The news about the date of Philippine President Benigno Aquino III and Grace Lee first broke in Koren news on January 31st. In fairness, everything that has been reported is objective (unlike in one Chinese newspaper where they referred to the President as “balding”). There is just the constant mention of their 22-year age gap. In one news on Yahoo Korea, the netizens mentioned that what the Philippines need is a president like Park Chung Hee ;p Probably implying that we need to focus on more pressing matters, and not on the President’s current romantic interest. Or maybe that the President needs to spend more time on what the Philippines really need. Most of the comments are really about the 22-year age difference. There are a few comments about why the President is still a bachelor at his age. Any idea?
Today, another picture of Pnoy and Grace Lee is circulating on the net. It was taken on December 23rd and it shows the two enjoying a good laugh looking at pictures.
