Netizens recently came across the 54-year-old actor's comments on BoA's social media in July of 2014. She posted, "I think Arare (from the animation series 'Dr. Slump') is the best," along with a photo of herself with a fist in the air. Jo Min Ki then commented on the post as follows, which netizens found strange as the two stars were not acquainted with one another:
"Jo Min Ki: I'm actor Jo Min Ki who has the same birthday as BoA. Your glasses frames... I really want them.
BoA: Hello, sunbaenim~ ^^ The glasses frame... Should I get a pair for you? Hehe.
Jo Min Ki: No-u no-u... (holding back) We always have a birthday party on the same day with Park Jung Chul every year though... [Give me] a phone call! We're all born on 1105, scorpio blood!
BoA: Ah~~. I guess we all have the same birth date. ^^ Hehe~~ This year once again, an early congratulations to scorpios!!! Thank you for leaving a comment. ^^ Scorpios are the best~~"
Though the exchange doesn't seem very special, fans are finding it quite nefarious considering the recent news of the actor's methods of sexual harassment.
Netizens commented, "They don't even know each other yet he said he wanted her glasses frame, and then he says their birthdays are the same... What is this," "It's not easy to write a comment on the social media account of a celebrity who could be your daughter," "I got goosebumps when he said that they have their birthday parties on the same day every year," and more.
What are your thoughts on Jo Min Ki's comments?
