Kwon Sang-woo talks about girlfriend

…or more accurately the kind of girl he wants, so listen up ladies!

In a recent interview, the Bad Love hunk was asked if he has a girlfriend at the moment. He replied, “Well, I would say "No" whether I have one or not.”

Yes, very wise Oppa, or else a ka-jillion hearts will break and the world will stop revolving for 0.001 milliseconds.

Single and available: Oppa wants a woman who
knows how to love


The 32-year-old was then asked if there is someone he would like to date? Without hesitating, the eligible bachelor said “Yes” but quickly recovered the answer by saying, “There used to be someone I wanted to marry, I used to think ‘I wanna marry that kind of girl’.”

Oh, come on Oppa, it’s pretty obvious there’s a lucky chickadee who has caught your eye. Psst, Orchid is c-r-u-s-h-e-d, by the way. Just thought you’d like to know.

Lonely: Oppa feels lonely now that he's getting older
and wants to settle down

The versatile actor then went on to describe his ideal partner, saying that she has to have grown up in an environment of love. “That sort of person knows how to love and make others happy. That’s the most important thing. I don’t care whether she is wealthy or not.”

His future wife must love him and his mother as well. “If she does so, I will dedicate myself to her.”

Kwon Sang-woo also revealed that he gets lonely as he grows older and wants to start a family. If nothing prevents him from doing so, he will probably get hitched by 35.

Destiny: I wonder who is destined to be Oppa's wife?

“My father passed away when I was a baby, so I’ve been thinking a lot about a complete family,” he revealed. “I want to build a family soon and live with my mother.”

However, the Destiny actor believes that everything will happen in its right time. “I will marry when I want and need to. Even if I meet a great woman, she’s not mine if the timing isn’t right.

“Taking on roles in movies and dramas is also the same. Even if the character is really good, I will not take it if the timing’s not right…it’s just not in my destiny. I follow my destiny.”

Amen. Now how about hooking up with Orchid, Oppa? :-P

Oppa is doing what eligible stars like to do - tease the fans but keeping absolutely mum about his status.

He knows he'll lose tons of fans once he says he's off the mkt, he'll never admit but can you blame him ?

Sigh, the asian market is different compared to the West when it comes to this aspect.

^---- True! but I can only dream :) (wedding bells playing in the background) :P

Jennifer said...

P.S. He is so FINE!

jicks said...

i wanna know which girl it was that he considered marrying @ one stage!

ps- i'm sure if he really wants to get hitched by 35, there will be plenty of woman who are eagerly willing to help him out... (*cough* orchid *cough* ;P )

Orchid said...

Woi...Liz..everyone will surely start to tease me now.

But yeah i was really sad when i saw the article in Korean. I couldn't really understand what KSW was saying - but from my limited Korean, it sounded like HE IS GETTING MARRIED and there's this girl he wants to marry.

"I want to build a family soon and live with my mother."

Huh? Live with his mother? *blink*

linda said...

God. Guys with mother complexes will make their wives insane. Just saying.

Those are really good pictures of him. *sigh*

Orchid said...

@jicks Love your desktop pic ;-)

kswfan said...

Drats...oppa sounds like he is a mommy's boy. I saw in an interview that his mother still scrubs his back when he was in highschool!

fraulein said...

what I'd like to know if his mum still scrubs his back now. LOL....
Mummy's boy ?

I guess not

Some (male) celebrities like to play the "mummy's boy card" to make themselves more endearing to fans. I wonder if that's the case with him

Anonymous said...

Kwon Sang Woo has a girlfriend? Anyone knows who is she? Is she an actress or one of his crew?

Liz said...

@Orchid he he he...*runs and hides*

Chingu said...

I don't think KSW is playing the mama's boy card. I think he IS a mama's boy. Talks about his mother constantly. Which I admire and think is adorable. BUT...forcing this close relationship on a wife ("I want to live with my mother") is selfish. Also, he said once that he can't see his wife as his friend and love her at the same time. I think his theories on marriage are very flawed in some areas. I like him--but I wouldn't marry him.

MeL said...

I agree With Chingu...

I think he really is a Mama's boy, after all he was raised only by his Mom.^^

I don't have a problem living with the Mom! ^o^

*Sigh* I wish he would marry me... O.O

fraulein said...

Chigu,

Thanks for the insight, and nice knowing ya ; )

I cannot read Korean to save my life, so I depend on translated stuff

Interesting take on his theories on marriage, if he does marry soon that is.

In asia, it is sooo much more acceptable to stay with in-laws (mothers). U're not in Asia, are Asian, by any chance, are you ?

mississy said...

*sigh* he's just so dreamy! I remember reading an article once that said he didnt want to get married ever. THAT broke my heart ... but we'll see if he finds that "perfect" girl ... we'll see if she exists.

In asia it is acceptable to live with your parents but in the west it is less acceptable. KSW seems like a mama's boy. A lot of Korean men seem like mama's boys in Korean dramas. Is this the way they really are in Korean society? I've heard that Italian men are mama's boys also. I think what makes KSW so attractive is that he has a sense of humor. In many of his interviews he is laughing and joking. His views on love do seem a little distorted. At least to this westerner.

Clammy said...

It's not just acceptable, they almost want you to stay with them until you are married. Also, it's pretty much expected that your parents will live with you (or one of the children) in their elder years, or to take care of the kids. However, with the weternization of Asia, it's becoming more common to put the elderly in homes.

Anonymous said...

That's why the west has so many problems with elderly care. In some ways the eastern way of caring for the elderly and respect and responsibility are better. It is sad that they are becoming more westernized. In a lot of ways it's all about money. How much you make, how much you have, how much you can spend. The more time you spend making money, the less time you have for family. Money is the root of all evil....

In the west, when a star becomes engaged or married, sometimes their popularity increases because it shows they can be loyal and loving and committed. Maybe he is gay? In western society that would not decrease a person's popularity either.

MeL said...

In some parts of America (not USA, But Central,South America and all latins in general) the culture is different and it is used for guys and girls to live with their parents until they get married and when the parents get old and they are not able to take care of themselves they go and live with one of the daughters or sons..

Also if a popular star says that they have a girlfriend or are about to get married or that they are homosexual its popularity decreases, so I guess it is all a cultural thing.... ^o^

sangwooed said...

Just wondering does anyone know if oppa is really getting married or really have a gf? That would break many hearts... hehe..

If you really admire an actor or actress, marriage should not stop you as a fan to continue supporting him or her. Last year Choi Ji Woo stated that she's ready to get married as soon as she finds her Mr. Right. Ji Woo is a very forth right person (straightforward & extremely loyal to relationship as described by one of her male friend). I wish all actors & actresses are like her, not thinking of losing her popularity, just because she's very honest about her plans.

Great, Kwon Sang Woo is getting married. He should get married like anybody else. This should not stop me from admiring him because he is a great actor. Marriage will not make him a bad actor, maybe he'll be much better because he's happy. Think of his happiness ladies. After all you ladies are his fans not his girlfriends. Be kind & continue to support him & his plans. Go KSW. Be happy & good luck. You can count on my support whatever you do.

i am from abroad and stairway to heaven has just rached my doorsteps. i finally completed watching the whole series today. i fell inlove with kwon sang-woo's character, n maybe with him too. not because of his physical appearance, but because of how modest he is. it's a good thing he didnt decide to marry that girl he thought of. finding out also just now of his marital status and the type of girl he wishes to find, i intend to be the one to reach his goal before the age 35.

I read about KSW marriage and i am sooo busybody because..

He is a great guy.How many Asia male celeb would openly talk about marriage ? I know many who has kept silent,denial,hide thier family somewhere,etc,whatever they can do,except to admit they that they already have own family...

KSW is a great guy and I start to respect him for that.
