MBLAQ's Lee Joon said he regretted his comment saying that the dating scene with idols was like an animal kingdom.

On a past show of SBS' 'Incarnation', he'd said, "A and B would date, and then A would go date C, and then B would go date D. It's like an animal kingdom. It all happens within the same group." [meaning A/D are in the same group, and B/C are in the same group]

When asked about it on the July 24 episode of MBC's 'Radio Star', he said, "To be honest, after I said that, I'm going crazy. I can't go to a music show." Kim Gu Ra asked, "Because you can't face the others?", and he answered, "What would they think of me?".

Kyuhyun pointed out, "All the idols saw that broadcast", and MC Kim Kuk Jin asked, "If you knew what was going to happen, why did you say it?". Lee Joon answered, "I'm always like that. I never think about the consequences of what will happen after I say something."

Yoon Jong Shin clarified, "You actually meant that their relationships get tangled up", and Lee Joon admitted, "When I thought of it, it came up immediately in my head that it was an 'Animal Kingdom'. But I realized afterwards that I said something I was really sorry about saying."

Kyuhyun put in, "The netizens said that you said something that was very good. But your idols friends thought, 'he thinks of me as an animal'." When Yoon Jong Shin asked, "Did you see the people who you were talking about?", Lee Joon admitted, "I did." Kim Gu Ra said, "But don't you have the rights to say something like this?". 

Lee Joon answered, "But still, I should have kept quiet about some things." When asked if these idols were ones close to him, he said, "They weren't."

I'm sure this happens often because as someone in the spot light, dating a "normal" person is probably not the easiest thing to do. Also, going to music shows and promoting so frequently you're bound to run into people that you're interested in. Also, you probably spend more time with them than you get regular interaction with any one outside the "idol" lifestyle. I think his perspective wasn't one of "maybe that's not true", I think it's more, "this is my job, I can't say things that will make it harder to do my job." BUT, he was just being honest. No shame in that! ;

Well actually I think he kinda right about the dating process. Isn't it going to be awkward dating the same person as your team members? He made a good point but maybe he could lost his friends because of what he said. Well it's been said so nothing can be done.

i understand lee joon for that,i think he is straight guy and he doesn't want to sneak around specially if the girl is his friend gf,yeah..he is tactless,but for me he is just being honest,that's it!

Come on, now. Do idols think the public are all naive and innocent? Everyone knows this happens! It even happens to non-celebrities, so it should not be a total shock. Just because Joon stated the obvious does not mean he was trying to refer to them as "animals". There is no such thing as, "you cannot date him/her because we used to date" rule. Okay, there is such rule between some friendships and it depends on how and why a couple broke up. But even then, there is no such rule, and when you are in the entertainment industry, there are just so many of them. There is a lot, but a person is more likely to date someone they can see easily without having to sneak around too much to get to them.
