Popular Actress Gong Hyo Jin is under fire for her recent comment on a fan post.
On January 22, a known fan account of Gong Hyo Jin posted a video of Gong Hyo Jin 2003 drama “Sang-doo! Let’s Go to School,” that fan account is a huge admirer of Gong Hyo Jin and they regularly post content about her dramas, past and present.
But to the surprise of many fans, Gong Hyo Jin herself left a very weird comment on their post asking them to stop posting clips of her dramas, she commented,
“Please. Can you stop bringing back clips of old dramas? I am asking you this favor.”
The comment struck fans as very odd considering that the clip is of something readily available on the internet, the fan didn’t post something that was never-seen or something that shouldn’t be seen, it was a regular clip of one of her popular past dramas meant to reminisce about her old roles. The fan had a very classy response, they wrote back,
“Yes. Actress Gong. I’ll do that. Thank you.”
When another netizen told the fan account that they must be happy to receive a comment from Gong Hyo Jin, the fan responded that they actually felt sad,
“To be honest, I am really sad.”
Gong Hyo Jin comment drew attention online and sparked controversy over what many believe to be unnecessary, netizens don’t understand why Gong Hyo Jin is telling a fan account to stop posting content of her old dramas, many see this as a rude request by Gong Hyo Jin since the fan has done nothing wrong or out of the ordinary to warrant her comment.
Many netizens are criticizing Gong Hyo Jin for the way she commented on a fan post and think she was out of line, ‘how could you say this to a fan?’ ‘that drama is what made me her fan, and that account is a huge fan of her, they must be hurt,’ and many more.
Gong Hyo Jin recently won the Daesang at the 2019 KBS Drama Awards.
