BTS and other K-Pop groups do not date publicly

When it comes to dating, K-Pop stars like BTS and BLACKPINK do not date publicly. The ARMY and millions of BTS fans are constantly vying for Jungkook, Jin, V, RM, Suga, J-Hope, and Jimin’s hearts. However, none of the seven men have been in public relationships since the band was first formed in 2013.

K-Pop stars have very different lives than American A-listers. In the U.S., there is a frenzied obsession with celebrities’ personal lives. They are constantly in the tabloids, combating rumors and untruths. In Korea, K-Pop stars are taught to avoid all questions about their personal lives.

In most interviews, when their dating and personal lives come up, BTS has talked about their love for their fans and their work. It’s a way to shift the conversation and steer it away from their personal business. Moreover, it is known that their record labels also prevent stars from getting into relationships without the consent of the labels.

Still, this has not stopped Jungkook from being linked to Lisa from BLACKPINK. Neither artist has confirmed anything about their alleged romance. However, Lisa’s bandmates Jennie and Rose have discussed how challenging it is for them to have a personal life at all.

Se Won was so fed up by it all that she took to Twitter to clap back. “Aren’t people busy minding their own lives? ” she wrote. “Why do they care so much about other people without knowing the facts? I don’t understand why I have sit and listen to those kind of things. I’m tired of holding it back, I’m so sick of it.”
