This Post Is For Anyone Who Is Absolutely In Their Feelings Over Kitty And Yuri From Netflix’s “XO, Kitty”

🚨There are obviously BIG spoilers ahead for XO, Kitty!🚨

XO, Kitty is the newest Netflix show that I’m really enjoying. I always love a good Jenny Han romance, and man, did this show deliver in multiple ways — so much so that it has already wracked up 72 million hours viewed in its first week.

The show is just a feel-good high school TV series with a great up-and-coming cast, one of the best soundtracks ever, and so many ship-worthy romances.


While XO, Kitty is presented as a show about Kitty and Dae’s romance, so much more happens. Kitty legit has several amazing love interests, and honestly, good for her.


First, we’ve got Kitty and Dae, who are so sweet and cute, and just very “first love” coded.


Then, there’s Kitty and Min Ho (Sang Heon Lee), and I’m personally a sucker for a character who is presented as the “bad guy” going through a redemption arc and finding love.


I mean, I would die for Nathan Scott from One Tree Hill, so…

But one of the biggest surprises for me came in Episode 6, when Kitty starts to realize she has feelings for Yuri (Gia Kim). What ensues the rest of the season is Kitty coming to terms with the fact that she might be bisexual, pansexual, or fluid because she can’t deny what she feels for Yuri.

Like, I love that XO, Kitty went this direction with Kitty. It was something I always thought would be fun to explore with her character, but I didn’t know if it would really happen.

The chemistry between Anna and Gia is also *chef’s kiss* perfect, like during this dream moment Kitty has when she first realizes she might like Yuri.


And then, don’t even get me started on this complex moment when Kitty reconnects Yuri and her girlfriend Juliana (Regan Aliyah) but realizes she is jealous. The yearning. The tension. Obsessed.


Speaking about playing Yuri, Gia told Teen Vogue how “uncommon” it is to see LGBTQ+ characters and storylines taking center stage in shows.

“What I want younger audiences and viewers to take away the most is the courage to speak their truth and shine their own light without worrying about what other people think,” Gia said. “Everyone, no matter how old you are, can relate to XO, Kitty because it is about the universal experience of wanting to feel connected, wanting to be heard and seen, wanting to be me, and wanting to love and be loved.”

Meanwhile, Anna discussed how important Kitty’s coming out moment was between Kitty and her dad, saying, “It makes me really happy to be able to portray that type of storyline.”


She continued, saying, “It just shows you how much love there is in that family and how amazing that is for Kitty. That’s not the experience that a lot of people have in real life, and she’s very lucky to have had that.”

And, in case you’re wondering, author and creator Jenny Han confirmed in a comment on TikTok that “Kitty being bi is canon and was always where the story was going.”
