It seems like Jo Se Ho's 'nation's absentee' title will stick until the end of his days. The comedian is still being made fun of for something that was said on a variety program a long, long time ago.
Singer Kim Hong Guk had asked Jo Se Ho on a past episode of 'Quiz to Change the World' why he was absent from Ahn Jae Wook's wedding. A flustered Jo Se Ho had responded that he couldn't go to the wedding of someone he didn't know. Ever since then, people stuck the comedian with a permanent absentee sticker, joking that he was absent for virtually everything.
Even Big Bang's Taeyang has jumped on the bandwagon--though a tad late--and found some satisfaction in poking fun at Jo Se Ho. A screen capture of a comment Taeyang left on Jo Se Ho's latest Instagram post has gone viral.
Netizens had jokingly commented on Jo Se Ho's Instagram post, "Why didn't you come to my wedding," "I'm in the hospital why didn't you come visit me," "Why didn't you come to Beyonce's birthday party?" "I can't go to sleep, please come over and rock me to sleep," and, "Did you even go anywhere?" among others. But the best one of all was from Taeyang, who commented, "Hyung why didn't you come to our fan meet in Japan..?"
We would like to know, too. Why, oh why, Jo Se Ho, did you not go to Big Bang's fan meet in Japan?!?
