Sex columnist Kwak Jung Eun recently tweeted: "I got in my taxi and as soon as I sat down, the taxi driver asked me if I was going anywhere fun this weekend. I told him that I was on my way to work and he said back, 'Do even pretty princesses like you work?' I was going to go all the way to Seoul station but I think I'm going to get off and hop on a subway."

"I was uncomfortable with a stranger judging my looks on a taxi I was on for transportation as well as his strange premise that pretty women shouldn't work. I was also put off by the nickname 'princess', treating me like a little girl."


1. [+2,825, -129] I think the taxi driver just called her that because he thought of her as his own daughter... Does she really think he said that because she's pretty or something?

2. [+2,315, -137] She's seriously a mental case. There's nothing wrong with what the taxi driver said. I also hate how she treats anyone who doesn't agree with her like how they're somehow inferior intelligent wise. Her tone sounds like, "Really? I have to explain it to you because you're that dumb?"

3. [+2,161, -98] ㅋㅋ Must be hard living life so frustrated all the time

4. [+281, -9] So a taxi driver being nice and calling her a princess is putting down women but she can go around and make sexually suggestive comments about male celebrities and expects it to be passed off as 'cool'? This is what you call backwards feminism. (She once asked singer Jang Giha on TV what he was like in bed)

5. [+244, -12] People who are actually pretty don't care whether someone compliments them like this or not.

6. [+219, -12] I wonder if she'd still get mad if a hot Italian man went up to her and said, "Even a pretty senorita like you works?"

7. [+219, -11] Obviously the taxi driver was just being nice to a customer. I'd just be like thanks and move on with my day;; I seriously don't understand this woman, even as a fellow woman.

8. [+204, -9] Talk about an overreaction ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

9. [+199, -8] I'm 31 years old and even I know to just move on with my day. I would've said something like, "Right? It's the weekend so it sucks to be working..." The taxi driver was obviously trying to make small talk with her but she takes it so seriously.. I bet she made a nasty facial expression at him too.

10. [+151, -8] As a woman myself, I fail to understand her point of view. If even the littlest of things like this makes her uncomfortable, she should not leave her house and just work from home. She's so sensitive.

1. [+134, -3] She foams at the mouth over a taxi driver giving her a compliment and calls it misogyny while she goes on TV and makes sexually suggestive comments against men. Backwards feminism.

2. [+98, -2] Why is someone who clearly has mental issues out on TV as a sex columnist or whatever? Broadcast channels are obviously using her as viewer bait. Please realize the implications your TV shows have on society.

3. [+76, -6] The journalist's sense ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+52, -3] ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+48, -0] Is she on a downward spiral now?

6. [+20, -2] I don't have a right to say anything if she herself felt offended by it. And I'm sure that many other women would feel the same way in that situation. However, Kwak Jung Eun has a history of hypocritical actions so it's ridiculous that she's making a big deal out of this. Just because she's a sex columnist, she makes sexual comments against other celebrities on TV and then acts like a victim while blaming the PDs whenever a controversy erupts to avoid responsibility. She's just extremely hypocritical.
