A rare decay KL→μ+μ−KL→μ+μ− has been measured precisely, while a similar rare decay KS→μ+μ−KS→μ+μ− has not been seen yet, which will be measured by an upgrade of the LHCb experiment. Although both processes are almost CP conserving, I will point out that an interference contribution between KLKL and KSKS in a neutral kaon beam emerges from a genuine direct CP violation. It will be shown that the interference contribution can be a comparable size to the standard-model prediction of BR(KS→μ+μ−)(KS→μ+μ−). I will also introduce several new physics effects in K→μ+μ−K→μ+μ−, and a connection with ϵ′/ϵϵ′/ϵ, which is a direct CP violation in K→ππK→ππ.
