Previously it was reported that Park Seo Joon was being criticized for allegedly being rude to Park Bo Young.

Park Seo Joon Under Fire For Alleged Rude Behavior Towards Park Bo Young

The controversy stems from a pair of couple hairbands handed to Park Bo Young. Park Bo Young, who plays the role of Park Seo Joon’s wife in the movie Cement Utopia, took one pair for herself before handing the other pair to Park Seo Joon.


Fans were disappointed, however, when Park Seo Joon seemed to point at his hair and refused the hairbands. Park Bo Young seemed to understand the actor’s refusal and nodded at him before hanging on to the other pair.

Some netizens criticized Park Seo Joon for allegedly making Park Bo Young feel awkward after refusing the fan’s gift. Others stated that whether he wanted to wear the hairbands or not, the actor should have accepted the other pair from Park Bo Young.

Amid the controversy, a netizen who alleged they were the fan who had handed the hairband spoke out. The fan defended the actor and asked that netizens stop making a big deal out of the incident.

I am the person who gave them the hairband, and I am fine (with the actor’s decision). I don’t want this incident to be brought up again.

— Alleged fan

It seems the fan felt the backlash was unwarranted. What are your thoughts?
