Lately, there have been quite a few rumors about 'Dispatch Couples' circulating online!
Quasi-traditionally, the media outlet 'Dispatch' has always revealed at least one new celebrity couple each year on New Year's Day. As such, it has become somewhat of a sub-tradition among certain fans to predict which couple(s) will be revealed next year.
This year, as we potentially await new couples to be revealed in 2021, certain fans have been circulating rumors surrounding idols in order to bring attention to their bias groups. Even though there has not been confirmed sources from 'Dispatch' indicating the reveal of new couples, fans have spread the word that there will be either a total of "seven couples" or "a couple that has been dating for seven months."
With these 'predictions,' some have taken to Twitter to insert humorous clickbaits that would lead users to a K-Pop MV.
Another way to appropriate 'Dispatch' has been posting about potential 'couples' within their favorite groups, such as the one for Stray Kids below:
Although these are groundless rumors, K-Pop fans have been 'having fun' with this 'Dispatch' tradition that has always stirred up buzz online. What are your thoughts?
