Not too long ago, K-pop idols used to be terrified when it came to revealing who they were dating. Idols' careers were often badly disrupted when relationships became public knowledge. For instance, HyunA and Dawn had to leave their label and their respective groups when it was revealed that they were dating and had to re-establish themselves as solo artists. There was a near-obsessive culture around K-pop idols staying single to be 'available' as a romantic fantasy ideal for their fans. But with many international fans joining K-pop fandoms, this notion is being challenged. Looks like now as K-pop goes global, the idea of looking at K-pop idols as artists only and not potential love interests is slowly starting to gain ground.

With more K-pop idols dating publicly or getting married, fans are growing mature and are more accepting of such decisions. Gone are the days when idols used to fear death threats from fans targetting their partners. The present generation of K-pop fans are more likely to express their emotions through memes like when rumors swirled about BTOB Sungjae dating an influencer. On July 7, GOT7's leader Jay B broke Twitter when it was announced that he was dating the SFX Artist and YouTuber, Pure.D (Kim Do-hyun) for the last nine months. Initially, fans were not ready to believe the reports but then, the relationship was confirmed by both Jay B and Pure.D's agencies. Much to the surprise of Stan Twitter, Ahgases (fans of GOT7) showered the couple with blessings.

Ahgases congratulate Jay B via Pure.D!

Fans started talking about how it was Jay B who lucked out having Pure.D as his girlfriend as the YouTuber looks charming and has an enviable figure. Ahgases were pretty nonchalant about the dating news as if they had already expected that from the idol and it was not a matter of shock at all. One more fan said, "Handwritten letter by jay b is possible knowing that man. But I hope I won't be reading any apology from him. Man doesn't need to feel sorry just because he's dating. Please let's make him feel that him dating is totally fine and we're totally happy for him."
