I must state upfront that I'm an international KPop fan, but I'm not a fan of HyunA or Pentagon. Sometimes I struggle with some of the issues idols must face, such as "scandals" and normally I try to not to look at the situations through a "western lense" because you know, cultures. But I'm really struggling with the HyunA and E'Dawn dating scandal. It's a mess. One BIG issue I've always struggled with is how much control and influence fans have over idols personal lives. As an adult human being I can't even comprehend why it's allowed and even in some cases (BGs) encouraged. I don't recall any GGs doing, but I really wish BGs would stop calling the fans their girlfriends. You're encouraging your hostage situation. Yes. To me they're hostages. And I need fans to realize that they're not dating these people and more than likely they never will. The relationship fans have with idols is essentially a business relationship. No more no less. If fans want to vow their undying love and pledge to stay with them forever, that's on them, but don't act like idols owe you something. For some odd reason I thought Cube was going to take a stand come what may. Nope, they crumbled like a spineless bitch. Nothing is going to change until one of these companies do it. So what if they lose some fans. They'll make new ones. I know this my cultural naivete talking, but I'm frustrated with the whole thing. Note: I typed this from my phone. There will be grammar and spelling errors. I'm hoping I'm understood.
