K-netizens shocked by the article about the gay dating story between 2 male idols in the same group: Is this fanfiction?

There are many speculations about the identity of the boy group mentioned in this article.

Although fanservice is something that has become so common in K-pop over the years, with the prejudices of Korean society, whether or not K-pop group couples that are actively “shipped” by fans really have ” something” going on between them remains a mystery. Fans many times have to wonder if their OTP is “real” or only “acting” for the sake of fanservice. However, an article published by Woman Sense has partly instilled confidence in K-pop fans about the possibility that there are actually dating couples within the same groups. 

A post on Nate Pann recently cited the content of the article that Woman Sense released in June 2021. Here is the translation of a part of the article titled “Male idols love men“!

“This was a few years ago. The waiting room of the music show was messed up, filled with the noisy voice of the staff and urgent voice of the manager who were confused 

“Wake up!”

“Call 119!”

On one side of the waiting room, member A of a boy group fainted. B is helping A, who is slowly passing out, get up. They are members of the same group. With B’s support, A gradually regained consciousness, but his eyes could not see anything but B’s face. The manager could sense the odd atmosphere between these two members, so he took other members. and the staff outside. The conversation between A and B that was heard from the waiting room right was indeed not normal.

“How could you do that to me?” – A

“I told you not to show that side of yours to everyone during broadcast” – B

“If you like it, it’s possible”. – Mr. A.

B kicked the door open and walked out at this point. It turned out that the two of them were a gay couple that even their agency couldn’t stop them. They are the two most popular members of the group, and the harm towards the agency if they have to leave is too great, therefore this is a situation in which the company has no control. In the end, the management company had no choice but to protect their secret relationship.  What’s shocking is that because A and B got into an argument during a weekly music show, their group wasn’t able to go on stage at that time.

Since then, the two have continued to show their affection for each other.  Even in official schedules, they appear together more and more.  So the Kpop idol industry even started calling them the “1+1” couple. 

Once, something like this happened.  Unlike A, who is very energetic and vibrant, B has a very calm personality.  But one day, B suddenly turns into a tough man.  The two of them participated in an entertainment program on Youtube. During filming, the two looked at each other and exchanged their own signals, but when A pretended not to know B’s signal, B angrily left the set.  It was something that would never have been possible with B’s usual calm personality, so industry insiders have called it “a one-of-a-kind love expression”.

Many people are taken aback, yet they can’t help but be excited at the details they thought only existed in BL fanfics. Furthermore, Korean internet users have speculated on the identity of the boy group described in this story, but nothing is certain as of yet.

  • B is so weird ㅡㅡ He was angry and told A not to do that while on the show but then he got angry because A ignored his signal? Hilarious.  It’s like a fanfic ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
  • I don’t know if it’s a gen 2 group or not, but this rumor was not made up by Woman Sense.  This is a real thing.
  • Can someone recommend some fanfics with similar content?
  • The funniest thing is that the reporter rewrote it with a style like he was writing a fanfic novel ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ  With B’s support, A gradually regained consciousness, but his eyes could not see anything but B’s face ㅋㅋㅋ What a good romance novel ㅜㅜㅜㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
  • I feel like this is a pretty famous group… Used to have a private waiting room on a music show, and got the full support of the management company (hiding the love story). The company is extremely concerned about maintaining the group’s existence. Otherwise, the company would have let them reveal the hint to the fans.
  • I heard it’s a group from Produce.
  • Why do I believe this is a nugu band rather than a well-known one? Why hasn’t there been a news article about a popular band whose members fainted in the waiting room and didn’t go on stage to perform? Maybe this is a group that even the press doesn’t care about ㅋㅋㅋ”
  • Who is that, really curious.  Everyone thinks about it.  Not many groups go to music shows but don’t perform on stage.
