News via soompi.com

Miss A’s Suzy, who this year starred in the MBC drama “Gu Family Book,” is receiving some harsh criticism for her behaviour during the 2013 MBC Drama Awards, especially while she was giving her acceptance speech for her Female High Excellence in Mini-series Award.

On this day, Suzy seemed to have lost her words during her acceeptance speech, and she is being especially criticized for having been distracted, unfocused, and for being too indifferent towards accepting her prize which brought unanimous criticism from both the audience and viewers. 

Netizens who have seen this commented, “Why was she like that,” “In comparison with other actors, she seemed too indifferent, like it didn’t matter to her whether she was receiving that prize or not,” “I think she doesn’t realize how much the award means,” “She obviously knew she was going to win an award, why didn’t she prepare any speech?,” “As well as acting lessons, she needs help on her acceptance speeches as well.”
