These are extremely unlucky idols when their private lives and dating stories are constantly being exploited by the media.
For idols, dating can affect a large fan base as well as their long career. However, many idols are quite unlucky when the media exposes their dating news twice in a short period of time.
“The nation’s first love” once had a romantic relationship with actor Lee Min Ho. The two were caught by Dispatch while dating in Paris. After that, Suzy confirmed the relationship with her senior and continued the dating story. Until November 2017, the couple broke up due to busy schedules.
Not long after that, Suzy’s private life was once again exploited by the media when her relationship with actor Lee Dong Wook was announced. However, because the two had just begun their relationship, they did not fully comprehend each other. Furthermore, the workload was so intense that the couple decided to call it quits after only four months of dating.
Because the group has a big number of fangirls and sasaeng fans, EXO members are usually cautious about their private lives. There have been three love scandals in the group, with two of them involving Kai. In 2016, it was announced that EXO’s main dancer was dating Krystal, another SM idol. After a year of maintaining their affection, the two split up in mid-2017, returning to their previous friendship and fellowship.
Bad luck continued to follow the male idol when a series of photos of him and Jennie (BLACKPINK) were brought to light by Dispatch on January 1, 2019. Unfortunately, this love story ended a month later because both wanted to focus on their own careers.
The former 2AM member once had a memorable love affair with Yeeun, a close friend under JYP Entertainment. From the friendship, the two found harmony in their souls and went on a secret date in 2014, making their relationship public in 2016. During the whole process, the couple always had gentle care for each other.
In April 2017, however, newspaper reports claimed that Yeeun and Jinwoon had broken up. The singer’s agent later confirmed the information.
On November 13, SBS FunE said that the male idol was dating Kyungri and the two have confirmed the relationship. According to the official announcement of the company, the former 2AM member had developed feelings for his girlfriend at the end of 2017, which is just a short time after he broke up with his ex-girlfriend. The couple gave each other good feelings after collaborating on several shows. However, after all, they confirmed their breakup in 2021.
The leader of BIGBANG’s condition was also complicated by the fact that he was constantly monitored by the media. The male idol was twice caught up in dating rumors with a Japanese model, once with Kiko and once with Nana.
On January 1, 2018, G-Dragon and Lee Joohyun, a former After School member, were exposed by Dispatch with a series of dating photos. Occasionally, the couple’s mischievous clips were leaked on social networks, making KPOP fans believe that they were still maintaining their relationship.
Most recently, in 2021, the leader of Big Bang continued to be revealed to be dating Jennie (BLACKPINK).
