Given that K.A.R.D are perhaps the only active co-ed K-pop group at the moment, it's no surprise that the topic about dating carries a bit of extra weight. So how do the quartet deal with issues in regards to being in a co-ed group and the possibility of dating each other?
In a new interview with Xsports News, B.M says that being a co-ed group has resulted in more attention due to the lack of mixed-gender groups these days. For J.seph, he says that he was initially "surprised" when he was told he was going to be in a co-ed group. While he initially "couldn't picture it", he's come around to the idea after meeting and practicing with the female group members.
As for the slightly sticky issue about dating each other, Jiwoo poured water on that by saying that nothing will ever happen since they all see each other every day, whether it is at meals or at practice:
"We practice together, eat together, and we're not family. Dating each other doesn't even make sense. I don't think it'll ever happen. I can promise that. We see each other every day, so we don't get any feelings. We don't even need to write an oath that says that we won't date each other."
Dating may be out of the picture, but we're just glad to hear that every group member gets along well!
