DAY6 member Jae has apparently triggered K-netizens with his recent statement about taking a girl out to McDonald's while on a date during an interview with DJ Bernard Park.
K-netizens got the impression that he was encouraging men to carry out gold-digger screening tests. Many netizens have stated, "From what he said, it makes all women look as if they're gold diggers."
Jae said during the interview that he had to check if the girl would be worthy of having a $300 dinner date by first seeing how the date goes on a $5.00 dinner date.
The statement can be heard around starting at 6:16 below.
Moments after, he released a letter of apology.
But while on top of continuously receiving criticism over his statement even after his sincere apology, K-netizens also began to make fun of his apology written in Korean as there were a few grammar mistakes.
Is Jae's statement really controversial? Is a testing one's character an act to be criticized and shamed? Are K-netizens over-reacting? Feel free to share your thoughts below in the comment section!
