In the past, member of an idol group have an “unwritten rule” for dating, that it can’t be made public, or they even have to pretended not to know each other. In the old days if those oppas and unnies caught in a picture together, it might cause a love scandal, but now it has changed. Member of an idol group can date on public or even announced their marriage. And tvN took the advantage on this change of reality.
We thought that with the idol group’s overlap activities there’s an opportunity for them to get along since they often to run into each other, but apparently it wasn’t well. Rather than “friends” there are more “colleagues” to maintain a proper distance. Thus you can found in <The Romantic & Idol> that is oriented for an ‘internal-date’ like love at the set.

“I can’t watch the broadcast, my hands and feet were shrivel [nervous and shy], (laugh) all of the peoples around me said it was fun. They said want to be appeared (in the show) as well. The members say it seems to be a good encounter. The 8 casts are very nice and gentle, and the program seems so cooperative. The show want to put into the cast’s true feelings. Everyone is different but they have their own charm.“
