Actress Hong Soo Ah has been under some heavy netizen fire as of late, after the press conference for “Malice” on February 2nd. During the conference she stated, "I haven't thought much about it, but the people around me told me that they really like Park Bo Gum. I, likewise, want to act at least once with Park Bo Gum." It might have seemed like a completely innocent statement, but netizens seem to have taken her comment very personally.
Some of the comments that were left for Hong Soo Ah was, "Who the hell are you!" "Don't touch him," "Crazy b*tch," "Because she's doing a bit well in China, she thinks it'd be the same in Korea, too... wake up..." and, "How dare she... leave him alone, there's even an age difference..." but some netizens stood up in her defense with, "Park Bo Gum's fans are mad scary, he might as well be an idol," "She's just saying she wants to do that, why are they going crazy in best comments... This is why celebrities need to be careful of what they say~~~ Just saying you want to do something has people telling you not to even dream of it kekekekekeke."
