Recently, a press conference was held for the release of the new movie 'Memoirs of A Murderer' starring famous actor Seol Kyung Kyu.

Actor Seol Kyung Kyu apologizes for calling AOA's Seolhyun the Korean equivalent of 'dumb blonde'

Actor Seol Kyung Kyu apologized for insulting Seolhyun.

During a press conference for their movie 'Memories of a Murderer', the actor said, "She has a 'baekchi' beauty. It's good for actresses to be 'baekchi'. I think it wil be memorable. I hope she does not lose her 'baekchi' beauty even when she's in her 30s and 40s." The term 'baekchi' is an insult used to describe someone stupid or idiotic, or someone who knows nothing. Saying that a woman has 'baekchi beauty' is the equivalent of insulting someone by calling them a 'dumb blonde' in English. (For reference, this is what Sunhwa was made fun of when she used to be on 'Invincible Youth'.)
