[Poll] Would You Want to Know if Your Idol is Dating?
Another idol dating scandal blows up, but this time - it involves your favorite idol. Your bias. Your one true love.
What is your immediate reaction? Are you genuinely happy to see that your idol is in love? Or do you curse the other person? Do you resolve to continue to be a fan and support your bias or do you swear him/her off forever and move on?
SNSD′s Yoona and Lee Seung Gi confirmed they were dating earlier this year
On the other hand, when see your favorite idol go on a talk show and say for the umpteenth time that he/she doesn’t have time to date, is lonely, has never dated, etc., what is your first thought then? Do you wish he/she would just date already? Or would you prefer he/she be single than date another star you dislike?
The reality is that idols are human. Which means, yes, they date, whether we want them to or not. And, in effect, more and more idols’ love lives are being aired out in public.
But we’re more curious about your reactions to the scandals.
Choiza and Sulli romance rumors sparked last year when they were seen enjoying beer together
It took Dynamic Duo’s Choiza and f(x)’s Sulli a few times getting caught by paparazzi to finally admit they were an item.
Girl’s Day member Minah’s immediate reaction when news broke about her dating soccer plager Son Heung Min was to deny it. But she eventually fessed up to the truth.
Engagement rumors sparked between SNSD′s Jessica and Tyler Kwon in September
Meanwhile, SM Entertainment continues to maintain that SNSD’s Jessica is not dating Tyler Kwon although the rumors about the girl group member dating the entrepreneur are not letting up.
On the flipside, Tiffany, Yoona, Sooyoung and Taeyeon have all admitted to being in relationships with other high profile stars.
2PM′s Nichkhun and SNSD′s Tiiffany went from longtime friends to a couple in April
Then there are idols like ZE:A’s Hyung Sik who said on a show that he hasn’t had a girlfriend since he debuted to groans of disbelief from the other guests.
SISTAR’s Soyou also said it’s been a while since she was in a relationship.
And there are also those who slip through the cracks.
We all know by now that just because idols say they aren’t dating, it doesn’t mean they’re holed up in their dorms twiddling their thumbs.
Girls′ Day′s Minah and soccer player Son Heung Min confirmed their relationship in July
We found out belatedly that 2PM’s Wooyoung had a girlfriend (whom he has since parted ways with) during the group’s Come Back When You Hear This Song promotions when he shared this little fact on a radio show recently.
We’re so engrossed in celebrity love lives that when stars aren’t waving off romance rumors, they’re addressing hypothetical questions about whether they would go public with a relationship or not.
For the record, Wheesung and Yoo Yeon Seok wouldn’t mind being seen in future relationships, while Fly to the Sky’s Hwanhee is absolutely against it, along with Simon D, who appears to have learned from firsthand experience.
Alas, as long as love exists, so will celebrity couples. But, we want to know, would you rather know if your idol is dating or remain in ignorant bliss? Vote now!
