Dating Rumors, The Kpop Idol's Struggle

As the internet is fast spreading, where information is easily accessed and electronic gadgets are more utile, K-pop idol stars are no escape from their fans, who wanted to know their personal lives. Photos or words posted on any SNS (Social Networking System) are now the basis of an idols’ status especially a star’s rumored lover.

Netizens are sometimes the reason why rumors spread especially when there are controversial posts on any of a star’s social network personal account. Photos where they are together, a belonging of someone else that is worn or brought, couple accessories and others are some of the things these eagle eyes watch out for.

Just recently, f(x)’s Sulli and Dynamic Duo’s Choiza, were seen together and possibly dating. Photos and videos are seen that were uploaded on different SNS and forum and media sites that made a hard evidence for the two to be in a relationship. Their agency already denied the rumors but netizens are surely waiting for some progress.


Actor Kim Woo Bin and model Yoo Ji Ahn started out as a rumor couple when a Kim Woo Bin fan saw Yoo Ji Ahn wear an exact same t-shirt in an Instagram post by the model. Gossips then spread that the two are in a relationship which was confirmed by the idols themselves.


Unintentional posts become conclusive proof sometimes. There are cases where the idols came up to admit their relationship because of an SNS post or update.

Se7en and Park Han Byul made their confession after a post were seen where the two are together and has a caption of "6 years of dating".



Actor Kim Moo Yeol and Yoon Seung Ah also revealed their relationship in a similar way when Kim Moo Yeol wrote a message to Yoon Seung Ah via Twitter saying, "I think thinking about you, I keep wanting to hear your voice, I want to see your face, and I want to call you but I can't because I'm afraid you'll be sleeping. I'll leave this message to express how I feel."


Rookie actress Byun Su Mi uploaded a photo of their swimming pool date with Badminton national athlete Lee Yong Dae onto her Facebook and openly admitted their relationship.


In worst cases, they sometimes end up in misunderstandings. Some posts create useless rumors by just looking at a shallow angle.

EXO’s Tao was seen updating his Weibo profile photo into a photo of a cat. Netizens then spread the news concluding it was Miss A’s Jia’s cat on the picture, thus, spreading rumors of the two having a relationship. Their agency then stated that it was indeed Jia's pet cat but the two are only friends, closing the speculations.


Also, a simple ‘food porn’ sparked a hidden relationship. F(x)’s Victoria posted a photo on her Weibo account of the meal she personally made. It is then seen a reflection on the spoon, where a man is possibly standing near and was identified to TVXQ’s Changmin. Their agency then cleared things, saying, “The person reflected in the spoon is in fact Changmin, but it wasn't just Changmin that was present at the scene.”
