Celebrity reporters reveal how idols date + what they witnessed at a year-end event

Celebrity reporters revealed the secrets of idol dating. 

On February 1, Celuv TV posted a video featuring 3 entertainment reporters - Kim Ji Hyun of TV DailyKim Ji Ha of TV Daily, and Lee Sang Ji of The Celuv

The reporters shared that all idols date in secret, but due to their busy schedule, they can't meet often and their relationships are only for a short time. They also revealed that sasaeng fans know more than the reporters, managers, and stylists. However, they never expose the info as they are greatly loyal to their idol.  

Reporter Kim Ji Hyun also shared what a hoobae reporter saw at a year-end show. She explained the waiting rooms of a top boy group and a top girl group were right next to each other. A member of the popular girl group was in the hallway waiting to use the bathroom. A member of the popular boy group boldly grasped her hand while walking by, making the girl group member blush and say, "Ahh you're gonna make us get caught." 


You can watch the full footage of the reporters' talk on idol dating above.

Why there is so much exposing of idols' dating ways? Soon they will be scared to look around on these shows or even attending them.


And that part about sasaengs makes me laugh, I don't know why :D invading privacy to the extreme level but at least not exposing xD

it’s probably bts, twice, red velvet, nct, exo, bp. those are some top groups and are from the same companies. they have the most loyal fans and most “loyal” sasaengs. i bet a member of bts is dating twice and red velvet members lol. there’s been rumours about jimin and twice/red velvet members for a while. and sm groups would find it easier to date since they from the same label (nct exo red velvet).

who cares, if these people had any ethics they wouldnt be out there trying to gain clicks by revealing how idols date in secret , let them date however they can, they're forced to do it in secret the least these people can do is let them do it in peace.

if they didnt have ethics, they would just go ahead and reveal the names of all the idols that they've found dating... Besides, they're not revealing anything new. Idols themselves have been saying these things for years.

*notes my sarcasm* oh yes... i suppose we and the idols should thank them for not reveling they're names thats so nice of them... yes... they're ethics are so great. *eye rolls* if they had any ethics at all they wouldn't be stalking peoples private lives for instant money and clicks in the first place .

This is cute but sad at the same time. Such a shame that idols can't date openly, and even though their schedules make these relationships more into flings, it would take so much pressure off of them if they could just be sociable with each other without K-netizens foaming at the mouth.

Creepy that sasaengs know more about the idols than the people who are around them constantly and i'm not a fan of reporters or anyone for that matter telling everyone how idols date secretly or what goes on that we don't see, we know they date secretly, but give them some ease that they can see eachother without others spilling the beans on what goes on behind the scenes

It’s funny that i see people saying “let them date they’re people too” “who cares if they date” “let them date in peace” but if their oppars and unnies get caught dating each other those fans will really be mad and pissed off at their oppars and unnies. but they lie to make themselves look and feel good. i know *certain fandoms* who are very good at this.

when she talked abt the idol waiting in the hallway for the bathroom at 6:46 I heard she said "bangtan sonyeondan" before the sound, and I thought I was the only one who thought like that but half the comments said the same... I guess it was bts then XD,+ who else "top boy group/A class as she said" was at the end of year awards other than bts

Honestly if "A member of the popular boy group boldly grasped her hand while walking by, making the girl group member blush and say, 'Ahh you're gonna make us get caught.' " then props to the guy lol. I wonder who they were referring to. Oh well best of luck to their relationship not getting caught. Hopefully.

I really think they should make a cute and funny Kdrama around this theme ! Like legit the plot should be about two Kpop idols falling in love and the problems they go through and such to be together. I think this will help everybody gain an even better insight into idols' dating lives and maybe even sympathize with them. Y'know, turn it into a norm and maybe then people will stop making it such a big deal and turning it into something so negative.

the article sure makes one side seems bad, but imagine this, you're reporter, and your boss be like 'you better find out secret about idols, or you're fired'. between both option, your favorite idol secret date exposed or a family doesn't have any to eat, well that's entertainment industry.


but yeah our beloved idols should be aware of the risk of dating while being idolized by many fans, but when they can handle their exposed relationship, like Hyuna and Hyojong, they became a cool couple and we support them so much.

we all know idols are dating each other, they young, beautiful and adults. super junior or bigbang reveal when they were seniors that they date many times but they were good at hide it, it's the same for others idols. I think the only people who still in denials are the fans.

I understand that celebrities are people too; they need their privacy. I also agree that some fans take their devotion to the extreme. However, the reality is harsh. These idols choose to be celebrities. As a result, they give up some of their privacy. Sometimes they do it willingly like when they interview for a magazine or appear in a TV program. But since they work in the public sphere, they can't stop people or businesses profiting from them, either financially or professionally.


Celebrity reporters, regardless of how you view them, do what they do because it is their job. As long as they stay within the bounds of the law, it is their right to report on things that they find compelling. (After all, freedom of speech and the press are enshrined in the South Korean Constitution.) Yes, some do it for financial gain. But magazines and TV shows do it too; they make money from advertisers and buyers.


If we severely restrict or completely destroy this symbiotic dynamic, fans and celebrities would be worse off.
