The interview Park Seo Joon conducted seven years ago sparked a heated debate online.
In 2014, Park interviews that he wished his future wife would stay at home and look after the family. “I was raised in such a household, so I want that for my kid too,” he said. “The concept of life is established when we are a child. Kids who weren’t loved tend to have problems when they grow older. Either they have a hard time with relationships or become criminals in the worst-case scenario.”
“I will be a good bad, but children need mother next to them. It may not be the correct answer, but it’s the correct answer for me now,” he added.
When asked about his taste in women, he shared, “I like women that I can protect. I like ladies who bother me and make me worry.”
However, when his past resurfaced online, some people expressed negative opinions. “His statement can be problematic. According to that, kids who are raised by a single parent or their grandparents or orphans are all possible criminals,” one wrote. Another person wrote, “That’s a patriarchal and outdated belief.”
On the other hand, some took a neutral attitude, saying, “He just said what he wants. What’s wrong with that?”
Meanwhile, Park Seo Joon is currently filming the film Concrete Utopia.
