After the news of TWICE member JiHyo and former Wanna One member Kang Daniel dating broke out, it seems that some South Korean ONCEs are worried that other members are going to start dating.
But the last time we checked, all the TWICE members are now seniors of JYP Entertainment and had their dating ban lifted.
So why is that there are so many fans in South Korea who continue to hold on to the old ways of fandoms and go absolutely nuts when they find out about their favorite idols dating? Where is the respect for one’s privacy and decision right? We get that they want the idols to focus on their careers, but there is no sense in treating idols as if they didn’t have any emotions.
Below is a post from an online community saying
“Thank heavens it wasn’t Sana .” referring to dating.
Below are comments left by netizens who took Sana’s side.
“I have no idea why people get angry over idols dating. All of you can spend ur time chasing after her for days but she doesn’t even know you guys exist…”
“F***ing retards LOL so do you think she’d date any of you guys? LOL”
“Aigo…look at the title…aren’t celebrities humans to? They should date and experience love and heartbreak while they are young..even if you know they are dating, can’t people just turn a blind eye.”
“If Sana were to look at stuff like that post I’m sure she’d feel f***ing pitiful for them.”
What is your take on the current situation?
