K-pop idols have turned in their lives in privacy to become stars living in the constant spotlight. Becoming famous has its ups and downs as these idols are able to live a life that many are envious of.
However, that spotlight sometimes costs them much more as they must live under the constant scrutiny of fans and netizens. These idols are often unable to enjoy the ordinary things in life, such as hanging out with their friends without having their photos taken.
This is especially severe when these idols are seen hanging out with someone of the opposite sex. This is because some fans do not wish to see their idols dating other people as they are expected to give their love and attention to their fans.
Recently, netizens have compiled a list of male idols who were unaware of having their photos taken while hanging out with females.
Netizens commented, "I remember the first photo, the other person who was with Pentagon member was really popular so they focused more on her lol," "Wow, there are so many pentagon members on this list," "That photo of A Pink's Eunji was not a big issue because she was hanging out with VICTON that's a junior in the same company. They were also with their manager, so why are they bringing this back?" "These are not all photos of their girlfriends but just friends that are girls, so why are people making this a big deal?" "These people who are taking photos of these idols need to stop invading their privacy," "The bigger issue is not these idols hanging out with girls but the issue is with the people who are taking photos without their permission," and "Why are they posting these photos? That's invading their privacy."
