Lee Joon : Male body exposure being considered cool while female exposure is seen as cheap sucks

Lee Joon doesn't think it's right that male body exposure is celebrated while female body exposure is looked down upon.

On the 24th's episode of MBC's 'Radio Star', the panel and the guests started to talk about Clara's revealing outfits. During the conversation, Lee Joon pointed out, "I get sad because I think people are really hard to female celebrities. When male celebrities take their shirts off, people say, 'Oh, they're so cool', but when female celebrities do it, people say, 'she looks so cheap'."

When Clara added, "He's right. People say, she's just trying to get attention", Lee Joon agreed and said, "To be honest, I took my shirt off to get attention, too. I admit that I did that. But I think telling that to women is just rude."

Allkpop

1. [+344, -14] Lee Joon seems like a decent person

2. [+294, -15] You're the jjang

3. [+287, -19] I could tell that he seems like a respectable person with everything he's said in the past

I've always liked Joon, but this just raised my opinion of him by like... a million. Totally surprised, and very impressed.

THANK YOU. Now please convince your other idol friends to start addressing the ridiculous standards netizens have.
frantastic 25th-Jul-2013 02:58 am (UTC)
We should declare him winner of the omona bias games tbh

lieselmeminger 25th-Jul-2013 03:00 am (UTC)
he's my ultimate male bias and he continues to prove why, bless your soul joonie
hipployta 25th-Jul-2013 03:03 am (UTC)
It's cheap PR when anyone does it...good job on addressinh the double standard

I thought it was 50-50 that netizens would either attack him or love him...I should have known they wouldn't attack him

even though mblaq isn't that popular, joon is pretty popular in korea and ppl really like him so i don't think he'd get bashed anyway. he's so lovable
markthatcoin 25th-Jul-2013 03:03 am (UTC)
<3 Joonie knows what's up
dorawa 25th-Jul-2013 03:05 am (UTC)
Too bad hes a creepy stalker ;;; but respect for him just went up
22by7 25th-Jul-2013 03:36 am (UTC)
Is this about the girlfriend/Go Young Wook thing. I forever side-eyed Joon for it just on principle, but then found out that GYW is some kind of paedo creeper...
in_noctem 25th-Jul-2013 03:06 am (UTC)
I loved that he spoke up about this but the pessimist in me can't help but think that the reactions would have been way different if a female (versus a well-loved male idol like Joon) had brought it up. But I hope this inspires others to speak up about the double standards.
921227 25th-Jul-2013 03:27 am (UTC)
If a female idol brought it up, it would definitely blow over as her trying to justify exposing her body or gross comments about how female idols know what they're getting into/they probably sleep with company staff etc UGH to the max
mallangmallang 25th-Jul-2013 03:08 am (UTC)
Aww, I made this post too, but I forgot to add the netizen comments :(
Joon just gets better and better ♥

Also, Onew tweeted "Lee! Chang! Sun! Jjang" so I think Onew has the same idea as Joon~ :)

omggggg that makes sense. their beautiful friendship :')
candycrush808 25th-Jul-2013 03:09 am (UTC)
For a guy with a pabo image he's talking a lot of sense lately.
awsteven 25th-Jul-2013 03:16 am (UTC)
i feel like a lot of idols with the pabo image tend to be pretty insightful or sensitive irl
hearttaek 25th-Jul-2013 03:13 am (UTC)
Mad props for speaking up about it.

He gets lots of love of from netizens. He's amazing so im not surprised. On that note, any other idol that gets as much positive comments from netizens? kyuhyun seems to be well-liked. Lately, henry too

Lovable Pabo that he is. He's always given me the impression of being genuine and real and honest... though sometimes too honest.

Here though, I love that he uses himself as an example and doesn't try to sugarcoat what he does.
cottonowl 25th-Jul-2013 10:15 am (UTC)
Mte on everything!
