Ok, so many of you probably already know what happened. If not , here are the
I was a fan of Se7en, and STILL AM.
But I had to write about this. The thing he has done is wrong on so many levels.
First of all, he has a girlfriend (which is a freaking goddess tbh), and to even think about going there is kind of unbelievable. I mean they are together for 10 years, and I find them to be a perfect couple (or so it seemed in the public eye), so I guess that's why I can't believe he would cheat?
Second, why are some fans still so delusional to say: Oh, he's a man, he's a celeb, he has needs etc... I know he's a celeb, so shouldn't he be aware, that media will follow them probably forever. (and I do find that fact sad, since it's not easy to deal with crazy papps all the time). He's a man and has needs, I understand this part very well. But LET'S NOT FORGET that he is on DUTY! I mean I would approve this if artist who don't have a girlfriend, and are NOT serving military used these kind of services, because the company doesn't allow them to date etc. But he is in the military atm.
I don't know how many of you are familiar with this fact, but the war between South and North Korea was never finished. It's basically still going on, and the actual fight can start anytime. Thus, it's very important for every man to go to the military.
Now 3rd thing, celebs already have so many benefits, and doing stuff like this make other non-celebrity soldiers look like fools. I mean even if they are injured while training, they'll have to finish it, but if it was a celeb, he could be excused. But regarding this issue, I think that the government should be blamed, because they are the ones who came up with the law. From my point of view they should treat every soldier the same, no matter what they do for living.
4th, I don't think it's smart of YG to stay quiet in this type of situation. But someone mentioned that YG said he will never interfere in the scandals his artists make, and that he'll let them deal with it, and take consequences if needed. So if this is true, than fine. Do whatever you want YG, but I don't think this will reflect well on your company tbh.
5th and the most angering thing is that netizens are bringing up the old scandals, like Daesungs. WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS!? If Dae saw these comments he might just go back to the stage of depression that he struggled with during that time. And it's just mean, I would like to slap those people.
6th the reporters were really rude too, but I guess that's their job. They did take it too far, because media always exaggerates. But Se7en shouldn't have assaulted that man, regarding how mad he was.
So all in all, I will still support Se7en as AN ARTIST (but judging by the comments netizen made his career is done in Korea :/ ), but I'm very disappointed. And another reminder, this does not go only for Choi Dong-wook but for everyone else who went there.
