Hwang Bo: Younger lover? The conclusion is still like a child.


Hwang Bo revealed her thoughts on dating younger men. She made her brief response to dating younger men on KBS's 'Happy Together', saying that the conclusion was "child".

Hwang Bo, who is currently partnered with the younger Hyun Joong on WGM said that "No matter how manly and adult like the younger man acts, the conclusion is that he is still like a child" in response the question asking her what were her thoughts on dating younger men. Her response reveals her somewhat negative thoughts about dating younger men.

*Credits: Empas News, Joy News 24*

Thoughts: This piece of news has actually stirred up quite a lot of reactions; some neutral, some negative in nature. Some fans think that she's referring to Hyun Joong as a child and began defending him, which is a natural reaction for fans. However, I think that she's referring to younger men in general, and not pin pointing out Hyun Joong in particular. I personally think that she still thinks of Hyun Joong as a dongsaeng, not as a boyfriend. She has always said that she never really gave much thought to younger men as lovers, considering them to be not as matured as herself. Hyun Joong is someone who she has to treat as a husband, and he is but one person. And I think that he does give her some insight as to what dating a younger man would be like. But that doesn't mean that her thoughts have to change, neither does it mean that her thoughts won't change. This is her current opinion, and we'll just have to watch and see if her opinion does change.

At first reading this made me sorta sad but after thinking about it for awhile, I understand what she means. Older/younger couple is a hard relationship because both of the people are going through different life stages. Also, their interests would be different. Like HJ w/ his manhwa, which HB couldn't understand lol.
But I think it was too much for her to use the word 'child'.

Oh! And I totally agree that HB still treats HJ as a dongsaeng. People say HJ should be better towards HB & you can see his efforts. But I think HB also needs to work on not treating him as a dongsaeng if they want to make their "relationship" better.

i have yet to meet a male of our species, of any age range, who is not a 'child'
^^;
seriously, tho...don't men in general expect their wives to take care of them, one way or the other?
how is that different from a child?
at least your kids would someday grow up and move out...
LOL

Yea Agree with ya..but Well u noe our Hwang Buin Is a str8-ward & Real person... SOmetimes Fans juz tink too much of everyTin...

I agree with Dee that all men wants to be mothered regardless of the age. I know because I married one who is now aged 40 years old. Oh, by the way, I am an older wife too.

After seven years of marriage, he calls me 'Mummy' just like our two boys.

I agree that it is a general statement and not refering to Hyun Joong in particular.

They are indeed one of the most entertaining couple that sailed across my 'screen' anyway.

Manseh! JoongBo!

mwuahahaha, all men are childish. it's a fact.
netizens think too much
at first i was sorta sad about this but then i realize she probably means it's not easy dating someone younger...especially when that young guy has so much fun acting childish with his peers! so maybe some of the stuff he does is unrelateable to her and vice versa.
still, i don't think she meant an ill feelings towards HJ. she just probably means in general

All i know she always sees him as younger person. But that person makes her want to date a younger guy for once...if she means in bad way, why will she date someone younger after seeing HJ?

I think she does a bad job of promoting WGM. Obviously any questions related to "younger men" will be taken as referring to the show in some way.

Part of the reason viewers watch is they get attached to a couple and have their own hopes that it will turn from reel to real. She does a really good job of turning viewers off. She needs to learn to answer these questions better or more vaguely if this is really how she feels. I think career wise this pairing has certainly helped hers.

Most of her interviews like this are disappointing. I'd rather she didn't answer at all than to read stuff like this.

i honestly think that that post by MUIZE alone should pretty much sum up the REAL MEANING of what HwangBo said.. it's just unfortunate that people will continue to see her in a bad light just because they don't understand her.

she's an unconventional girl.. and the words aren't as important as the real meaning behind them.

I've been a fan of hwangbos for like way before WGM and I know that she's just being really professional.. she divides a clean life between work and personal life.... so I dont think people should read too much in to this. ALso as much as Im in love with joongbo and wish they'd be a couple in real life.. we should all know it is CLEARLY IMPOSSIBLE.. however what we can do is enjoy their hilarious make believe marriage...and that they will be on good terms with each other after the show finishes e.t.c the most we can hope for is a good friendship....
Im sorry I think hwangbos professionalism has affected me too!

Hwangbo really worries me! She need to know how to answer Q's without getting anti's! Im not worried about what she said because we can all see that she treats HJ as a cute dongseng so I already knew these were her true feelings... but she didnt have to make it clear to all of HJ fans coz no good is gonna come out of it! Hwangbo take more care of yourself!!! I hate it when I hear she recievs negetavie comments

she is a fighter and always shows her honesty and true self to everybody unfortunately she is surviving at a "fantasy" and "fake" entertainment world which makes her easily getting hurt and getting anti's.
i am kind of worshipping her honest and true personality esp. it is hard to be seen on the entertainment industry !!!!!

HJ starts showing his manly side and passions to his buin lately.
i believe it will move her heart somedays..... can't wait to see their 100th day photo shoot sunday !!!!!!

Sometimes I do wish she was with someone who cared about her more and could most importantly EXPRESS that to her! I mean as much as I love watching the entertainment from Joongbo... maybe in real llife jujin and HB MAY get married (later on ofcourse as I enjoy WGM)
then junjin could take deep care of her... i guess I just love hwangbo too much

but seriously she shouldnt say this kind of thing on public sincewe know that hyungjoong has a big fanbase and those that are a big fan of him might misunderstand her.. oh well good luck to her

I agree with the anonymous poster who commented at "August 22, 2008 6:47 AM." Her interviews tend to be a huge turn-off.

I think it's time for HJ to step it up in the relationship. He has to take charge and make plans. I think HJ is too nice and considerate that I want him to be selfish at times. I just want him to open up to HB more so that she realizes that HJ is an adult too, who can just make decisions as well.

Seriously, I don't care what HB says cause it's a show. She's got to keep her emotions at bay or else she'll really lose her job/future. I just hope that she doesn't shut HJ off and gets to see his other side... I mean, behind his 4D personality.

Alexandria said...

I agree with most of these posts. I mean, take it from HB's perspective. She's already said that HJ opened her eyes a bit, and that age didn't matter. That opened up a can of worms. Now people won't let up. I don't know the actual question asked, but it seems like people want to know more about her personal life than the actual show. (I don't follow the Korean media...does this happen with the other couples too?)

Let's say she says she'd be up for dating someone LIKE HJ. Then people start assuming they're dating, they say nasty stuff about her being too old (29 is NOT OLD!!!) and then things get ugly. She's just picked a statement, and stuck to her guns. Was it the best statement? Maybe not, but she is at least consistant. It's too bad people can't just enjoy the show. :(

Why does HB keep putting her foot in her mouth? I know that she is trying to protect HJ's image so that his fans won't think they are dating in real life but this is getting a little ridiculous. The more she talks like this openly the more I am going to see them as older sister/younger brother rather than older wife/younger husband. Sorry for talking like this. Please don't beleive I'm defending/protecting HJ as I beleive the man could defend himself. But I think she keeps saying things in the media that are bonder line negative about HJ or dating younger men while all he does is say positive things about her/dating older women. I know she's not talking about him directly but he is the first person that comes to mind when she makes such statements because of the show the two are in.

Hwang Bo posted a message in her personal homepage regarding this news. Actually she was talking about her friend's story instead of what she feel towards HJ. However, the "Happy Together" PD cut all she said except "he is still like a child". Actually she said she will consider the relationship with the one younger than her.

She is really feel upset and angry after she heard the news from friends. That's why she needs to stand up and say something in her homepage.

Kratae said...

Chonsa, please please do something about this article. This will make ppl think she wrong. She is good person and don't deserve this.

It annoys me how any HJ fans can find anything bad to say about hwangbo! She takes care of him soooo well, got a cold from knitting a scarf (which he didnt keep to his end of the promise on), she doesnt jump at him (if inyoung was coupled with him she would), the whole fish incident e.t.c HJ fans can reaaly annoy me sometimes coz if anyone has the short end of the stick, its defo hwangbo! sorry I love them both as much as each other so when I stand from an objective persons point of view... thats how I see it!

AINT SHE POSTED ON HER FANSITE EXPAINING THE TRUTH THAT SHE HAVE BEEN TWISTED BY WHAT SHE SAID AFTER THE SHOW EDITING? SHE WAS ACTUALLY SAYING THAT SHE WOULD LIKE TO TRY DATING A YOUNGER ONE AND THE "negative" MEANING HAVE BEEN SHOWN ON THE SHOW WAS A SHARING OF HER FRIEND NOT ABOUT HER OWN~

Anonymous said...

I'm sorry but Hwangbo has been in this business long enough to know WHAT to say and WHAT NOT to say. It's not like she's new to the entertainment industry. She knows that producers will edit stuff. They do it all the time on WGM. She needs to stop answering questions about younger men or keep her answers simple/short so that they can't get twisted. Now, she's gotta work overtime/do damage control to win back some fans/calm down SS501 fans. I love her personality and am beginning to think she is too nice for this tough business.

katty81 said...

ya she in this for a time now but they cant edit everything u know...outside others wat will think of her? her those Anti-xiao fanz there they dun like her since they know hyun joong was her partner in the wgm!!!so u if the show really ended wonder how far can they go? but really like them as a couple for the real in life but i think it is mission impossible!!!
