MC Lee Kyung Kyu has gone under fire for going to play golf.

According to YTN on the 26th, Lee Kyung Kyu went golfing with 3 friends. YTN reported, "Lee Kyung Kyu has been playing golf since 11 AM today on the 26th at a golf course in Jeonnam's Hwasoon. Because of the Sewol incident, the celebrity industry has been offering condolences and making donations. Amid all this, we believe Lee Kyung Kyu's golfing will be seen as unfitting."

Lee Kyung Kyu's label told Osen, "He heard about the report and has now stopped and come back. There was an event that he promised to attend a long time ago. However, the event was cancelled, so the manager of the event proposed they go golfing, and he had to attend. But he decided it could be misunderstood and controversial during the time, so he came right back out. We're sorry that we unintentionally caused trouble."

However, most netizens are on Lee Kyung Kyu's side. Many think that the report was intruding into his personal life, and many wonder if YTN reporters are also not doing any type of hobby activities whatsoever. Some have criticized YTN for creating unnecessary drama.

What do you think about the situation?

i really don't like this MC....but i don't see why everyone is getting their panties up in a snit.....the US did not shut down after 9-11. ;Life goes on and the living have to go on how long does this period of mourning go on?......and who determines the duration?

He did nothing to offend the recent tragedy so it was definitely out of line to criticize him over it. YTN has to stop being so hypersensitive. The living have to keep on living. You can't expect everyone to just be sitting at home watching the news 24/7 for updates on the accident.

if it weren't golfing or anything else, should they just sit at home and update on sewol's news 24hours? no matter what happened, ;life must still go on, get a grip ytn.

Fuck this. They are intruding he's private life.

Oh c'mon, we all are heartbreaking over this but some people just show it in other ways and methods. Just because you eat deliciously or laugh happily doesn't mean you're not sad over the incident. I think we gotta loose out the criticism eyes of everyone a bit... : ;

I feel like criticizing people for carrying on with their daily lives makes the situation more depressing than it already is. Why accompany a negative situation with a bunch of people who 'have' to act depressed and stop everything they normally do? Mourning is normal, but it just seems like they want people to stay sad forever
