Dating is a sensitive subject within the K-Pop scene, as it can either break or make an idol’s career.
AOA member SeolHyun recently talked about how she was in a relationship during her rookie days.
According to the K-Pop idol:
“I dated once in my life back when I was in high school. I was an idol trainee during that time, so my boyfriend and I were only able to see each other for two days in the first one hundred days of our relationship.”
But the irony is that despite being a veteran idol, she still seems to have difficulty in maintaining a relationship due to her hectic schedule involving promotions, TV appearances, and advertisements.
Her past relationship with rapper Zico is an example. Both are veteran idols and even went public with their relationship thanks to Dispatch. But it seems that the attention from the media and the reactions from netizens were too much for them to fend off while maintaining a relationship.
Hopefully, SeolHyun will have more time in the future to find her significant other!
