I didn’t know much about Kang Min Kyung, but wanted to see her and Seunggi finally duet “Just Like the First Time” at least once live, since I really love the song…
But after seeing this May 31st Strong Heart episode, I find her so annoying! Like, how do you sit there and call someone SUNBAENIM like that and then so rudely talk about how you thought the wallet was old-person feel, too brandname logo’d, and how you exchanged it for something you really like now?! That’s supposed to be funny?!
Ok, as a fellow fashion girl, I totally get her. I usually don’t like brandname stuff with big logos all over it either. Most girls don’t, precisely because it is too in-your-face, which is not what you want to go for. So I understand how she felt, especially since he included a gift receipt, which is usually a signal that you can feel free to exchange the item. And it’s very possible, this whole scenario was somewhat scripted…
BUT, it’s how she talked about the gift. And even if you thought the manager bought it, the fact that it was a gift from Seunggi, who is your sunbaenim, you could’ve at least talked about the wallet not being your style and exchanging it without dissing his personal selection choice.
But, afterwards I felt bad for her because Korean netizens were totally mean and I can only imagine how terrible she felt. She should’ve really known better than to diss the sincerity of Korea’s beloved Lee Seunggi! Because he (sunbaenim!) took it all in stride and laughed it off, it made her comments seem even more rude! Not sure if other guys would’ve responded the same way! (Definitely not Heechul!)
I figured we’d get a public apology soon enough, especially since it was looking like she could easily go from being like the girl-next-door to being public enemy #1. So I’m glad she finally took to twitter to apologize. Although I’m not sure how much her tweet helped in dispelling how she acted on Strong Heart and her image!
I apologize! If I knew that Sunbaenim [Seunggi] had personally selected [the wallet]… My fault, I’m stupid, a variety dummy… It’s hard… I was trying to be funny ㅠㅜ Stupid Stupid… At times like this, I will work harder in album preparations!!! I’ll meet you through good music!

And aw…. on Seunggi usually personally selecting gifts for people. A lot of people were saying they would’ve been happy to receive a gift from Seunggi, even if they thought it was from his manager! But to be fair to Kang Min Kyung, Seunggi’s style isn’t usually haute couture stuff! That’s why he has (crazy) Cody!
And, I’ve changed my mind. Not interested in seeing Seunggi sing his song together with Kang Min Kyung! I’m fine with him just using his lip-synching back-up dancer…
Just like the first time [Summer 2010]
And I really liked Seunggi’s black sweater! Especially the cut-out parts!
Actually, I have a very similar black sweater/cardigan and I love it!
