Many fans were surprised by Yoochun's bold move, as they went on a rant via an online community board talking about how Justin Bieber also tattooed Selena Gomez's face on his left arm as well, then failed to get it entirely removed once they separated. In a previous interview with GQ Magazine, Justin Bieber allegedly mentioned, "I tried to erase Selena's face but the ink continues to remain."
Netizens' comments included, "I'm sorry to say this to someone who is getting married soon, but why opt for such a huge tattoo? What if you split ways?", "Should've gotten the tattoo after being properly discharged from the military. That's straight up violation right there", "I hope for your safe return", "So did he make up his mind to not act anymore..? That tattoo is going to be a huge distraction", "Getting a tattoo while serving in the army... that's a major issue."
