After a preview cut of Park Myung Soo nudging AOA member Seolhyun’s head on KBS’ variety show “Brave Family” hit the airwaves, it became a hot topic as netizens debated whether the questionable action was appropriate or not.
With increasing amounts of attention being focused on the issue, the producer of the show stepped up to respond through a statement explaining what had happened at the time of filming.
On January 24, “Brave Family” PD Song Jun Young revealed, “The closing preview from yesterday’s broadcast has become a controversy of Park Myung Soo pushing Seolhyun’s head. However, it is a misunderstanding. During the time of filming, the entire cast, including Park Myung Soo and Seolhyun, was on edge. At the time, all of the cast members were having a hard time as they were not able to have a proper meal. In this situation, Seolhyun accidentally dropped the egg [that Lee Moon Sik came by], which made Park Myung Soo nudge her head slightly as a way of scolding.”
The PD continued, “There was no problem at the time of filming. Park Myung Soo normally treats Seolhyun with affection. Please view it as a natural interaction between family members. I hope there are no misunderstandings amongst viewers.”
Meanwhile, the preview clip seems to have become a hot topic due to the cut of Seolhyun crying after the incident with Park Myung Soo occurs. Some netizens have expressed criticism toward Park Myung Soo for his action while others are putting the blame on the editing of the footage to intentionally stir controversy.
