Actress Uhm Ji Won's comments toward Kang Don Won is making netizens say that the actress was too rude! 

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.

Congratulation kang don won,your film did(earned)well...i suppose this is not insulting...

It was controversial because all her films haven't become hits neither and Kang Dong Won has many successful and still relevant films under his belt. So she didn't have a "right to criticize". They were clearly joking but she should be a bit careful, even more when she talks about someone with such a big name as KDW

it seems like uhm ji won  has this habit of going around careless with her words i've read a previous interview that she had with gong hyo jin and found her statements a bit too much at a bit too misleadingi dunno maybe she didn't really mean it a bad way but she should definitely hire a communications coach or something

Start working at home with Google! It's by-far the best job I've had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this - 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $77 per hour. I work through this link, go to tech tab for work detail........============    W­­W­­W.h­o­m­e­j­o­b­s­7­.C­­O­­M

Well, it seems like if an actress tells the truth about his acting partner, she gets s*it for it. So sad.

She is just really bad at making jokes. I'm curious if it's even worse in private...that would be epic. Or maybe she really doesn't like him...

Definitely unprofessional of her, and she should have been self-aware that the public will be listening to her comments and there will be people being critical of her words.
