Man, this isn’t disappointing it’s just flat out a seminal moment in K-ent, almost a second wave of the Me Too movement of 2018 when many male K-stars were outed to have harassed, assaulted, abused, and even raped women during their career in power. Last year it was the younger stars like Seungri and Jung Joon Young revealed to have shared sexually explicit videos of women, and some of the men involved even had sex with the women while they were incapacitated. Now it appears the younger men were merely emulating their seniors as this week’s phone hacking scandal main star Joo Jin Mo who went public first had his Kakao talk posted to chat boards and it’s a doozy.
The chat is from 2013 and involved Star A, who was today confirmed to be the rumored Jang Dong Gun, and the two men basically talk about hooking up with young pretty girls at bars and clubs and trade pictures of women in sexy poses. References are made to other male actors including Song Seung Hun, Hyun Bin, Lee Jung Jae, and Jung Woo Sung in various contexts such as going to hang out with one of them or knowing those guys also are regulars at the same club/bars that provide special services. Joo Jin Mo was single in 2013 but married as of last year but Jang Dong Gun was already married to Go So Young in 2013 and she was pregnant with his first baby.
