These days without advertistments or variety shows, it is difficult for idols to maintain the support of the general wide public.
Therefore within the fandom idols, they are ‘idols’ but in front of the public they become ‘idols’ who play well. Super Junior received the Golden Disk Daesang, but members Leeteuk and Eunhyuk received the SBS ‘s Rookie award. Within fandom they are daesang’s admirers, but in front of public they must become entertainers who can do anything. Even people in the fandom know that though they might reach No.1 on music charts through their new single, in the industry, it will not make them well respected top stars. When Nickhun was dating an ordinary woman on MNET, 2PM’s fans wrote “That’s my man’s business*”, and some fans of Super Junior said, “It’s hubby’s outside activity*” about member’s individual activities. With the decline of commercial influence from the fandom, they can’t completely have their idol group anymore. As their idols knock on drama and entertainment’s door*, and do more performances overseas than in their country, they will have to watch over their “business*”.
* that it’s just work and nothing else
* refers to these 2 sentences
