left in 2014, it was understood that both may have had a falling out. Huang Zitao ended up leaving the band in 2015 yet the two were hardly seen together despite being active in the same industry.
Four years later, both gave separate performances as guests for Dragon TV’s New Year’s Eve Concert, and it paved the way for the rare moment when they stood side by side waiting for the new year countdown.
Then this happened when the clock struck 12. A fancam caught them sharing a friendly hug. The same morning, there were reports that Huang Zitao is following both Luhan and Kris Wu on weibo, they are the only two people that he follows. Kris Wu and Huang Zitao also began following each other on instagram. It looks like the rumors that they were not on good terms is a thing of the past. Happy New Year!
