Lee Yeon Hee's name soared to the top of search rankings due to her behavior spotted in a clip during the script reading for the new MBC drama 'Book of the House of Gu'.

The controversy began when MBC unveiled a video of the script reading session for the drama on their homepage. Upon watching the video, netizens noticed Lee Yeon Hee's inattentive attitude towards the cast and crew. Although the other celebrities, sunbaes as well as hoobaes, greeted and clapped for their fellow cast mates, Lee Yeon Hee seemed as if she was more interested in the objects in front of her.

In addition to not clapping or looking at the other cast mates as they were introduced, she also didn't seem to pay much attention when the PD himself offered his greeting and spoke about the project.

With the issue growing slightly out of hand, MBC commented, "Lee Yeon Hee had a lot of lines to go over for the reading. She was focusing on the script so she greeted the other actors by exchanging eye contact at the time. It's hard to say there was a problem with her attitude just because she's not clapping."

However, netizens were not phased by the explanation, and led SM Entertainment to offer their statement on the issue. They commented, "The atmosphere during the script reading was good. She greeted the directors, writers, and cast in a good manner, but it seems a misunderstanding arose due to how the video was edited."

'The Book of Gu' representative also commented along the lines of SM's statement, saying, "Although it wasn't shown on screen due to editing, Lee Yeon Hee also clapped like her other cast mates and showed her support for the actors and actresses."

The said video clip can be seen below (starts around 1:30 mark)

    I watched that video and I saw nothing. i just saw her sitting down and looking like she is thinking and waiting. How can that be offensive?

    Netizens (if that's who it was) are stupid with their so called polite manners! There is no point in praise if it's just to look good.
