Lee Joon had been on the program, “We Got Married” with Oh Yeon Seo. However, due to a scandal, the two were forced to withdraw from the program.
On the show, “Hwa Shin,” Lee Joon opens up about how he felt about leaving the show. The MC asks him why they had to leave from Oh Yeon Seo’s dating scandal, when in the show, they weren’t even dating for real.
Lee Joon explains how his couple, while it may have been imaginary, was still trying to make it appear real and genuine so when the dating rumors did blow up they received a lot of flak from viewers who in some ways felt like they were being deceived during the course of the show. In this regard he says that he feels that “Both of them were victims,” and how “Frankly they did nothing wrong,” and that “Whether that person was dating that guy or not isn’t really important, they are more than allowed to date and the issue blew out of proportions because of that photo.”
What’s worse at least from Lee Joon’s position is as he states, “Even now if I go on a show and I try to explain myself when they ask me about this, she ends up being the only one getting a lot of flak about it” and how this causes a lot of heartache for him. He concludes by saying that he really hopes that people stop doing that now because “It is not her fault, it is no one’s fault.”
Shin Dong Yup jokingly asks him something interesting and that is whether he was using the show as a way of dating her for real, talking about how it would be a safe option. Lee Joon replies that they “Weren’t dating for real” and that it was tough on him because he “didn’t believe that she did anything wrong but she got a lot of flak and I ended looking like a pitiable fellow.”
