After looking at the trend over the last year and a half, netizens have joked that female idols are no longer interested in dating male idols. Following Jihyo’s rumors, netizens pointed out that all the top female idols who have been revealed to be dating have chosen men outside the industry, whether it’s actors, athletes, or those who aren’t in the spotlight.

In the past, it wasn’t uncommon for idols to date each other, but fans seem to be happy female idols are choosing partners in other industries, with many believing it gives them more “freedom.”
