Lay may be a member of one of the most successful K-Pop groups but he says he wouldn’t wish it on his children.
Pear Vid asked if he encourages other youths who dream to become an idol just like him.
He says he encourages anyone with that dream, as long as it’s not his own children!
“I would encourage any young people with this dream, but if he were my son? I wouldn’t encourage it.” — Lay
He would rather his son pursue a different career path as a doctor, lawyer, artist, or more.
“I hope my son becomes a good doctor, a lawyer or enjoy arts. He can like the arts, he can cultivate his tastes but I can’t really support him becoming an idol.” — Lay
When he was told another actor was very against his daughter becoming an actress, Lay completely agreed that he would do the same.
“Daughter? If I have a daughter, I will be even more against it.” — Lay
With the current negative atmosphere within the entertainment industry, it’s no wonder Lay would want to protect his own.
