JOON: I think people like seeing me as an idiot, so it’s honestly kind of hard. The thing is… I’m not an idiot!! PKR: People think you’re an idiot? JOON: Whenever I come out on variety shows, they keep calling me a muscle-babo and an idiotic-idol. Even at the beginning when they introduce me - ‘Ah this person! …’
[cuts to a screen of Kim Gura playfully calling him ‘ignorant’ and therefore had an enjoyable time with Joon]
JOON: So it feels like I became an idiot from the start of the show! So I feel like… The representative of the ‘babo’ concept, so it’s sort of hard.
I fucking hate everyone calling him an idiot, MBLAQ members included. How many times does he have to say it bugs the shit out of him, honestly.
He’s right - he DOESN’T even get a chance to be anything but that, they corner him from the start into being the babo.
I also feel upset when they always introduce him as a babo. It’s so discouraging to him.
On the same boat of thoughts when it comes to people constantly calling him a babo, he isn’t and it clearly upsets him. A lot of people seem to mix his variety show persona to how he actually is and he doesn’t like it. I honestly feel like this whole ‘babo concept’ has become a little burdensome on him to carry.
There is a difference between being a ‘ditz’ and actually being stupid. Yeah, he can be a bit ditzy sometimes, or a little airheaded, but he’s nowhere near close to being an idiot, and it does upset me when people say he is because he’s constantly said how much it bothers him but do people care?
Ugh, he’s not an idiot and he’s not stupid even if he says stupid things sometimes but SO DOES THE REST OF MBLAQ and nobody calls them pabos constantly. :\
Honestly, it bugs me the most when MBLAQ members say it. Like when G.O introduced him as “the idiot of MBLAQ” on Hello Baby or whatever, I mean yeah okay he’s your buddy and he knows you’re joking but…seriously? And then they’re like “oh Joon never opens up to us and distances himself”
I’m sure I’m projecting my own issues on it and it’s not that big of a deal to all of them, but it DOES make me cringe every time one of them says it. I want them to all be supportive of each other, and he’s expressed he’s uncomfortable with it so I just wish it’d stop.
