Korean celebrities seemingly get criticized by netizens for some ridiculous reasons, as there have been plenty of K-Pop idols who’ve gotten criticized for strange reasons. The same can be said for Korean actors. Here’s a list of a few Korean actors who criticized for some of the most ridiculous reasons.
1. Han So Hee
Han So Hee has gotten criticized by some netizens for some past photos showing her tattoos, and for smoking.
It even got to the point where Han So Hee’s friend came out and criticized South Korea’s society for their sexist views on tattoos and smoking.
Tattoos and smoking, it’s only an issue when women do it.
Honestly, it’s just sexist and discrimination to think that [smoking and tattoos] can be okay for male actors, but there is an issue when a female actress does it.
Nowadays, there are many people with tattoos, so the people who like tattoos are supporters. But wouldn’t people who dislike tattoos also show their displeasure? I can’t say that mindset is right or wrong because everyone has different ideas.
Those pictures with tattoos and cigarettes were taken by Han So Hee when she was a model. Because of her appearance in the drama, interest in her has naturally increased.

My face was bloated that day, and my condition wasn’t great either. Now that I’m older, I have my good days and my bad days.

What did a little kid do to deserve this? She filmed it without knowing anything. Please delete your harsh comments. I hope you cheer her on so that she can finish filming her part in the drama.
