Singer Lim Chang Jung gave an official statement of apology after he posted a photo of his pregnant wife driving on his social media which caused much alarm and controversy.


His agency, NH Media, stated through a press release on March 7, "The account has not been deleted, only the photo has been removed."  They added, "It seems the photo has been deleted due to netizens' negative comments as well as not to hinder his wife psychologically with the incoming responses."


Lim Chang Jung commented on the issue, "After having dinner with an acquaintance nearby, my wife volunteered to be my designated driver.  She took safety precautions and obeyed traffic laws.  It seems there had been some misunderstanding with the photo, as it was only meant to be a joking matter.  I apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused and would like to thank everyone for my wife's safety concerns."


Netizens commented, "Is this even an issue really?" "I don't get it. His wife was clearly aware he had gone out for drinks and she was the one who volunteered to drive him home because she was worried about him. Are pregnant women not allowed to drive???" "They're tackling him for no apparent reason..." "When I was due, I drove myself to the hospital to give birth. This is no big deal!"

oh Koreas, why do so many of you still think it is 1961 right now? Women ARE allowed to drive, even when they are pregnant.

Unless shes on somekinda Doctor's orders not to drive because say like shes a high risk pregnancy. And not based off of the "old ways" Whats wrong with a pregnant wife driving?  Like others said what if at that moment he wasnt fit to drive (i.e.drunk) and his wife was. Why not??

So netizens would have preferred that HE drive after he had been out drinking?  Did Korea pass a law that pregnant women can't drive now and nobody told Korea?

Pregnancy is not an illness...therefore your everyday routine should not come to a screeching halt when you get pregnant.

So, pregnant women can't do anything now? They must ask permission to be "allowed" to do something? lol

Oh god, this made me upset! People needs to get lives. Are they 12 years old thinking pregnant woman can't drive?

Sigh. I think what the people in the comments are missing is the they are saying why isnt he driving instead of his heavely pregnant wife.But i think if his wife wanted to drive....so what. If her doctor thinks its ok . Fine.

He's not driving because he had been drinking.

heeheehe Tuesday, March 7, 2017

Lmao okay now pregnant women can't drive, and apparently women need permission from men to drive?? I'm tired of this shit
