  1. joo won! there was emptiness in your past with father and mother, and there will be the same in the future. but you are golden to move forward alone..,.this is a good time for being alone, it is LONELINESS that you fear. and loneliness is a good time for you to think with your soul. you need to know MOON JOO WON. not as a son, not as a brother, not as an actor, and not as a friend…. for a while. you need to find and be your authentic self and allow it to resonate within your soul. if you want to escape to America for a few weeks, DO NOT GO TO the west coast. dig deep into the heart of America, Omaha, Nebraska. defy the odds…quit being a tool, i’ll teach you English, how to fix houses, plumbing, electricity, American cooking! we can help you get a job… it hurts to hear you are so controlled… but, when does JOO WON get to be JOO WON? roller coaster… are you ready for a ride? A CHILD DOES NOT OWE A PARENT

    • Thanx God, is not only, thinking the same… I thought exactly the same like you, 1million Won is not to much money. That is his monthly salary or he is talking about the money that he spends in the month??

  2. I don’t think the case is his parents control him or something like that .. as we know and have seen many times that he’s so close with his parents and respect them so much I can totally understand why he don’t want to live alone and that was one of the reason I liked him .. I like how he shows his love to his family every time 🙂
    and it’s not strange in Korea for a mother to manage her young son’s benefits I have heard about this thing a lot in Korean programs their parents manage their money and give them allowance so they help them to collect money instead of wasting it ^^

  3. I think everyone is misunderstanding…he is getting allowance from her mom because he is not interested in managing funds. he is not being controlled by his parents as they are loving family. it’s JooWon’s choice that his mom manages his earnings for him and he gets allowance so he can focus on other things such as acting, learning, etc.
