In the realm of K-Pop, the topic of love and relationships has long been shrouded in secrecy, with idols often facing restrictions on dating and marriage.

However, breaking away from the norm, SF9’s Zuho recently took a bold stand against the prevailing notion that K-Pop idols “can’t get married.”

The Backlash: A History of Controversy

The backlash faced by idols who defy these unwritten rules is no secret. Sungmin from Super Junior faced immense criticism for tying the knot with Kim Sa Eun, while HIGHLIGHT’s Dongwoon publicly apologized to fans after revealing his relationship.

“So a fan yesterday said to me that Korean idols cannot be married,” Zuho began, setting the stage for a candid conversation. He challenged the notion, stating, “My answer to her is, why? That’s not a rule. That’s not a law.”

Breaking down barriers, Zuho emphasized that K-Pop idols are no different from anyone else in society. “Even though they are K-Pop idols, they are the same as parents, family, and children,” he asserted, implying that they too deserve the chance to experience love.

 

 

“Why would you say it like that?” Zuho questioned, pushing back against the negative stereotypes surrounding idols and relationships. His honest and direct approach garnered widespread praise from netizens, both domestically and internationally.

Zuho’s Consistent Stand Against Criticism

This isn’t the first time Zuho has earned applause for his frank and transparent responses to criticism. The idol’s unwavering commitment to challenging stereotypes and embracing authenticity has resonated with fans on multiple occasions.

In a K-Pop landscape often characterized by silence on personal matters, Zuho’s willingness to speak out not only adds a layer of humanity to the industry but also signals a potential shift in attitudes towards the personal lives of idols.
