On the August 15 airing of 'Please Take Care of My Refrigerator', chef Yoo Chang Joon talked about his celebrity daughters. 


He first revealed, "Nowadays people call me 'nation's father-in-law' because of my kids. My oldest daughter is actress Gong Seung Yeon and my youngest daughter is TWICE's Jungyeon. I can't help but smile when I look at the two."

Yoo Chang Joon continued, "If my youngest one Jungyeon brought home a boyfriend, I don't think I could take it." 


Uh-oh, Jungyeon's boyfriend better watch out for Papa Yoo!

dont worry mate, chances are big that she is into girls - not boys. so you dont have to worry abt her bringing them boys home

Does this mean his older daughter IS bringing home a boyfriend? I am still hoping for Seung Yeon and Jong Hyun of CNBlue to be continuing their honeybee sweetness from WGM, Yoo Appa became "nation's father-in-law" because of his time on WGM with Gong Seung Yeon and Lee Jong Hyun!

If i brought home a bf my dad would kill him lmao or ask too many questions and scare him lol.

Typical example of normalizing male control. It's always the men who are asked what they would do if their daughter/sistar started dating, and it's somehow considered a hilarious joke when they say they would absolutely not approve or tolerate it. As if it's not up to the women to decide, as if the women are the property of the men and the men decide what the women can do with their personal lives. In this article the dad does not say he would stop it, only that he couldn't take it, which I guess means he would have difficulties accepting it. But this kind of attitude is still part of the mentality according to which men watch over girls' or women's dating/sex lives. Mothers are never asked whether they are OK with their sons starting dating. It's a classic joke in films that a dad asks his daughter's new boyfriend that "what is your intention with my daughter", or he might even threaten the boy and tell him not to hurt his daughter. But you never ever see mothers say that to their son's new girlfriend.

Woow!!! That was profound!! I think you've described a pretty interesting psychological question. It is true Mothers usually do not question/ are not asked about their opinion on their son's dating issues! Weird!

I think it kinda depends on the context though. Women are asked the same questions about their sons bringing home a girlfriend, but the answers are usually not physical. The running joke with moms and their sons' girlfriends is that they never see eye to eye. So the result is essentially the same, but the expression of it is different, with the relation between the BF and the girl's mom having a physical tone, as opposed to the mental tone between women in the opposite situation.

between the BF and the girl's father*

Go, Gloria Steinem, go

"But you never ever see mothers say that to their son's new girlfriend." ------ so just coz moms are generally more chill than dads, dads should be blamed for showing normalizingly male control?

eager_beaver hiroonakamura Tuesday, August 16, 2016

Pretty much, yes.

intricate eager_beaver Tuesday, August 16, 2016

unwilling to look at the flipside huh? or unable?

eager_beaver intricate Tuesday, August 16, 2016

Jessicahbae Tuesday, August 16, 2016

who cares ?

bergaline1 Jessicahbae Tuesday, August 16, 2016

Si vous vous en fichez pourquoi lire l'article et mettre un commentaire ridicule. Vous manquez de maturité

SahanaE Tuesday, August 16, 2016

but Gong Seung Yeon isn't the oldest, they have another older sister.

booitsjwu SahanaE Tuesday, August 16, 2016

Their other sister is in the middle. Seungyeon is the oldest and Jungyeon is the youngest.

intricate booitsjwu Tuesday, August 16, 2016

What does the middle one do? College or something?

luvtokki intricate Tuesday, August 16, 2016
