Kim Se Jeong’s response to the criticism over A Business Proposal for having a cliché and unrealistic plot
Kim Se Jeong has responded to negative comments regarding her and the drama A Business Proposal.
A Business Proposal is receiving great attention from the audience thanks to the both romantic and humorous content. However, the drama is still entangled in controversy because of the absurd, cheesy and clichéd plot. In particular, the “accident kiss” scene of Kang Tae Moo and Shin Ha Ri in the drama is similar to some other
Recently, Kim Se Jeong has responded to the audience’s comments. The actress said, “The first kiss scene of the main couple was in the second episode. However, at that time, Ahn Hyo Seop and I had just met, so we couldn’t help but be embarrassed.
The audience may say this kiss is cheesy, because if we fell in real life, we would have swollen lips and nosebleeds, which is certainly not romantic at all.”
The actress agrees with the fact that the film has many stereotypical details that have appeared in many other works. However, A Business Proposal’s highlight that retains its appeal lies in the way the plot develops.
Besides the constructive comments, Kim Se Jeong also encounters negative criticism. For malicious comments, the actress showed a cold and indifferent attitude.
She said, “I feel much more comfortable doing live broadcasts on the paid VLIVE platform. I know that there are many people who became my fans late, so I purposely turned the livestream on the normal account. However, I’m seeing many comments that upset me right now. Since this is a space where everyone gathers together, it would be much better if you only say pretty things and things that can make people smile”.
Currently, A Business Proposal is still reaping great success and continuously setting records in viewership ratings. As soon as episode 8 was broadcast, the series reached the Top 1 position of Netflix in many countries.
This is also the episode that recorded the highest real-time rating with 21.18%. At the same time, the national average rating is 10.8%, breaking the previous record in episode 6 of 10.1%.
