On yesterday’s episode of Mnet’s “The Beatles Code,” Kim Hyun Joong explained, “I would like to marry someone who is not materialistic.” He added, “As a guy, I don’t understand why girls like expensive bags. I just don’t see the difference between a bag that costs $10,000 and a bag that costs $20. They’re exactly the same.”

In Korea, it’s customary for the bride and groom’s family to exchange dowries and wedding gifts, called paemul. Kim Hyun Joong stated, “The gifts can cost $500-600K or more, and it seems absurd to get a loan to buy them just because a wedding is ‘once in a lifetime.’” The singer actor has already mentioned before that he wanted about four children; and during the show, he surprised everyone by stating out the qualifications for his future wife: “She has to be fecund and unmaterialistic.”

When asked if those two qualifications were it, Kim Hyun Joong gave a cold look and said “Most importantly, she must be pretty” in a matter-of-fact way. Then host Yoon Jong Shin laughingly added, “Pretty, kind, unmaterialistic, and someone who’s willing to have a lot of children? I think there’s a high chance you’ll stay single until over forty.”
