Actor Kim Yong-geon (76) is being criticized for using his extramarital pregnancy scandal while acting as a model for a golf club brand advertisement.
Last month, in an advertisement for a domestic golf club brand that featured Kim Yong-gun as a model, men the same age as Kim Yong-gun appeared. A friend finds Kim Yong-geon heading to the golf course and asks, “Yong-geon, what’s the secret?” Friends make a surprise appearance wherever Kim Yong-geon goes and wonder, “What’s the secret to using your power well?” and “Tell me the secret.”
In response, Kim Yong-geon said, “Are you curious about the secret? You just need to know the distance.” Then he swings vigorously on the golf course. Then, he confidently says, “Did you see it?” and mentions the brand.
Some netizens who saw the advertisement criticized it as sensational. It means that the ambiguous questions asked by friends are of a low level to be consumed as humor. He was angry with reactions such as “I’m excited to think of using this as a subject matter”, “Reflect on the person who planned the advertisement”, and “What is the pride of being pregnant out of wedlock?”
On the other hand, some commented, “Are you not responsible for everything anyway?” and “Look at advertisements as advertisements.”
Meanwhile, Kim Yong-geon, who was born in 1946 and is 76 this year, had a conflict with his lover A, who is 39 years younger than him, in August over the issue of childbirth. At the time, Kim Yong-geon, who was accused of coercing a pregnancy termination, resolved the controversy by revealing, “It is true that I recommended it, but I decided to take responsibility for having a child and putting it in the family register.” Person A also received an apology from Yong-gun Kim and withdrew the complaint.
