One thing i noticed in kpop is that they promote the idols/groups as boys you can have a chance with and who'll always be available for you and everything sweet that you need in a man. And the moment those idols start dating everyone start acting like they just committed the biggest crime ever in human history, they even call it a "dating scandal" when it shouldn't even be a scandal. Comparing it to the west, popular boybands might end up dating even tho they also kind of promote themselves as that boy who has a crush on u(their fan) and you might have a chance to date them. But when they start dating it doesn't get looked at as a scandal, things just gets heated between fans and the members' gf, but it somehow stops after a month. Even 2 members of 1D had girlfriends before and while they blew up and it still didn't affect their careers. I think the industry should stop promoting idols like this because it does nothing but invite those immature fans who think they're gonna marry their bias. And it also somehow gives the public an excuse to hate on the idol for some reason. I feel like people(mostly k fandoms) forget idols are also humans with feeling, they're gonna date people too.
