JYJ's Jaejoong is being criticized for making a misogynistic statement. 


According to a fan who attended the singer's concert on January 22, Jaejoong shocked fans as he said, "All you guys who just booed probably don't have boyfriends, right? Currently, the birthrate is low in our country. Pregnancy before marriage is not even a bad thing nowadays. It seems like there are a lot of good male fans here, so get their number and you know? And since this [venue] is near universities, there are a lot [of guys] outside."

The fan took out her anger and disappointment on the Facebook page, 'Misogyny in Korea', and explained that she was greatly turned off by Jaejoong's offensive statement, referring to women as a birth-giving tool. The fan also pointed out that the low birthrate in Korea is not the fault of women alone, and that a one-night stand is definitely not the answer to the issue. 


Netizens also joined in to criticize, commenting, "He's crazy... I thought I read it wrong", "He has to be careful of his words", "Does he want his fans to have a sex party after his concert or something? He does not know what to say and not to say", "Did he think that as a joke? He must think his fans are fools."

    Actually, if you understand Korean and listen to what he said, you understand that he actually said that women are special because they are the ones who give birth to children. Some fans told him they won't get married because of him, so he asked them, 'Please date, get married, and have children.' He then jokingly said, 'The birth rate in our country is low.'

    He doesn't respect women , he is like all players, they don't respect women. I'm amazed how can his girlfriends defend his words . They have no morals.  His fangirls don't even respect themselves

    I'm sorry but i'm a female and i'm a sexual person sorry if i'm being misogynist but i'd like to be in a sex party i apologize since as a woman i shoudn't think of sex or desires and no man should talk about sex and women in the same sentence that's inmoral, i mean he clearly said go fuck and get pregnant right? how dare he? we woman only have sex when we want to or not have sex at all that's what we want because sex and men are evil.

    FALSE NEWS ALERT: There's an audio file of this concert on youtube. It starts at around 58:00 He started the convo out with telling fans how their love makes him still feel like he is living young. Then, he was jokingly calling out fans for telling him to not get married while they dated, got married, pregnant, and had babies, pointing out that once a fan at a fan-meeting said that she was a fan of him for 10 years, and then immediately followed that comment with "but I got married." So, he suggested that instead of fans banning him from getting married, they should all just do what they want. He did JOKINGLY say: "the national birth rate is low, and that's your fault! *insert audience laughter* So, instead of feeling bad to me, just GO! *insert more audience even louder laughter*" Then, he talked about the guys at the venue, and the concert going late. And after a couple of boos from the audience, he said, "Sorry. I'm sorry. I'm a good person." So, yeah. He probably shouldn't have said what he said because it was indeed insensitive in that some people are more conservative than he is and don't feel comfortable with these topics. BUT, there is no misogyny! He did not imply that women are birthing machines, but he is EMPOWERING them to not feel sorry to him and just go live the life that they want to live.

    Do you usually get this emotional over comments online? If commenting this on an article is your idea of "disgusting" I would love to see you in the real world dealing with real life issues.
