K idols are often looked at as your dream man/woman. Their stunning visuals and undeniable talent are showcased to be appreciated by fans. But sometimes fans are getting out of hand and dating news and rumors often backlashes to couples. Here are top kpop couples who received the most hate from dating another kstar.
Rumor: IU & Eunhyuk 2012
IU mistakenly uploaded a photo of herself with topless Eunhyuk in bed. Even though no dating news was confirmed, IU received complete hate. It gave her a pretty harsh time and shared a lot of sentiments to the issue.
“I thought a lot about, should I go out and apologize to everyone and clear up all the misunderstandings, or should I just stay quiet? I pushed back variety shows as much as I could because of that.” IU stated.
In 2012, it was quite a taboo to date when you are an idol. And they looked at it negatively since IU was only 19 at that time. This gave a lot of awkward moments for the two onscreen, and both sides had to apologize.
Baekhyun & Taeyeon 2014
SM confirmed the dating news after dispatched released photos of the couple having a sweet date in the car. They both received hate comments. Baekhyun and Taeyeon had to apologize for being in a relationship because of the ‘betrayal’. According to their report, they have been dating for about four months but eventually ended in 2015. Many fans have left comments on her Instagram shaming her. Taeyeon responded to some but it didn’t stop there. Even until 2018 continues to receive such comments when she posted a photo with Suho.
Kai & Krystal 2016
Fans took two sides to this couple. Because long before the rumor began, a lot of fans ship the two. They both acknowledge the news, which is rare to K idols, giving some nods to fans. But highly obsessed fans did not take the news well, leaving hate comments to Kaistal. In 2016, some fans are giving approval to idols dating but this couple did not escape criticisms and jealousy from fans. Unfortunately, the blooming relationship ended in 2017 stating that they want to focus more on their careers.
Hyuna & Edawn/Dawn 2018
Although fans are starting to warm up with the strongest Kpop couple., we cannot forget how Hyuna and Dawn had to leave Cube because of their relationship. Dawn was pulled out first in Pentagon while Hyuna continued to receive a lot of bashes. Cube later kicked out the two from the company without discussing the issue. There were mixed reactions from the fans.
The couple later joined Psy’s Entertainment and is still stronger than ever despite what happened.
