Girls' Generation's Sunny noticed that her juniors are making this one crucial mistake in dating secretly, but she's sure her plan will never fail. To follow up Girls' Generation's Taeyeon's apology, EXO's Baekhyun has now reached out to fans in this heartfelt post via his instagram account. EXO's Baekhyun has spoken out for the first time since his relationship with Girls' Generation's Taeyeon was exposed last week. Kim Taeyeon "Kid Leader" of Girls' Generation (SNSD) has found a Updated: SM Confirms, Girls' Generation Taeyeon and EXO Baekhyun Are Dating You usually hear the advice that it is best to avoid dating within the.

Now that I think about it, it was useless making an Instagram, buying your albums, and voting for you. There has been an effort to counter this negativity with some postive energy.
Some idols are not as secretive about their relationships because they either believe they are low tier enough to not have too large of a backlash or they are strong enough to take on any angry fans. I would love to be in a relationship with my bias in 2NE1 or have a closer relationship with my noonas, which is perfectly fine for any Kpop fan. It becomes a problem when your fantasy begins to control your life and ruin the lives of others.
Girls' Generation Sunny's Fool-Proof Plan On Dating Secretly As An Idol
It appears there is a reason for this as well and the reason just might surprise some fans. This actually surprised the MCs, which I find interesting because I thought they would just accept it as idol management. It is more comfortable for us and if a scandal erupts we can control it better.
Why does the relationship have to be comfortable for SM Entertainment? What about a childhood friend? Apparently a relationship for an SM artist is not a two person affair. It is a three person affair with the two lovers and SM Entertainment regulating it. A scandal erupting and having control over it is just admitting you want control over as much of your idols as possible.
It probably means they can get the two into a room, reprimand them or coach them on how to handle the issue for the press. This does not mean SME management does not care about the actual feelings involved, but those feelings are most likely taking a back seat to the business concerns.
It is hard enough hiding relationships from the public and press, but your own label adds more pressure. Dream on and push for that day. The differentiation between being members of an idol group and being individual entertainers is what is important.
The same cannot be said about junior groups, even ones like SHINee and f x that have very defined concepts and have seen numerous successes. SHINee has also promoted without individual members, but the group is much more popular as five.
Taemin's solo debut is the first sign that SHINee is transitioning from one of SM's junior groups to one where the individual members have so much love that they are no longer reliant on the group image. EXO and Red Velvet are still so new that it would be unthinkable for their members to come out en masse with relationships, as is happening with Super Junior and Girls' Generation.
Baekhyun's relationship with his fans is suffering in a way different from Taeyeon's with her fans. Both had fans who were hurt in the way that the relationship came to light, but Taeyeon's fans have supported her for multiple years.
EXO is still reeling from Kris' departure, and Baekhyun's scandal risked alienating fans who still see the member as an idol rather than a person. Between different relationships with the fans and older idols, the aging members, and SM Entertainment's self-assurance that Super Junior and Girls' Generation will be successful regardless of individual members' scandals, there's no reason to deny the relationships of top-tier idols any longer.
However, younger, newer idols are still so reliant on fans and their group identity, that individual relationships are frowned upon. SM Entertainment is becoming much more open to its idols dating, easily confirming relationships when the groups are not at risk. In light of the personal affairs that impacted Jessica leaving the group, it is worth noting that SM Entertainment never confirmed her relationship with Tyler Kwon. Although their names have been thrown together, the entire affair has been blamed on Jessica's business venture Blanc, rather than any desires of hers to pursue personal relationships marriage rumors aside.
Regardless if Jessica's romantic life had a role, which many assume it did, SM Entertainment has shown, once again, that personal issues will not stop its top girl group.

An eight member Girls' Generation is odd, and not as stable as the group was with nine members.
