K-POP Rumors | allkpop Forums
We know the companies with the dating ban, but do we know the ones who ENCOURAGE dating? Minhyun said pledis The thing is, their artists are almost never in scandals. Take that Sm come take lessons bruh <.<. It's always been known that SM perfers their artists to date within the company. Even during the banned years,they just can't get caught. not easy to come by unless they debut in one of the Top 3 (SM, JYP and YG). Not only does this take a heck of a lot of passion, dedication and for fans that entertainment companies literally forbid their artists from dating.
I'm not sure why I care but they are cute! Most surprising is the fact that there is a three year age difference between Taeyeon and Baekhyun. Taeyeon was born inwhile Baekhyun was born in Baekhyun debuted in with the tremendously successful group EXO.
The K-Pop industry Dating Ban. – P.S. I Love You
Both groups are currently at the height of their careers, having established global fame as purveyors of the Hallyu Wave. Audiences in Korea have become desensitized to older woman-younger man relationships through the recent surge in K-Drama noona romances. While SM Entertainment may be criticized by fans for other practices, their confirmation of idol relationships could help to revolutionize the current state of Korean entertainment.
K-Pop idols, in particular, are often subjected to standardized practices in which denying relationships is considered best practice.
Fans of groups often are aware of rumored relationships with Korean paparazzi media such as Dispatch hot on the tails of idols, ready to break the latest dating news. If other agencies adopted the practice that SM Entertainment appears to have embraced for Girls' Generation, similar results may occur.
YG Entertainment has been slow to confirm relationships regarding idols including the on and off again rumors surrounding Big Bang's G-Dragon with Japanese model Kiko Mizuhara. Since the start of the Girls' Generation dating announcements in latethe group has made a successful comeback and has maintained relatively positive news through their respective relationships. Perhaps, Korean entertainment is ready to replicate Western entertainment where audiences care more about whether or not Justin Bieber is still dating Selena Gomez, than the fact that the couple was ever dating in the first place.5 examples of how YG's style affects its artists
Like, the break up of the BaekYeon and the dating confirmation of the latter were too accurate. I know it could be a coincidence, but the break up happened in September and the dating confirmation was in March, that's nearly half a year difference, it's long enough for people to forget about the first couple and not link the two happenings together, but still not too long for people to forget the feeling of having their bias dating, so they would be somehow more acceptable to the whole KaiStal thing -than BaekYeon- since all they're thinking is "that's nothing new, remember BaekHyun and TaeYeon last year?
I don't know, it just seems fishy.
Sorry for being biased, lmao Let's discuss KaiStal, now. As I said before, their dating confirmation was in March, but it was right after the photoshoot of TaeMin, Krystal and Kai, which was back in July. It was like SM was preparing for BaekYeon to break up since the hustle and bustle surrounding this topic was slowly wearing off, so they were preparing for them to break up and a new couple to rise.
Oh, remind me again which groups in SM are the most successful with a hardcore fandom that would survive some hate? SuJu are now sonsengnims and don't really need any more fame.
Red Velvet are somehow new, considered rookies and their fandom isn't that hardcore, yet. SHINee has a hardcore fandom, haven't tried dating before, and they are nearly considered sunbaes though not sonsengnims, yet.
And lastly, f x are the same as SHINee. Kai of EXO and Krystal of f x are confirmed to be dating!
