Super Junior's Sungmin recently came clean with dating a musical actress, and several Girls' Generation members (Taeyeon, Sooyoung, Yoon A, Tiffany, Hyoyeon, and Jessica) have either confirmed relationships or been involved in dating rumors.
While Taeyeon's relationship with EXO's Baekhyun caused some strife, SM Entertainment admitted the relationship right away, given that the two were caught by journalists kissing.) In comparison, dating rumors surrounding f(x)'s Luna and Sulli were vehemently denied.
EXO is too new that a scandal could, and did, rock it and its individual member's popularity.
Ticket sales for Baekhyun's musical, 'Singin' in the Rain,' went down immediately after the relationship was publicized.
You know what they say—a rule isn’t a rule unless you get caught breaking it.
If it’s a well-liked guy most likely fans are going to scream “you can’t date my oppa”/ “oppa you have betrayed me”/ “how dare you steal my oppa from me”Basically, keep it a secret.
For example Justin and Selena didn’t get that much attention, and when they broke up no one really asked why. Sometimes Korean entertainers don’t even have the option to think about dating because of their intense and hectic schedules, not to mention the very possessive fans and crazy, creepy sasaengs (obsessive fans). There is a famous picture of sasaengs lying down in a street in Singapore, not letting the K-pop singers’ tour bus leave the area.
As for their intimate feelings for each other, such were given time to form over the course of almost a decade.
There are six restrictions that one must follow while under YG.
One was dating; these girls are not allowed to date as long as they are signed under YG.
This would be the second time SM Entertainment would confirm a relationship between two of their K-pop idols.
The first time was when they revealed Baekhyun of EXO and Taeyeon of Girls’ Generation were dating back in 2014.
