K-pop fans criticise Lee Hyori's 'ugly' boyfriend


The gorgeous Lee Hyori, who was the highest paid female Korean singer in 2006, caused a controversy when she admitted last month that she was dating a man called Lee Sang Soon.

The news caused a case of beauty and the beast reaction for K-pop's sexiest female star.

Mr Lee, a singer-songwriter, is "ugly" - especially when compared to the attractive men whom Lee has dated, such as Rain, Lee Seo Jin and Choi Sung Wook.

Many think he is not "worthy" of the stunning beauty.

Wrote mizz_cindy on the AsianTown website: "omg eww he hella ugly."

Mr Lee's detractors complain that he is chubby, has single eyelids and sports a substantial nose, all of which contrast significantly with Lee's "sexy eyes, sharp nose and fairskin".

Some netizens also felt that it didn't help that Mr Lee probably only earns a fraction of what she does.

So who is this 30-something Average Joe who has captured the heart of a K-pop goddess?

No offence to Hyori but most korean girls wouldn't even be considered pretty if they had not done so much cosmetic surgeries; so what gives them the right to criticize this guy for his looks?

Maybe her BF has something that can make her real happy. Like long tongue or big equipment.

Fans just got to grow up. Nobody is perfect in this world, not even her.
