The two kaon factories, KOTO and NA62, are at the cutting edge of the intensity frontier, with an unprecedented numbers of long lived and charged Kaons, ~ 10^{13}, being measured and analyzed. These experiments have currently a unique opportunity to search for dark sectors. We demonstrate, both via studying the experimental property and by constructing new physics (NP) models, that the searches done at KOTO and NA62 are complementary, both probing uncharted territories. We also mention that the model may be compatible with the preliminary analysis of the KOTO-data that shows a hint for NP.
