Kang Han Na reveals she received harsh criticism on her looks from a casting director

misc.
Kang Han Na shared how she was brutally rejected by a casting director.

On the November 29 airing of KBS2's 'Happy Together 4,' Kang Han Na shared, "It was before I filmed my first production after entering my agency. I auditioned for a drama multiple times. And one day, the casting director called me and told me that I am the ugliest and out of style among the many auditioners. S/he said that I shouldn't audition for dramas anymore and told me not to come." 

 

Kang Han Na revealed she was deeply hurt by the harsh criticism. She said, "I'm not the type that cries a lot. I try to think positive but I was so upset. I cried. I prepared 7-8 pages of the script (for the audition) but it was so upsetting how I was told that I couldn't audition due to my looks."

Casual misogyny on this industry...

This kind of comment is just purely comtempt towards women in the professional environment, at least they should give a comment on her acting.

So because she is ugly, her work doesn't deserves your respect? this is just revolting and just shows how sexism works in the professional environment.

Huh but how do you know that's from a guy in the first place. Don't you think this assumption is sexism in itself.

And don't try to edit your comment into something favorable for you. Your comment is obviously hinting that it's a guy anyway, you can do whatever you want and sane people can still tell that at a glance.

just went to korea seoul, last week and dammn the young people there are rude AF even when you did nothing they just cant seems to act nice but those ajumas are super nice especially those in the market and we do have nice guys and 1 girl helping us around with direction too since we got lost but the amount of rude ppl are just so shocking, my korean friend told me they are as rude to their own people, it came as a shock because once an idol come out slightly rude it becomes such a huge issues i would have thought Knetz are better people...

You never know. Maybe he had a valid response. Koreans do love their plastic surgery and excessive makeup. She could've looked drastically different years ago when she wasn't using them.
