Park Seo Joon got caught in controversy during an event
At one meet and greet event, Park Seo Joon’s indifferent behaviour grabbed all the eyeballs. What happened was that during the stage greeting for his upcoming film, one of his fans approached the lead couple, Park Seo Joon and Park Bo Young in Concrete Utopia.
The fan handed the lead actress a pair of headbands. As per reports, the fan exclusively made the couple headbands for Seo Joon and Bo Young. While Park Bo Young accepted the gift with much love and was quick to adorn the headband. On the other hand, Park Seo Joon refused to wear it. The reports claim that the 34-year-old actor made some hand gestures suggesting that he has sprayed down his hair and won’t be able to wear the headband due to it. After which, Bo Young nodded her head and held the other band in her hand.
How did Park Seo Joon’s fans react to his behaviour?
The gesture of not accepting the gift did not go well with the netizens, and they were quick to criticise the actor, Park Seo Joon. Many people found his attitude quite odd as he always accepts gifts from his fans which he even did during his promotional events for his now-released film, Dream. As per reports, some people claim that it is very rude to be greeted like that as people gathered there to watch his film solely. Netizens expressed their displeasure by saying that the basic fan service was missing.
