On the December 5 interview with the cast of upcoming film, 'Master,' the MC brought up the fact that the movie's showcase standing tickets sold out in 1 minute and reserve seat tickets sold out in 14 minutes. When Kang Don Won jokingly commented, "The reserved seats took a bit longer," Uhm Ji Won responded, "You didn't become humble even after your movie flopped," laughing.
The movie that Uhm Ji Won was referring to was Kang Don Won's last film, 'Vanishing Time,' which, despite great reviews from movie critics, did not do well in the box office, only bringing in about 500,000 movie goers.
After making that comment, Uhm Ji Won also stated, "Kang Don Won doesn't have a lot of people around him. He meets the same people. The Kang Don Won I know is kind and has a good personality...but I think he should be more humble," repeating the comment on his humility.
After the interview aired, netizens began to criticize the actress, saying, "It was inappropriate," "It was rude," and, "She put down the entire movie -- something that was the combined effort of many people." Others defended her saying, "It's a joke between two close friends," but the debate over Uhm Ji Won's comment continues.
