The youngest member of IVE, Leeseo, introduced herself, saying “I’m 17 years old in Korean age. I was born in 2007.” Kim Jaejoong, who was born in 1986, was taken aback to hear that, saying, “So there’s a 21-year age difference between us.”

Then, when Leeseo said she wanted to address Kim Jaejoong as ‘Uncle’, he responded, “Hearing ‘Uncle Jaejoong’ hurts my heart.” In response, Leeseo suggested, “Should I call you Oppa then?” However, Kim Jaejoong replied, “No, that’s not it either. It feels a bit strange. Don’t force it. You can call me ‘Ajusshi’, or even ‘Grandfather'”


-Wow… He’s old enough to be her father🥲

-Still, he said it’s a bit strange to have her call him Oppaㅋㅋㅋ

-Uncle Jaejoongㅋㅋㅋ But when she tried calling him ‘Oppa,’ he immediately said that’s not itㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

-????????? 21-year difference?

-I understand how he feels. When someone calls me ‘Aunt’, it feels weird because they’re not my niece or nephewㅋㅋㅋ It’s not like I want to be called ‘Unnie’ either, but it just doesn’t feel right, you know?ㅋㅋㅋ

-I get what he means. Maybe calling him ‘Sunbae’ would be better.


-What do you mean ‘Grandfather’?ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

-Just calling them ‘Sunbae’ would be fineㅋㅋ

-Leeseo looks mature and Kim Jaejoong just doesn’t age… So the 21-year age difference doesn’t look obvious at allㅋㅋㅋ It’s not a big deal!!

-With that age gap, calling him ‘Oppa’ doesn’t make senseㅠㅋㅋ ‘Uncle’ or ‘Sunbae’ would be better.

-The article title is written to stir up controversyㅋㅋ If you don’t read the article, you’ll misunderstand.

-But really, Kim Jaejoong takes care of himself wellㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ He doesn’t seem like an old man ㅠㅠ

-Honestly, ‘Oppa’ just doesn’t sound right. Isn’t the word ‘Sunbae’ more fitting at times like this?ㅋㅋㅋㅋ
