In the K-pop scene, where dating and getting married are not wholly supported by fans, many celebrities tend to hide their romantic relationships. But these seven K-pop idols were brave enough to announce their marriage to the public.
Revealing K-pop idols’ romantic relationships is not typical in the K-pop industry, and there are numerous times that they get highly criticized while most fans congratulate them. And because of the hate they receive, the career of most idols gets ruined.

Just like each ordinary person across the globe, K-pop idols reach the point in their lives that they would want to create their own family, and a few of them are listed below.
