Actor Kang Dong Won, now thirty six years old, talked about marriage in a recent interview.

He said, "I'm not sure if I can get married. 80% of my plans are work-related. Only 20% of my plans have to do with my personal life. I'm the type who needs to have my personal life and work life divided clearly. I don't think my personality will get better soon," seeming discouraged.


Surely women would wait in line forever for a chance at that 20% though!

    The thing about Korea though, is that the society in itself is so hypocritical xD I know coz my parents are like that. If someone is 36 years old and unmarried, rumors come about their sexuality... even though the guy could just not want to marry but it straight, society feels the need to set them up on dates, or whatevs. Especially if he goes to church regularly, those ahjummas will definitely try to set him up and crap.

    Don't stress about it. People put way too much weight on this "marriage" thing as if it's a given that people should do it. Why follow an old convention just because society expects that you're supposed to? That's not logical. Just live your live without getting legally bound to another individual.

    Its because old people are concern about their future, Who will be there to take care of him. Having a family keeps a person a reason to keep moving forward. At the end of the day eing lonely is not the happiness that we want, its the happiness that we receive from other people.

    But marriage is not a requirement for having someone there for you. One can have people around you without marriage and/or kids. One can also make babies without marriage. "Having a family keeps a person a reason to keep moving forward" is a very general statement. Many people have reason to move forward without family, for example many want to achieve great things in science and make the world a better place that way. That drives them forward. Also, assuming that family is what keeps people moving forward discounts the life experience of all those who genuinely have no desire for family life. Some people can be alone while not feeling lonely; they are not dependent on others, They are perfectly content without receiving happiness from other people.

    I really understand you comment but Achieve great things in life? How far? Till they are dead thingking to be great? Look at those celebrity who are famous already but still want to be with someone, because at the end of the day looking to other people you will envy them that you will hope that you have someone or children too. And are you sure that people will not feel lonely even they have all the things in life? Are you really sure? sorry I cant explain my comment really well Im not really good in english :D.

    People are different. Some people get fulfilment in their lives from pursuing some achievements, even if they never actually achieve that end goal. It's said that it's the journey that matters, not the destination. And when talking about people achieving things to get fulfilment I'm not exactly talking about superficial and material things like fame or a big house, even though those too can bring meaning to life. I'm talking about people achieving great things in life on a deeper level. They might work tirelessly to find a cure for cancer, and finding that more important than having a family. Others might take care of homeless kids instead of getting kids of their own. In both cases these people will save hundreds or even millions of lives because they devoted their time to something else than a family of, say, three people, Just because you can't imagine it, does not mean that those people don't exist. Not all people envy others with partners. And yes, I'm 100 % sure that some people will not feel lonely - emphasis on some. It's true that many people desire family life, but the point is that not all do that. Some people know early on that they don't want marriage and/or family, while others learn to understand later in life that they don't need a family to achieve fulfilment, but that they can achieve happiness and purpose in life in other ways.

    Not everyone seeks marriage but if the right person xomes along who understands his line of work it can work out.

    No they really wouldnt. Only teen girls think like that. Any adult woman would rather take 100% of an average man than 20% of a handsome one.
