Actress Kim Tae-hee, well known for her beauty, was found to have achieved perfect scores in all subjects during three years in middle school.Okay, that's fine and everything, but I find it very troubling that MBC would feel they have any business trying to track down her middle school records. Middle school! Sure, this was a good thing, but is it really anybody's business? Is it something relevant? What if it had been something bad?
An MBC TV program got its hands on her school records and disclosed them to the media ahead of the launch of the new entertainment program "Star the Secret."
"The school records showed that Kim had claimed top places during the entire three years, with perfect scores in all subjects at the school. It's unbelievable," an MBC staff member said.
I've made no secret of the fact that I don't like how the media — in North America, in East Asia, in Europe — treats celebrities as if they are not real people deserving (and needing) privacy.
