The latest episode of KBS2's '1 vs. 100' welcomed Jo Kwon to the show.


When the MC asked, "What kind of questions do your juniors ask you?" Jo Kwon commented, "It's usually a variety of things but I do get questions regarding dating."

The singer elaborated, "Honestly, I'm against public dating... I advise my juniors to just date in secret. If they have their own personal space, I just tell them to meet with their partners at home without getting caught."

    I respect his opinion but don't push it on others...If your friends wanna date in private let them, if they wanna go public let them. But my opinion is that true love never has to hide T.T

    While I personally love when celebrities in the Korean entertainment industry date publicly, I'm sure Jokwon has seen all the pros and cons and what happens to the celebrities themselves which is why he said that.

    Korea is becoming more and more open minded. Seolhyun and Zico are still popular as ever even though they were in a relationship. I like Jo Kwon, but I think his thinking is pretty old fashioned.

    I don't think it's old fashioned, I think it's to protect the idol and whoever they're dating from public opinion is they were dating openly. It's sad that they have to do that but fangirls/ rabid fans are crazy and think the idol is their personal possession. So if they plan to date, they'll have to do it in secret. Especially if they're not straight. This is really just protecting their own self interest.

    Agreed. Seolhyun and Zico took hard hits on social media but it really did not affect their popularity.

    I think the more people who opt to openly date from celebrities happening in Korea will have a positive impact over time. People will come to accept it. Of course, you're going to have your crazies, but most people will learn to accept it and will become a norm. A non-Korean member like a Chinese person in Kpop used to make a lot of news and interest in Korea. But now it's just another member being added to a group.

    I like how he used the non-gendered term "partner." I very much doubt girl hoobaes would be asking a guy for dating advice, so girlfriend would have worked here . . . but... you do you Jo Kwon.

    I agree that I like that he used a non-gendered term but he is friends with many people of various genders and the younger generations tend to be much less formal in private. I have no doubts he talks about dating with more than just guy friends. Others do too. Hongki mentioned in a recent interview that he and one of his female friends talk about dating so it's not that uncommon.

    Its a shame idols have to hide when dating, but i guess when there are such inhumane things called netizens who like to invade peoples privacy, then i guess they have to be so secretive

    You should stop with the university and PhD bullshit you keep using in every argument you get into. I already proved you're not PhD candidate, and if you lied about that, I'm pretty sure you're lying about attending Seoul University.

    I've said it before I will say it again and again and again. YOU do NOT go to SNU. If you did you would of been aware that the school has a lesbian Student Body President named Kim Bo Mi and an LGBT club, which you denied existed and you also said that the school doesn't allow LGBT people to attend. WRONG! You also don't live in South Korea because you claimed that gay clubs are illegal, again WRONG! There a several gay clubs up and running which have never been raided by police or shut down. This is the proof of Kim Bo Mi - koreaherald[dot]com/view[dot]php?ud=20151120000762 - Here is the proof of the LGBT club at SNU - queerinsnu[dot]com/page/eng_desk_link[dot]html - and here is the proof off all the gay clubs that are up and running that you apparently believe don't exist - travelgayasia[dot]com/seoul-gay-bars/ - You also claim to be a Buddhist but call out to God and claim that he made you. Buddhists DO NOT BELIEVE IN GOD. You CAN'T even READ Hangul when people comment to you using it. YOU ARE NOT KOREAN AND YOU DO NOT GO TO SNU.
