Should celebrity couples with big age gaps be criticized for dating when they’re all adults?

Should celebrity couples with big age gaps be criticized for dating when they’re all adults?

After the recent release of Kang Dong Won and BLACKPINK Rosé, dating rumors of stars with big age gaps are attracting attention again.

Rumors of a romantic relationship between Kang Dong Won and Rose surfaced on April 17 thanks to a photo posted by Riccardo Tisci, the former creative director of luxury brand Burberry.

The posted photo shows Kang Dong Won and Rosé at a house party together. Netizens then found more evidence, like the two wearing similar necklaces and outfits, as well as attending the same event, held at COEX in Seoul last year.

First, YG Entertainment said: “It is difficult to confirm the information as it concerns the artists’ private lives.”

Contrary to YG’s answer “It is not true” When dating rumors surfaced between Big Bang G-Dragon and Shinsegae group chairman Lee Myung Hee’s granddaughter, or BLACKPINK Jisoo and soccer player Son Heung Min, the agency avoided responding to romance suspicions such as: B. BLACKPINK Jennie & V, AKMU Lee Chan Hyuk and fromis_9 Lee Sae Rom, etc. Therefore, many people consider YG’s silence as their way of confirming the artists’ relationships.


Actually, the agency is under no obligation to confirm or deny dating rumors because it literally involves celebrities’ private lives. In particular, the interpretation of the agency’s statement “Hard to confirm” as confirmation of a romance is excessive behavior. In fact, Taeyang and Min Hyo Rin are the only couple confirmed by YG Entertainment.

However, this time the issue led to malicious comments towards Kang Dong-won. The 16-year age gap between 42-year-old actor Kang Dong Won, born in 1981, and 26-year-old singer Rosé, born in 1997, has become a hot topic.


In the past, when older male celebrities were said to be dating younger women, they were often the subject of negative comments. Regardless of the age difference, however, all celebrities involved in dating rumors, including Kang Dong Won and Rosé, are adults. When two adults have feelings for each other and are dating, the third party has no right to judge or criticize them.

In couples with women much older than men, they will not face bad opinions at all. In addition to Lady Jane and Lim Hyun Tae, who recently announced their wedding, Gong Hyo Jin and Kevin Oh also bridged their 10-year age difference. Both couples received heartfelt congratulations as they announced their relationship and wedding.

On the other hand, Kang Dong Won must have suffered all sorts of malicious comments just because he was rumored to be dating a younger woman. Few people have tried to voice their opinions in the actor’s defense by saying “Even if they do date, it’s their choice. Why are you cursing him? “.


In the end, YG decided to change his position and said: “Rosé’s dating rumor reported today (April 17) is untrue.” This appears to be YG’s response to the harsh criticism faced by Kang Dong Won, her former artist, and Rosé, who is currently under her direction.

The age difference between lovers is something that those involved are aware of and there is nothing to be said about it. However, leaving hate comments just because of their huge age difference is definitely a problem. This dating rumor has turned out to be unfounded, but even if another star can bridge the huge age and date gap, it should remain a private matter. Dating or getting married is not a crime.
