Musical actress Kim Sa Eun, who participated in the TV Chosun trot audition program Miss Trot 2, made headlines today after she shared a passionate kiss with her husband, Super Junior’s Sungmin, during her stage. Some cheered for their hot performance, but most frowned on their choice, saying it wasn’t the right time or place.
In the latest episode of Miss Trot 2, Kim Sa Eun faced off Byul Sa Rang for the one-on-one match. Kim chose “Really Really Like You” for her performance, and Sungmin made a surprise appearance in the middle to support his wife’s stage. The two showed off their perfect chemistry and even shared a passionate kiss on stage, exciting viewers.
However, the result was a letdown compared to the audiences’ hot reactions as masters unanimously selected Byul over Kim.
Afterward, Kim Sa Eun and Sungmin started to trend in major portal sites when netizens continued to wrangle over the couple’s performance. Some said that their stage was romantic, while most expressed discomfort over “their choice to kiss on a trot audition.”
Super Junior fans’ accumulated complaints over Sungmin’s marriage announcement seems to have taken quite a big part in these negative views. Sungmin announced her relationship with Kim Sa Eun in September 2013 and tied the knot in December. However, Super Junior fans demanded that Sungmin leave Super Junior, saying that he deceived his fans by acting rashly, and since then, Sungmin has temporarily suspended his group activities. Is it because he has gotten on fans’ “blacklist”? Even the viewers who watched Sungmin and Kim Sa Eun’s passionate performance are critical of the two.
