Controversy resurfaces over Park Seo Joon's old interview


The controversy resurfaced over Park Seo Joon's remarks from his old interview in 2014. 

On June 27th, Park Seo Joon's remarks in his past interview caught netizens' eyes. In this interview, the actor talks about his ideal type. He said he won't change his thoughts on his ideal future spouse that she should leave her job to take care of her family. 

He continued, "I grew up in a family like that so I also think my kids should be raised by their mother. I heard the one's childhood forever shapes the person's perspective on life. It seems unloved childhood leads to problematic adult life. Either he won't have good social skills, or he could end up being a felon to be extreme. I will be their good fatherly figure, but the children need their mom. It could be wrong but to me, this is an answer now." 

He then replied to the question asking what features are attractive to him, "I find women who bring about my protective instinct attractive. I feel like if they are tall, they are going to be fine living alone. I like women who keep me worried. And skinny women tend to be like that." 

Netizens reacted: "What lol I'll never look at him the same way again smh"

"Well, what an old, patriarchal belief." 

"How does a child having a working mother automatically lead to having unloved childhood? That's a big leap."

"I'm pretty sure not all his fans have had loving childhood...He should have been more thoughtful with his words"

"I understand he wants someone to be a stay-at-home mom but saying someone could end up being a felon? That crossed the line" 

"He seems to not know how his words would hurt many people. I see what his perspectives are like"

What do you think?

i don't agree with his opinions, but it is his opinions and not mine to agree with. wanting one in the relationship to be stay-at-home is still a very popular opinion between many men and women. if both in the relationship agrees then that's not anybody else's business.

his opinions on attractive features are also something he's entitled to have. i agree that his answer may be inappropriate, whether this be translation errors or if he was straight up just too honest about his not publicly appropriate likes.

also can we just point out that this was in 2014? that was 7 years ago. his current answers to these questions may be very different.

I grew up with love from both of my parents, but both were also working... my adult life is not problematic. Such a silly belief.
