During the interview with the Chinese media outlet, Song Joong Ki was asked about his thoughts on becoming a father and husband while being invited to Cannes. He replied, “Becoming a father and husband in the entertainment industry means losing a job. In the entertainment industry, it sometimes appears that becoming a father, having a child, and getting married causes me to lose more job opportunities.”
Regarding this, Song Joong Ki expressed his surprise, saying, “I found out about the controversy after receiving a call while I was in Italy,” and called it an “unexpected issue.” He also mentioned that apart from translation issues, he realized that it could be interpreted as uncomfortable.
