July 7, newlyweds Eric and Na Hye Mi unexpectedly become the center of controversy after allegedly breaking a promise made with a clothing sponsor. However, it turns out the issue was a misunderstanding and a result of lack of communication.
Eric and Na Hye Mi returned from their honeymoon at the Maldives on the morning of July 7. Prior to their return, on July 6, the PR agency for their sponsor released an official request for photo coverage to reporters, detailing the time and place of arrival at the airport. According to reports, the time and place for airport photos had also been arranged with Eric and Na Hye Mi as well. When Eric and Na Hye Mi left through a different gate, missing all of the photographers that had been waiting at the airport, controversy arose.
