Kang Ha Neul smoothly handled negative comments about his visuals, demonstrating his bright and optimistic personality.
During the February 17 episode of Radio Star, actor Kang Ha Neul impressed the MCs when they dissed the size of his face. In Korea, having a small face is perhaps one of the most coveted facial features.
