Jeon So Mi and Pinky of IOI sat with JTBC's 'Abnormal Summit' on November 28 and talked about their dating prohibition.  

On this day, the past topic of AKB48 member Minegishi Minami crying and shaving her head in apology through a YouTube video after getting caught dating was brought up.

When asked about Korean idols dating, Jeon So Mi said, "In JYP, you can't date for three years.  It's been one year for me, but I'm a bit at a loss," showing her concerns about whether the 3-year rule includes her activities in IOI.  Sung Si Kyung said comfortingly, "It should include your [IOI] activities."

Pinky said, "I'm aware that it's three to four years for me."  Sung Si Kyung said, "Each of you, just do whatever you want," so the girls brightly laughed. Pretty sure there are clauses included in their contracts, though...

I think Pledis artists are really excellent in covering their love stories to the public (if they do involve), but I also think most of them prioritize their job and responsibility more than being in a relationship

It annoys me that the topic of Minegishi is brought up in this particular TV show... I can't help but think a lot of people's prejudices have been perpetuated by this. I really think this particular TV show is poison for society, as enjoyable as those foreigners in it are to watch....

Why do you think this show is poison? I love this show and have learned a lot from it. You just have to keep in mind that each person is just one voice from their country and don't always represent the variety of views that the particular country has.

As Pinky is under Pledis I don't really know how they deal with this dating stuff... I've never heard about the politics on it before.

Well, Seventeen are allowed to date even they just debuted more than 1 year. But now they think their job is more important than it so, yeah that's it. Idk about other artists under PLEDIS.

The only one idol from Plediz that I know being caught up with a dating scandal is Nana and it was not true. SO I guess it is safe to assume that Plediz is good at handling these things.

VenusMiranda NgohiongPuso Monday, November 28, 2016

Yeah, I think NU'EST said something about they even had romantic advices from his manager, maybe Pledis don't care much about it. I remember JungHa had a small scandal with Onew, that was fake, I think Pledis let'em date, but also teaches them how to hide it better.

You guys can't compare male to female idols, male idols always have more leniency, and most don't even have dating bans.

NgohiongPuso Julies_Wreath Tuesday, November 29, 2016

There was never a comparison made here... I think this was not the top comment you wanted to comment on..

Uee said on Taxi she was dating not long joining After School, I also seem to recall some of the other girls saying they didn't have dating restrictions; I would imagine that Pledis would like all companies have at least a 2 year ban especially if someone was below the age of consent however I think that as long as you are discrete they're not super obsessive about it.
