[Pexers Write-Ups] You Are Entitled To My Opinion: What’s All the Ruckus About?
Author: AprilStarr https://www.facebook.com/HyunniesPexers
In the noises created by the recent media conversations between two parties, what is it about? Really.
So many joined the fray creating all the dusts up in the air. Yet majority agreed whatever is happening is something private between two individuals and by extension their families.
Then why are A LOT of people so involved ? The answer is because a lot of people have taken sides early on.
As one commentor said in a forum, who is your horse in this race? Fans of Hyun Joong may say, we have been with him for so long we know him, but not Ms A (now Choi). There is so much investment in HJ in terms of emotions, resources,time and most supporting him through thick and thin. All on the basis of what fans think they know about him. NO ONE will dispute his hardworking ways to be able to present his best to his fans. His fans were proud of his achievements as if he is a favorite family member.
How about Ms A who up to now remains anonymous to most? Her rise to most’ consciousness was through the infamous assault case. But she found allies among what many would call HJ haters but some may be legit women’s rights defenders.
HJ was able to overcome what people initially said the end of his career. For his fans defended him and supported him in his Gemini Tour. He goes home after his successful tour and most would just be waiting for some news he entered the mandatory military service. Many prepared themselves for the period of drought.
There is no period of drought yet.
The day of his setting foot in SK was greeted with the news of his impending marriage and Ms A’s pregnancy. Many reacted with disappointment,disbelief,hatred on the other party,name calling for both parties, confusion, pledges of allegiance to Hyun Joong,etc. Media had a field day exposing (it sells,too) what should have been transpiring in private. True tabloid. Why not, who’s going to pass up this opportunity? Specially if opportunity presents itself and Hyun Joong is a popular figure. If he is a relatively unknown, who will care?
In the past, this kind of stories should have been told as blind items.
Begging the question is : up to what extent should private matters be dragged into the open?
Most public persona do not want their private lives exposed. However, celebrity lives are very vulnerable to being open books that finds immediate readers. Particularly with social media that in seconds spread the news, commented upon from the mild to the bizarre.
It is very tempting to be in the know of the latest. Although at a certain point one employs the wisdom of the three monkeys-hear no evil,see no evil,speak no evil (see past article).
Understandably fans’ protective love for Hyun Joong do not want him to be placed in a tight spot as before. But some are beginning to realize they are now caught in something they have no control of. Some are beginning to treat the episodic happenings like watching a makjang kdrama that others pale in comparison. Others with a tsk,tsk,tsk remarked it is beginning to mimic a front row seat watching a fight round by round. Or blow by blow. As the parties exchanges interviews and timelines the inevitable is asked, who is telling the truth? But honestly,who cares for that, it’s their life.
Yet many are led to inquire for motivations and intentions for starting the media play shoving the pregnancy and marriage issue to public forum and subsequent revelations of text messages. What for? The presence of lawyers from a law firm as mouthpieces does not prognosticate a healthy settlement (of whatever it is they are trying to settle).
But I’m getting lost in the maze of these brickbats.
What is the commotion about again?
