Writer Kim Tae Hee Came Under Criticisms Following Reckless Acceptance Speech At "2014 MBC Drama Awards" And Disrespectful Comments Regarding ZE:As Im Siwan

Writer Kim Tae Hee Under Fire for Inappropriate Acceptance Speech and Past SNS Remarks about Im Siwan

“Radio Starwriter Kim Tae Hee recently came under criticisms from  netizens following her acceptance speech at “2014 MBC Entertainment Awards,” as well as  disrespectful comments on SBS regarding ZE:A’s Im Siwan in the past.

On December 29, at the 2014 MBC Entertainment Awards, Kim Tae Hee won the award for writing for “Radio Star.” Her acceptance speech shocked many people. She said, “Even though it’s been a while since I left, I would like to thank the ‘Infinity Challenge’ PD and members. I especially remember when Noh Hong Chul was carrying sweet potatoes and fell. And I want to apologize to [Jung] Hyung Don for rejecting his advances [regarding dating].”

Many found her comments inappropriate. Noh Hong Chul was charged with a DUI in November and had to leave “Infinity Challenge” and his other programs due to the scandal. Jung Hyung Don has been married since 2009 to writer Han Yoo Ra. A netizen commented, “It is inappropriate for her to mention them that way since Noh Hong Chul is being edited out of programs and Jung Hyung Don is happily married.”

In the midst of the controversy surrounding her speech, Kim Tae Hee’s past inappropriate comments about ZE:A’s Im Siwan have resurfaced. In August 2012, comedian Jung Ju Ri posted a photo of herself with Im Siwan with the caption, “Ah, so pretty. I should date him. I should date and kiss him.” Writer Kim Tae Hee replied, “Oh, it’s Siwan. Juri, Siwan kisses very well. If you ask him for a kiss, he may do it since he’s so nice.” A screen capture of the original photo and post, as well as Kim Tae Hee’s reply, was uploaded on an online community and criticism was heaped on both women for their words. Netizens left remarks such as, “The speech was too much,” “He’s already married …,” and “Why bring up Noh Hong Chul?”

Rain, Krystal, Jo In Sung, and More Likely to Be Absent from 2014 SBS Drama Awards

Expectations are falling for the 2014 SBS Drama Awards as more and more stars confirm their absence from the year-end awards ceremony.

Those who are already confirmed to not attend the event include singer-actor Rain, as well as actors Park Hae Jin and Lee Ji Ah. Rain, who starred in “My Lovely Girl” earlier this year, will not be in Korea on the day of the ceremony due to filming schedules for his debut drama production in China titled “Diamond Lover.” Actress Lee Ji Ah, who made a successful comeback through “Thrice Married Woman,” has also confirmed her absence. Park Hae Jin, who starred in two SBS dramas this year—“Man from the Stars” and “Doctor Stranger”—will be unable to attend as he will be filming his new movie, “Friends 2” in China as well.

It is very unlikely that Lee Seung Gi, who has been nominated for an award for “You’re All Surrounded,” will be present at SBS Drama Awards due to conflicting schedules. Other stars that have a high chance of not attending include the lead actors of “It’s Okay, That’s Love,” Jo In Sung and Gong Hyo Jin. The two actors’ agencies have yet to make a statement on whether they will be present at the event.

A rep of SM Entertainment also recently revealed, “It is very likely that f(x)’s Krystal will not attend due to other schedules.”

Meanwhile, the SBS Drama Awards is scheduled to be broadcast live on December 31.
