The artists of Pledis are no exception, the girls in the Pristin band tell that they are banned for dating from 3 years minimum. For some profit-making music bands, this time will extend to about 4-5 years. That’s the reason why Pledis Entertainment’s artists almost never involved in any scandal of dating.

SM – Not prohibited

Although SM very harshes in training and management issues but quite easily in the dating of their “chickens”. Most of the idols could date if they want to. SM also encouraged house’s chicken dating to the same people in the company. In part by meeting easily, difficult to detect, in part to easily handle every scandal breaking out. However, though dating outside or within the company with the tight schedule even not enough time to sleep, then will the idols of SM are healthy enough and time to date?

Big Hit – Not prohibited

PD Bang Si Hyuk is different, the CEO of Big Hit allows BTS to date and does not prohibit the love stories of BTS’s members from the original. “Kingpin” of the Big Hit is extremely confident to BTS, the evidence is that without any rules or bans, the members still manage themselves so well to fulfill their dreams. Despite being debut almost 5 years but look, their boys still have a pleasing with fan and don’t set a date with anyone.

Compared with the old days, the “Mr. Big” now has more comfortable in managing the personal lives of the idols. Even dating, just need the idols of them don’t affect the schedule and work. Hope in the future, our idols will receive more sympathy from fans to ease the pressure between private life and work.
