[Opinion] Dating as a K-Pop Star Is A Risky Business Move

Dating and finding someone to spend the rest of your life with is a desire that most have, but when you’re a K-pop star it seems like taking the risk to love someone else can lead to personal ruin.

Goo Hara’s fallout with her now ex-boyfriend is the stuff of nightmares. Physical assault, a pending lawsuit, a police investigation, and now a sex tape. The entire ordeal has forever changed Goo Hara’s life, and likely her career and public image.

According to a recent report, Goo’s ex-boyfriend had threatened to release an alleged sex tape in the midst of an ongoing police investigation. A media outlet had apparently gotten a hold of an audio file where Goo’s ex-boyfriend is heard making the treat. Notably, he mentions that if he releases it, the tape will likely ruin her career.

This is the crux of the issue when it comes to dating a K-pop star (and celebrities in general). Being in the public eye makes celebrities particularly vulnerable when undesirable information about their private lives is exposed.

It can ruin their public image and make fans turn their back on them. This is doubly damaging when it isn’t just a friend or former business associate, but a romantic partner — someone with who is confident, a best friend, and lover. The intimacy of the betrayal is astounding and certainly traumatizing for the actress and singer. Unfortunately, she is not the first nor the last star to be threatened in this way.

Beloved ballad singer Baek Ji-young’s manager secretly recorded the two having sex back in 2000. While he did not release it right away, he used it as leverage in an attempt to blackmail here her when she attempted to hire a new manager. However, the singer did not give in to his demands. But as a result, he released the video and it forced her to step away from the stage for five years.

Having a relationship turn toxic and implode is just one of the ways that dating can be a risky business move. However, sometimes the pressure comes from the outside.

In August, Cube Entertainment’s artists (for now) Hyuna and E’Dawn from boy group Pentagon announced that they have been in a relationship for up to two years. The confessions came shortly after the agency has issued an official denial of the rumors and in the middle of Triple H’s comeback. If the two artists were happy to finally have the truth revealed, that euphoria ended quickly when the backlash began.

Pentagon’s fans quickly descended on the couple for a variety of reasons, including feeling misled by their stage chemistry (they have chemistry off stage too, how upsetting), and because they were hiding it (but then they revealed it and…).

Not only that, but Cube Entertainment was forced to cancel Triple H’s promotional activities and removed E’Dawn from Pentagon’s schedule for the time being. In particular, in a stunning announcement, Cube Entertainment announced it had decided to oust the two singers.

The agency flip-flopped on the decision when their stock dropped. As of the writing of this article, Cube Entertainment has not announced the current standing of the two singers.

Cube Entertainment Flip-Flops on Ousting Hyuna and E’Dawn

In a confusing series of official statements, Cube Entertainment has reversed its decision to oust soloist Hyuna and Pentagon member E’Dawn.

As a result of internal conflict, the president of Cube Entertainment Shin Dae-nam made a 180-degree from an earlier press conference where he announced the ousting of both singer Hyuna and E’Dawn from Pentagon.

“We are only discussing the withdrawal of Hyun-a and E’Dawn, but nothing is decided (at this time). Since the artist’s opinions are important, we are going to consider this issue carefully and hear others’ opinions,” he said. They plan to hold a board meeting next week to make a final decision.

On the afternoon of September 13, an official from the company announced they would be expelling the two from the company due to a lack of trust. “We have been working on trust and trust is our top priority when managing artists,” the company said. Regarding Hyuna and E’Dawn, Cube Entertainment stated that they could not restore their trust in the two and as such can no longer work with them.

Unfortunately, both singers were informed about Cube Entertainment’s decision to oust them this morning through the press and acquaintances.

When the couple announced their relationship early last month, they subsequently damaged that trust. When the two revealed their relationship, it contradicted an official statement of denial from the company.

Not only that, but they also did not consult with the agency about their relationship and the possibility of openly dating. Further, the situation also resulted in a loss in profits due to the cancellation of Triple H’s comeback promotions.

Reportedly, inside the company, there is a stark divide between those opposed to the idea of ousting the two singers and those who voted to separate kick them out. Moreover, complicating the situation are the differing positions of shareholders. Before reversing their position, the company’s stocks closed at 2,775 KRW — a 6.57% loss that many attributes to the news that Hyuna would be leaving the company.

Meanwhile, until the board meeting Hyuna, E’Dawn, Pentagon, and their fans will remain in limbo.
