Yoon Eun Hye hasn’t made a drama this year, but she’s set to start filming a movie with Park Shi Hoo with the working title Love After Love. Her management set up a fan cafe for her birthday on October 3rd, the fan cafe being an online forum where fans can write to her and she would personally write back. Sort of a direct connection to her fans if you will.

Well, in the span of about 24 hours or so, she wrote a slightly cryptic message and the cafe was shut down. The message was something along the lines of don’t attack me, my family and friends. This led some people to speculate that she was getting mad at her fans for telling her that she should reconsider this movie role. When in fact what was happening was some people were literally blasting her, her friends and family, and even harrassing her in person.

So anyways, this video is my thoughts on the matter. I’m just trying to clear up any misconception that are going around and start a conversation about the realities of being involved in the Korean entertainment world. The fans here are sometimes really crazy, and sometimes effect the celebrities to the extreme.

    Not having a Korean or any Asian background, there are a lot of things Korean, and Kdrama related that I really don’t understand or agree with. I certainly have no problem with her doing a movie with him if she really wants to. But, how do your Korean/American or other Koreans who do not live in Korea feel about this?

      You took my thoughts and expressed it.
      I wish we could influence the rating of the Korean movies/dramas from here

    **Wikipedia is my friend**

    Sasaeng “fan”. Sa meaning private. Saeng meaning life. Fan being short for the word fanatic.

    To be fanatic about someone’s private life is a crazy notion in and of itself. I am fanatic about the dramas I watch. I hiccup a little (die inside) when I find out that some of the “smexy” actors I like are either married (WITH CHILDREN SOMETIMES) or dating a gorgeous actress I admire. It hurts a little when I find out they are married to/dating someone normal (to be honest…this gives me hope). But to threaten the livelihood of the friends, family, and coworkers of someone I “admire” SHOULD grant me a one way ticket to the closest Happy Dale (sanitarium from Arsenic and Old Lace).

    As a public figure (i’m assuming) you expect to get hate mail and things of that nature because you are in the public eye and are then subject to the judgement and scrutiny of said public. What you don’t expect is to have your family and friends character come into question because of your actions.

    That said…I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE THIS!!!! I have missed Park Shi Hoo since his drama Cheongdam-dong Alice. YEH’s last drama left much to be desired, but I still love her character/drama choices.

    This comment got away from me…sorry.

    You keep posting…I’ll keep watching!
