This is going to be the first time I will comment briefly on Park Shi Hoo scandal. I believe I am a fan of his dramas, 2 of them particularly. The Prosecutor Princess and The Princess' Man. I love both dramas. About Park Shi Hoo, there was a time when I wrote here in my blog that I can't get enough of him, that's because I fell for his character in Prosecutor Princess. And sometimes when I chanced upon an article or news about him, I'd share them here.
I am foremost a k-drama addict. I learn to like actors and actress thru the drama and character they portray. besides my biases, so far I am not really in any position to judge them on how they live their life. I don't know them well.
This particular case of Park Shi Hoo is a wake up call for all celebrity in Korea. I know how strict they are when it comes to dating and even divulging personal things about the artists that concerns love relationship. I think this is the reasons why most actors or actresses are living a very restricted life, while some resorted to doing things that are putting them in a bad light, morally and socially unaccepted.
I have followed and read this case of PSH in other sites and blogs and two extreme opinions are really dividing the netizens. I will just share my own without prejudice.
Rape issue is a heinous crime and it will never be acceptable for me as a woman.
I am willing to wait for the verdict of this case. But reading all speculations, all evidences, all that has happened prior and after the night of Feb. 14 and 15 2013, I want to say that PSH made a big mistake that night. A huge mistake he will forever be remorseful. It's a thin line between rape and having different judgment call on that moment. He did not use his head... And as for the victim...she also made a mistake by trusting 2 men. I can safely say that both made a very terrible mistake that night. Lives will forever be tarnished. And they did it to themselves. So sorry for the both of them. I wish them inner peace.
I don't think PSH will ever recover from this scandal even if he will be acquitted. His career is forever gone, in Korean entertainment standard. If it happened to a Hollywood star or even here in my country, he can make amends after acquittal and after sometime, can pick up where he left off his career.
