Since Mr. Gu (Seon Seok Koo) from JTBC‘s Saturday-Sunday drama “My Liberation Notes” was revealed to have managed a host bar, netizens have been divided.
On the May 15th episode of “My Liberation Notes,” it was revealed that Mr.Gu, who is in a relationship with Yeom Mi Jeong (Kim Ji Won), used to own a host bar, a popular entertainment business (club/bar).
Until now, Mr. Gu‘s identity has remained a mystery, to the point where “Mr. Gu’s identity“, “Mr. Gu’s past,” and other relevant search terms for this drama keep appearing. It was finally revealed in the most recent episode.
However, fans are divided regarding Mr. Gu‘s past, as he used to run a host bar and even supervise workers for such adult entertainment businesses.
Internet users on the online community TheQoo commented, “You guys want him to be a gangster rather than a host bar host?”, “You mean they can’t talk about host bar in dramas? People have different backgrounds”, “The male lead is being punished to carry a desperate heart because of his past. Some people just don’t watch the drama but commented as if we are beautifying the story”, “But the main characters are all good people, right?”, etc.
However, other netizens angrily said, “The male lead in this romance drama is a host bar host?”, “Should I watch the deliberation of a host bar host?”, “A host bar male lead is having a romance with the female lead?”, “What’s the point of including such detail in the drama?”, “This makes me feel quite annoying”, etc.
