Actor Yoo Oh Sung was asked what he dreamt of achieving as an actor and he chose respect. "In Korean society, I often notice that whenever governmental or societal scandals erupt, there is suddenly an explosion of entertainment scandals that are released. In the end, I just don't want actors being used so easily by society for these things."
1. [+716, -120] Whenever a governmental scandal comes out, celebrities suddenly start doing drugs, getting divorces, and going on public dates.
2. [+680, -173] Isn't that why Rain and Kim Tae Hee's scandal came out... because the congressmen passed pension....... shhhh!
3. [+586, -146] I noticed this as well during Seo Taiji and Lee Ji Ah's scandal. There were several other scandals that came out at the same time. I think this goes the same in any country. The entertainment industry is used to distract the public and cover up anything else that's more important. There are way too many instances of this happening to call it a mere coincidence.
4. [+59, -22] I'm honestly tired of conspiracy theories. It doesn't make sense for a celebrity to go out drunk, get in the car, and hit someone just because someone told them to so they can cover for another governmental scandal.
5. [+49, -36] I don't believe in these conspiracy theories either. In what world would celebrities go out and do drugs, drunk drive, and murder people just to cover governmental scandals ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
- Haven't you noticed that most of the scandals were events that took place months or years ago but are conveniently released to the public at the same time as a governmental scandal?
