During the first press conference for ‘Hogu’s Love’ back in January, rookie actress Lee Soo Kyung displayed what netizens believed was very rude behavior, leading to a controversy about her disrespecting her seniors, UEE, Choi Woo Sik, and Seulong. Afterwards, the other actors’ agencies stepped up to assure everybody that the cast members were close despite the atmosphere during the event.
Now, during the second press conference for the tvN drama on March 3, UEE personally apologized for Lee Soo Kyung’s past comments and attitude.
She said, “I should have done well as her unnie, so I am sorry. The atmosphere on set was so good and it was good from the beginning. From the first time I saw Lee Soo Kyung, I liked her a lot because she gave off a good feeling; Soo Kyung likes me, as well. However, I am sorry for that behavior at an important event.”
Likewise, Lee Soo Kyung made her personal apology on this day. She said, “Firstly, I’m sorry. I was very nervous at the time, so my first thought was to do well no matter what with no mistakes. I wanted to properly relay the set that I enjoy being on as is, but that created a misunderstanding about my behavior, so I am very sorry,” showing tears.
