"People were trying to touch Naeun and Gunhoo": The reason why celebrities hide their kids from the public

AKP STAFF

A netizen shared how people reacted when they spotted soccer player Park Joo Ho's kids, Naeun and Gunhoo, in public. 

On July 16th, a post on an online community made its way around the web after revealing how people reacted when they saw Naeun and Gunhoo in public. The writer wrote, "My mom saw them in Ulsan. It seemed Naeun and Gunhoo's mother came out for a walk with her kids. But then people were trying to touch them and called their names for their attention." 


"Apparently, the kids were annoyed so they were crying and shunning away. Their mother was asking people to not touch them. My mom said she just watched them from a distance, saying they indeed looked adorable. But I was stressed out just by listening to her story. I understand they are famous babies, but why would you try to touch them?" 

Many netizens were angered by this anecdote, criticizing those people. "They only built rapport in their head smh", "There are so many people lacking common senses", "Poor babies". But not everyone was on board as one of the comments sparked debate by saying, "It's more appalling to sell your children on TV for the money. The unpopular people are selling their kids' cuteness for the money, so they should bear the cost."

I totally disagree with this and find it bold and ignorant. How many people would invade even an adult celebrity's personal time by trying to touch them? If they're not at a formal event obviously it's not okay to approach them in this way and ESPECIALLY because they're children. Adults need to learn to be adults and stop finding ways to dehumanize celebrities. I mean sheesh, the mother doesn't even want her face on TV.

It's an interesting debate whether it is the fault of the parents for more or less "forcing" their children to be on tv, or if it is the fault of the audience for acting this way. Having your kids shown on tv should not mean the parents agree to have the audience try to touch their kids in public, if people just act with common sense then showing your kids on tv is not a problem.

However, in this day and age (and historically as well) we know not all people act with common sense, so the parents have to realize something like this will happen if they are popular.
