The actors of upcoming 20th Century Fox film 'Kingsman: The Golden Circle' -Taron Egerton, Colin Firth, and Mark Strong - arrived in Korea this past September 19, to promote the film's upcoming premiere.
The three actors then carried out their first day of promotional schedules on September 20, but it seems the treatment the three received from their various schedules is infuriating Korean fans.
Taron Egerton, Colin Firth, and Mark Strong's first schedule was a 'Kakao TV' live interview broadcast, hosted by comedian/MC Kim Young Chul. But after tuning into the live broadcast, fans flooded the SNS of the interview's host 'KBS News' with complaints. Some complained that the actors had difficulty understanding Kim Young Chul's English, some complained that Kim Young Chul did too many unnecessary comedy impressions and made remarks to make himself stand out instead of the actors, and some complained that the interview questions had nothing to do with the upcoming film, instead asking the actors if they liked Korean food, if they knew their Korean nicknames, etc. Many demanded that the interview should have been carried out by Eric Nam.
