8 Idols and Groups That Would Never Get Away With Dating

1. BTS
If ANY member of BTS were to choose to announce that they were in a relationship, it would be extremely unwise. They're currently riding the wave of their highest high in their career and it would be a terribly bad idea to put that in jeopardy by sparking a huge amount of controversy around a dating rumor or announcement. This would probably cause die-hard fans to become antis as well.
2. Big Bang's G-Dragon
Unlike his Big Bang group mate Taeyang, fans wouldn't take well to G-Dragon announcing a relationship. Taeyang has always set himself up to be the 'boyfriend' type, so for some reason, when he announced his relationship and subsequent engagement and marriage, most people were excited- maybe it's because "Wedding Dress" hypnotized us to expect this. G-Dragon, on the other hand, would be a cruel knife in many fans' hearts.
3. EXO
EXO's fans are some of the most passionate fans in the entire K-Pop fandom. They are not afraid to use their platforms to support the group. We've seen many overzealous fans in the EXO-L fandom take the 'anti' thing pretty intensely, so it may translate over to a bad reaction if one of the members of the group were to announce a relationship. The aftermath of an announcement of that caliber seems potentially catastrophic. There were a lot of angry fans after Baekhyun revealed he was dating Taeyeon along when Kai revealed he was dating Krystal.
4. Wanna One
Wanna One's worth is growing exponentially and this means that they're garnering fans at an almost alarming rate. Wanna One fans that are extremely passionate tend to jump on any type of hate directed towards the group and tear it to shreds. One girl even cut the ponytail of a fan in front that was blocking her view at the finale concert in Seoul. The Yuk Ji Dam and Kang Daniel scandal was enough of a whirlwind, so it's hard to imagine the outcome of a real announcement.
5. f(x)'s Amber
One netizen pointed this out and we really got to thinking about this. Though Amber wouldn't be the first person on your mind when you think about idols that wouldn't get away with dating, unfortunately, you have to acknowledge that she'd be in a weird position given what fans assume about her.
6. NCT's Taeyong
Though NCT could potentially trigger backlash if any members were to date, we think that Taeyong stands out as the number 1 risk. Generally, those who are more visual and cute have a lot more backlash from obsessed sasaengs when they choose to date, so Taeyong seems to be in a tough spot. With the group's size, one bad scandal could topple the entire group.
7. Red Velvet's Irene
Irene from Red Velvet is beautiful, but for whatever reasons, some fans feel entitled to having a piece of that beauty to themselves. Red Velvet stans are intense when it comes to their fan love, so Irene would be the strongest circumstance of bad backlash. Irene was spotted at one point reading a feminist book, and fanboys gave a ton of criticism over that. Good thing Irene doesn't pay them any mind. You go, girl!
Funny enough, we don't think that BLACK PINK fans would be the one having the fit if one of them were to date. We think that YG would probably have the biggest fit and wouldn't allow the girls to date. Given their long hiatuses and disappearances, we think that YG's reign on the group would probably be the reason that dating would never happen.

Which idol do you think could never date publicly?
