It added, "Kang Min Kyung, the advertiser and the agency promised to release all commercial videos starring Kang Min Kyung, including the internet commercial, after thorough discussion. We are sad that the promise has not been kept, thus sparking such controversies."

Kang Min Kyung said, "I′m sad that the video was released without my approval, but I believe the decision was made by the advertiser after much consideration. I have no power in the matter and it is up to the advertiser, so I will wait for their decision."

The controversy was sparked when a razor company released a commercial starring Kang Min Kyung through YouTube. In the video, Kang Min Kyung appears in short pants and a shirt that reveals one of her shoulders, and helps her ′boyfriend′ shave.

The video was received with hot debate from netizens, as they asserted that "the video is very suggestive."
