From yesterday’s post (simply scroll down to see it), a video clip of JYJ’s recent interview on MTVK was pasted into comments (thank you, thank you, thank you majolie87!!), and I believe it needs serious review. I found Junsu’s thoughts on interracial marriage to be very telling.
Concerning the question that JYJ was asked: “Have you ever thought of dating someone of a different race?“, I thought this was a very forward-thinking, progressive question. It only goes to show that with the exposure and travel of K-pop artists to more and more foreign countries, the chances of interracial dating/relationships/marriage are increased. And now, even the Korean media is acknowledging it! Now, although the question is aimed at all the members, Micky (with a curious grin) felt the need to default the question to Junsu. Hmmm….I wonder why? Ok so we all know why!
The most telling of Junsu’s comments is when he said (in so many words) that, for him, not knowing fluent English has become a barrier to carrying on a meaningful, interracial relationship. I thought it was interesting that he mentioned English….like that is the only language of someone of another race. Of course not, but he probably had a special someone on his mind (who speaks English) and so made a ‘slip’. I was happy to hear that he considered it an option, and spoke with authority when saying that the other two members, JaeJoong and Micky, were just as open.
I will note that in another link that majolie87 posted, Junsu spoke of an instance of when he was in France. He witnessed a little blonde girl calling out ‘papa’, which made him dream of interracial marriage. So, it seems that Junsu is just an open person who doesn’t consider color or race a factor. Sure, he may have a preference, but when it comes down to it, he’s looking for a good person. I would actually prefer a man like this. What do you guys think?
