There has been many speculations about how Park Geun Hye’s position as a famous and influential politician has helped Eun Ji Won’s entertainment and singing career. Eun Ji Won denied such speculations saying, “Many people think that having an influential politician as an aunt would give me some kind of privileges. That’s not the case at all. It’s a rather difficult situation for me to deal with as I have to be cautious and behave in politically sensitive times.” He added, “It’s not like she’s producing my albums or casting me on shows.”
