After watching the latest ‘My Vlar’ birth control CF with the girl group member, netizens showed mixed reactions.
Some found it inappropriate that a girl group member is promoting birth control and showed concerns for Yura’s image. Comments stated, “Wow, she’s not an actress but a female idol. Her label must be very open”, “Why did she film such CF??”, ”Seriously?? lol”
On the other hand, many netizens pointed out that there’s nothing inappropriate about birth control. Comments stated,”What’s wrong with birth control? It’s not only for protection purposes and why are people against an idol filming a CF for it?”, “No need to worry about her image. It’s weirder to be hiding the birth control.”
The talk about Korea’s lack of sexual education also came into the talk. “Our country has a negative perspective on birth control and OB/GYN. That needs to change”, “It’s used to control period schedule. It’s also for treatment purposes. People are so stereotypical”, “Some don’t even know what birth control is..”, commented netizens.
