A fan account of what Jaejoong said at his concert:
I deliberated a lot over whether to do this I've decided to criticize the idol I'm a fan of. I just got back from his concert and during the talking portion, he said this as a joke: "All of you who said boo are the ones with no boyfriends, right? Our country has a low birthrate these days... which means that nowadays, pre-marital pregnancies aren't a bad thing but a blessing. There seem to be a lot of decent male fans here so get their numbers and you know what to do, right? You know what I'm talking about? And this concert hall is near a college campus so there are a ton of (motels) out front." It was personally a moment where my image of him as my idol was shattered. A woman is not a tool for giving birth. Korea's low birthrate is not because of women. The solution to a low birthrate is not pregnancies through one night stands. All of these thoughts made me think that the money I spent on his concert ticket was a waste. It makes me think that if only I was more ig norant to feminist issues, then my fantasies of him would not have been shattered in such a way. However, he's an idol, and he should know the weight of his words to each of his fans. Even if it's a concert hall full of his own fans, his lack of caution with his words has come back as a wound to me.
