Netizens have voiced a range of opinions: “Is dating at such a beautiful age a sin?” “Apologizing for dating? What exactly did they do wrong? Did they commit a crime?” “This is bizarre… This whole faux-dating with their stars needs to be avoided.”

Yet, some offer a different perspective, suggesting, “There must be a reason for the fans’ negative reactions,” and noting, “Dating right before a tour and album comeback, at such a critical time.” Backing this up, some comments read: “She went on a date without a mask and in the same clothes she wore for a schedule. I get why some fans are disappointed,” and “Labeling this as an apology is a bit much. It’s just what she wrote to her fans.”
