On January 22 broadcast of KBS 2TV’s “TV Time Travel,” actor Lee Hoon talked about actress Park Joon Geum.

Lee Hoon commented, “Park Joon Geum is such a cool woman. We nicknamed her Octopus. She’s from a very wealthy family. She had a lot of money even if she didn’t work, so she treated a lot of people. It turns out she had a huge inheritance from her father.”

He went on to add, “Even when she was a rookie actress, she’d talk back to the producers if they spoke down to her or asked her to pour them a drink. At one time, she slapped a producer who insisted that she pour him a drink. As a result, she was blacklisted by him and couldn’t appear on TV for six months.” Fellow actress Geum Bo Ra chimed in and said, “I have been blacklisted many times as well.”
