Korean reporters and filming staff have revealed surprising insights into the behavior and skills of certain actors whose high-profile statuses and extensive acting careers couldn’t shield them from criticism. Reporters and staff named these Korean actors the rudest.
Who Are the Rudest Korean Actors and Why?
Reporters and staff have noted these Korean actors for their less-than-commendable manners and named the rudest. Are you curious about the details behind their reputations and what led to such assessments?
1. Ma Dong-seok (Don Lee)
Industry insiders believe Ma Dong-seok’s publicity methods make him appear as a virtual character. This perception raises concerns about his public image despite him being a main cast member. Ma Dong Seok faced significant criticism for his absence from press interviews and promotional events for his movies. Consequently, he was named the rudest Korean actor in the Sanddalki Awards.
2. Kim Tae-ri
Reporters criticized Kim Tae-ri for her attitude during interviews. She was reportedly dismissive or inattentive, behaviors that detracted from her professional image. Some reporters felt her behavior at times reflected poorly on her maturity and professionalism.
Furthermore, a clip mentioned that Kim Tae Ri once stole a film director’s watch, which she admitted to, stating that the director was still unaware of it. This act was among several reasons cited for her being perceived as having poor manners at the 6th Wildberry Film Festival.
2. Nam Joo-hyuk
Nam Joo-hyuk’s interaction with Bae Suzy after a kiss scene in their drama “Start-Up” has been a topic of discussion among fans and netizens. Following the scene, the actor jokingly asked Suzy about her lunch, specifically questioning if it smelled like Samhap, a dish known for its pungent odor and a specialty from Korea’s Jeolla province. Some perceived this remark as a back-handed joke about Suzy’s hometown and considered it rude to imply that she smelled.
This controversy resurfaced amidst Nam Joo-hyuk facing accusations of bullying from his high school years, which his agency has denied. These allegations have sparked debates among netizens, with a second alleged victim also coming forward. Bullying accusations against Korean celebrities have been a serious issue, affecting the careers of several actors and K-pop idols.
3. Seo Ye-ji
Seo Ye-ji has been involved in multiple controversies that have impacted her career and public image. A poll by dcinside even named her one of the rudest Korean actors.
One of the major incidents that brought her under scrutiny involved her relationship with actor Kim Jung-hyun. Reports emerged revealing that Seo Yea-ji had an undue influence over Kim Jung-hyun’s behavior during the filming of the drama “Time,” to the extent that it affected his professional conduct on set.
In addition to this, the Korean actor faced accusations from various fronts, including allegedly fabricating her educational background, staff abuse, and bullying. Reports stated that she had made contradictory statements about studying in Spain, leading to public confusion about her educational history. Furthermore, there were claims from staff members of the series “It’s Okay to Not Be Okay” alleging verbal abuse. Filming staff accused her of creating a hostile working environment. These allegations depicted a demanding and challenging personality behind the scenes.
