Netizens are angry at D.O. for his comment toward actress Lee Do Yeon because, as they say, he was being too mean and inconsiderate.  They suggested he was making a jab at the actress's looks.

The comment came about during a recent press conference for D.O.'s new movie, 'Hyung' (0:20 above).




During the interview, D.O. said, "We didn't kiss for real. And I think it's a relief." After laughing for a bit, he added, "That's not what I'm saying.  It's a joke."

However, as D.O.'s comment began to circulate in the online communities, many people are finding the comment to be discriminating against certain types of actors; some say that it is simply mean and rude. 




"D.O....Why..."


"...male idols have a lot of influence...we are very sensitive about misogynistic comments..."


"No...please apologize, D.O...that speech was rude. I really like you, but I am disappointed..."


"...the video is worse...So rude. So disappointed." 





"The reason I am more hurt is I've been in a situation like that before...A guy once said, 'I almost kissed that pig. Thank God, I didn't. Who would want to kiss her?' in front of my friends. I remember being so hurt. D.O...I am crying. Never thought my bias would say something like that..." 



"A lot of Korean guys joke like that in real life...And then they say it was a joke.... Average guys say stuff like that behind your back." 


"...why would you say that in front of people? So rude."


"If you're gonna be sorry, don't say it."


"But don't we see jokes like that a lot? I am used to it....It's so low to joke about other people's looks." 




"This isn't right, D.O....You're younger than her and you don't have a lot of acting experience...Why would you joke like that. If you knew how seriously rude your comment was when Park Shin Hye tried to stop you, you would've clarified yourself...The D.O. I like is always serious, polite, and hard-working, not this. Please realize this and apologize." 


Netizens are also comparing his comment about this kiss scene with Lee Do Yeon to his comment when promoting his previous movie, 'Pure Love,' with Kim So Hyun, who is born in 1999 and is a minor.




D.O. was asked, "Were you disappointed that there was no real kiss scene in the movie?" D.O. answered, "I was disappointed...I could've done something I couldn't normally do with acting as an excuse, so I was excited for it, but the scene ended up with me kissing an umbrella." 


Netizens say that this is clearly D.O. being biased against Lee Do Yeon because she is not as pretty and young as Kim So Hyun.  Some even point out it sounded like he wanted to kiss an underaged girl, which they find odd.




However, some netizens are defending him, saying that he was referring to the context of the kiss. In the movie, the kiss scene with Lee Do Yeon comes off as sexual harassment. Also, some netizens are accusing those netizens of being the discriminatory ones who are implying the actress is "ugly" in the first place.


What do you guys think about D.O.'s comment? Is it problematic or are the netizens overreacting again?

    So many people trying to jump on the bandwagon of trying pull those who are at top down without even knowning the full story. He never did say she was ugly. If you have watched the movie. Particularly, at that scene, you will get the context he's using. I have other things, but I'm literally turning into a fan defending his bias. Haha. I'm not saying DO is perfect, I just think that he doesn't deserve this almost baseless flak. I also think that Kyungsoo has better heart than some/most people here just trying to grab the opportunity to hate on DO. Good Day :)

    I guess some good came out of this article. I know DO watches his words but I hope he'll just be more careful in the future since some people might misinterpret him. (Lol. Someone keeps on disliking us. I bet it's the same person.)

    What the hell "ugly" artist? Probably those netizens are UGLY so they got hurt. He just said that he is glad the kissing scene does not push through. He didn't said that she was ugly or anything. People these days need a time of the social media.

    You can't be serious.. are you believing an allkpop article?.. Are you fluent in Korean? Do you know the exact context? Do you know the backstory? Have you even watched the movie? If the answer is no for any of these, you cant judge him.

    Insert "It was a joke" + circumstancial explanation. What netizens are doing are taking his words out of context and essentially misquoting him. I wonder how hurtful it is to him that people actually live by not trusting what comes before "but" and twisting his intentions.

    CLARIFICATIONS. With arguments and statements that overwhelmingly refute all this. Stop being so ridiculous believing what this rubbish of allkpop publishes. Here: http://twitter.com/doyeolove_aya/status/803694890865422336

    I really hope he didn't mean it that way at all because that would be rude as crap.
