Dating rules in asia
Now, I’m sure someone is thinking of me as a hypocrite by this point. Granted, two of Sai Sai’s members are already too old to have the no dating rule pinned to them but still. It wasn’t until his fame declined did her date and even then, he had crazy fans insulting his girlfriends. You can try to say it is, but you're only lying to yourself.
If you know me, it comes as no surprise I like idols. The only idol group I am a dedicated fan of is Silent Siren. Every other idol group I listen to is just casual listening, I don’t care to keep up with all the news surrounding them. If Suu chose to date (she’s 21 so she probably has the rule pinned to her), I wouldn’t care. As long as her boyfriend treats her right, then I don't care. It is a coincidence that Justin didn’t date at the height of his career? When Justin’s career started, much like other Western idols, he was probably heavily encouraged by his management to not date. I only know that K-pop fans have a special name for the insane ones, though I can’t remember what it is. We expect them to be perfect and when they mess up, we berate them for it.
When it happened, it caused a firestorm of controversy, particularly amongst foreigners who don’t understand the Japanese music industry. It brought attention to the infamous, and often forgotten, “no dating” rule for many young idols in Asian countries.
For her own response, Minami shaved her head and gave a tearful apology to her fans for her “thoughtless act”. Some wanted to berate Minami and support the no dating rule and others like me were supporting Minami and speaking out against the no dating rule.
Choice two, they can continue their entertainment career without being an idol.
Choice three, they can continue their career as an “old” idol.
He wouldn’t be available, he would not be able to live out his fans’ fantasies. I’m fairly sure it’d cross the line into bashing so let’s just move on. We expect so much of our idols, of our celebrities. I had a point, but I think I lost it halfway through this. Japan will be under heavy focus since I know the Japanese music industry the best.
