Park Shin-yang criticized by netizens, SBS denies involvement
On January 6, a netizen wrote on an online café some words of criticism for Painter of the Wind star Park Shin-yang, pretending to be the drama’s director, Jang Tae-yoo (at left, with Park on far left).
No big deal, right? I mean, anyone can comment on this site using the name “George Clooney” and nobody would think it was actually him, wishful thinking aside.
But no, anything dealing with SBS and/or Park Shin-yang must be handled awkwardly. SBS made an official statement asserting that PD Jang was surprised to find himself in the middle of a commentroversy and that he did not, in fact, author the comment, following criticism of PD Jang because of it. (And I say: SBS, are you unclear on the concept of the internet?)
Apparently PD Jang, who worked with Park Shin-yang on their previous drama War of Money, is a good friend of the actor — in which case, shouldn’t this have passed without a fuss? I just think this is hilarious — what, after you banned Park from your station, SBS, are you suddenly afraid of somehow offending him?
