Hi do u have the link/explanation of the gay news? Or is it just rumor? Or it was posted on some official website ? I'm curious 😅. Btw have a nice day and keep supporting kadi!!
Here’s my full and recent analysis since the previous analysis were divided into parts
((I don’t claim any of my statements as facts unless it is linked to proof/source.))
First, how accurate is ‘찌라시’ (blind item)? I already explained a little bit here. However, here’s a deeper clarification. There are sites called 찌라시. It’s like a really big community for a market. People from different fields (entertainment, economy, government, private sectors etc) will share what they know and it will be posted on that sites.
찌라시 is a site where people just love to share and read other important/known people’s personal life gossip. There are no physical proofs posted there bcoz the people behind the 찌라시 could be directly related to the rumors. It’s like when you’re in school and you saw this couple tghtr all the time. Then, you spread the news around.
These ‘rumors’ could profoundly affect the company/person’s market price directly. Since the accuracy of the info can affect the money itself, in most cases only the evident info show up there. That’s why there are a lot of blind items about idols posted on pann.nate etc. It was from 찌라시. And people who have a direct relation with the writer in 찌라시 could see the real names instead of ABC.
I can only share this much.
1st Blind Item
“Impending news of an idol coming out of the closet?
One news media outlet has an exclusive report on evidence they’ve collected of a same sex couple within an idol group. It has been customary for reports on celebrities coming out of the closet to be banned from being reported but after waiting on the piece of news for months, the outlet has decided to break that custom.
The same sex couple that they will be revealing are two members in the same group and are trending idols that are expected to cause a ripple in the industry. The outlet is currently preparing for the inevitable lawsuit that will result from the report.” (x)
Trending idols (대세 아이돌, x)
There are many articles referred e x o as the trending idols. (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6) even in individual members articles (7, 8, 9, 10) before the bi was released. You can also check articles like 2015 상반기 결산. The articles never failed to mention e x o as well. However, there are quite a no of trending idols listed before the bi was released like e x i d, ap ink, b t s etc. So it is hard to determine the couple is from which group. But e x o is in the category.
Then the additional gay couple bi was released. This bi is related to the previous bi bcoz of the title itself ‘어제자 증권가 찌라시 내용.. 동성애 아이돌?’ Blind item from yesterday…. gay idol?
“An A-list idol group member ‘A’ is said to have fallen in love with none other than fellow member ‘B’. They’ve apparently been dating for five years now and the scandal is expected to be huge especially considering that they’re idol members from the same top level group. A and B were actually caught by a paparazzi last year but came to a compromise with paparazzi company C to bury the articles. A and B are still continuing their relationship.” (x)
The 2nd bi basically narrowed down the possible group.
국내 A급의 인기 아이돌 그룹의 A씨가 사랑에 빠졌다고 합니다
It’s the group that is A-list. Not the member. It’s an a-list idol group, member A fallen in love with fellow member B.
So the group is trending idols, A-list, and top level. Do you really have to think so hard to figure out who? Ok to be fair, here are the 5 groups that are listed in the category: SN SD, BB, In finite, SHIN ee and e x o. But which group is more relatable that is expected to be huge? Yeah, keep on saying what if the couple is from a small group and what if it’s a girl group. Do you really think these groups could leave a huge impact to the whole fandom not just the fandom of the specific group but the whole kpop fandom itself?
Do you think medias would want to take such huge risks just to out a gay couple from a nugu/not-so-famous group?
Another fact to consider is the company buried the dating scandal. If it’s in fi nite, their company can’t even handle L’s dating scandal (lol) back then now let alone a gay couple scandal?
It has to be from a big company that could handle both type of dating scandals and the group is still relevant from the 1st bi till the 2nd bi were released. This company has the power to manipulate the public and still consider the group as their money maker to the point that they’ll do anything to compromise with paparazzi company C to bury the articles.
That’s why I think it is a couple from e x o.
Next, move on to the couple. According to the bi, the media didn’t know the exact time the couple has been together. It mentioned apparently 5 years. In kr context, going to be 5 years (햇수로 5년째). They’re guessing. So the group isn’t that old or new.
The couple was caught by the paparazzi last year which linked to the first bi.
A and B are still continuing their relationship.
If they are indeed still continuing their relationship, they would have the most suspicious pattern/behaviour after the 2nd bi was released. Which two members in e x o were acting differently? Just think what would you do if you’re in s m’s spot? Just let the couple do their thing and repeat the same pattern? The changes must be abrupt that it caused them to act differently.
A lot of things happened followed by the bi. Keep calm and support KD! Take care, anon :)
