BIGFLO's Euijin says he wants to break the prejudice that idols can't date

BIGFLO, Euijin, Euijin

BIGFLO's Euijin opened up about his thoughts on dating.

On the first episode the Mnet pilot variety program 'Somebody', Euijin made quite an impression as he danced to Charlie Puth's "We Don't Talk Anymore". Afterwards when he introduced himself, all the other cast members told him that he definitely looked and had the aura of an "idol". 

When the topic of dating as an idol came up, Euijin spoke up confidently during the interview: "I am popular because of my image as an idol, but I want to break the prejudice that idols can't date just because they are idols. I want to break away from that image and instead dream of a comfortable relationship, one that is based on mutual trust."



Euijin then added that since he is "a bit on the older side," the time has finally come for him to date.

Mnet's 'Somebody' is a dating reality show that features 5 male dancers and 5 female dancers to showcase their charms for a successful dance partnership. At the end of the program, the 5 male-female couples will film various genres of dance videos together.

I'm afraid your late to the scene Euijin. E'dawn is already trying to break that particular stigma.

E'dawn is no longer an considered an idol; just a solo artist (if that).

So I'm afraid 'you' are wrong.

it won't be easy, idols "can't" date publicly is formed from the 80's or 90's, since the beginning and no body could break it, not even hyuna since she is still getting hate in korea.

It's definitely not easy but it is doable. Taeyang from BigBang is extremely successful and wildly popular yet he managed to comfortably date and eventually marry the love of his life. Now take a look at Sungmin from SuJu. Again wildly successful and popular, yet he did not receive the same support with his dating news and eventual marriage. I think the entertainment company that these idols are in play a huge part in how the public receives such news. YG is known for having a somewhat relaxed atmosphere and environment for their artists while SM is the polar opposite. Once these companies stop demonizing dating and show fans that idols can still be committed to the fans and their jobs WHILE being happy with their PERSONAL lives, this obsessive fan nature will hopefully lessen (at least regarding dating).

the fans don't have a problem with dating, they have a problem with the artist lying to them and saying "he is not dating anyone, while he is" so they feel betrayed in someway. taeyang admitted it cleanly once, but sungmin from Suju (I don't remember if he did) but I know the fans don't support him because he lied and quickly got married without telling his fans (and I read somewhere that he cancelled his overseas schedule abruptly and had the wedding next day something like that, not even his member attended).

I don't think the company have a say if the idol want to announce that they are dating if they do it cleanly without lying. u see hyuna's case, the company denied but she admitted the next day on insta, which is wrong because she didn't discuss with her agency first and look what happened, should've discussed first that she will admit, I bet that way the fans would've support them.

I just don't quite understand why fans take it so personally though. This isn't like a relative or close friend who has lied to them about a personal situation. I don't get all worked up because a celebrity didn't have the audacity to share news about their personal lives with me. I get that kpop is about selling a fantasy but that's all it is. Just a fantasy. These fans have taken it beyond the fantasy realm when they demand idols to continuously play up to this onscreen image 24/7. This is a fan issue in my opinion. To try and make this an idols fault is unfair. What if idols in turn condemned fans who are in relationships of their own for fangirling and fanboying over them? Maybe, just maybe if the fans would stop and think that idols want to have loving relationships and a sense of normalcy as well, they might be more inclined to be honest and forthcoming with these situations without fear of being completely demolished by people.

I in no way support SM as a company.... But, I definitely know one thing that they DO support ther artists' dating life even within the company!

For example, Kaistal and BaekYeon couple who've successfully dated, but just bcoz of fucking Immature shits couldn't control their hormones for their Oppas and start spreading cancer on the Net and in real lives....

You told about YG atmosphere which is not even a factor with him being ironically the Most restrictive person on their Idols like BP, iKON, Winner etc. GD's fans the real shit when it comes to Dating news :D

Even after all above incidents, they(SM) didn't put any sort restrictions on their artists dating life rather it's the artists themselves controlled for their fans!

You make very valid points. I think the fans are definitely often the deciding factor but I also think it would go a long way with showing positivity towards dating news and marriage coming from those in charge. Like I mentioned before, Sungmin was a well loved member of SuJu and for his fans to have viciously turned on him the way they did is insane. He is still not apart of any SuJu activities. Until when does the madness end? Picking and choosing what idols can and cannot date from a fans perspective should not even be an option.

The show is Somebody it is tagged as a dance romance show. So yes they are going to bring up daiting even if it is mainly a dance show. They literally said in summary about it that it's supposed to be a show about ten dancers finding romance.

Most companies have a verbal contract of no dating; and frankly it makes sense.

JUST too much money is invested into individuals to just 'up and dip'.
These trainees regardless, are still investments, so i personally understand it from a management perspective.
Granted not all will abandon the team, training time to walk a different path, but still... if they did it'd be a financial hit to the company period. Finding talent is already difficult as it is in such a saturated market.
Blah fukit, its likely to pass over heads here anyways, gm and pz out o/

Easier said than done. Hyuna and Edawn's situation was full of chaos and drama and that was despite Hyuna being a celebrated and experienced idol in the industry, so I can only imagine what it would be like for idols that are not that well known.


On another note I'm so excited for this show because we FINALLY get a show with some couple dancing instead of individual or all boy/all girl group dances - hopefully the dancers aren't too stiff and we get some nice chemistry going on.

I dont know him, is he that famous now? How can he break the prejudice if he is not successful like Bts? The only people who can break the prejudice are those popular kpop idols because they have lots of bias fans. To break the prejudice they have to risk their career.

Can’t be easy because the whole concept of being an idol and dating are contradicting. Idols attract fans not just with their music, but also allowing some fantasy of them being the “love” of their fans, and dating definitely wouldn’t help with this.

depends on which kind of idol he wants to be.

If he gets popular with music that caters more toward the public of all ages, then he will easily be able to date.

If his music caters to only his fans and 14 year old teen girls, then he can still date but he will loose a lot of popularity
