We all know and love Park Shin Hye for her talent and fashion sense, both on and off the screen, but this time the very attention to fashion and beauty that has captured the hearts of many fans has caused some controversy. In a recent episode of Doctor Crush, actress Park Shin Hye was seen on screen with fingernail art as she tends to a patient, however, this seemingly minor detail has caused a stir in the netizen communities. Shortly after the episode aired, there were many netizens attacking the actress for the unrealistic detail. Unfortunately, Park Shin Hye's apology for the incident has only made matters worse...

On August 10th Park Shin Hye came under fire by netizens for the nail art that she was wearing while filming Doctor Crush. Netizens complained of how unrealistic the actress' nail art was for the show. 

Shortly after the complaints, SBS responded with apologies for the lack of realness that the nail art created. Hours later Park Shin Hye also went onto her Instagram account to personally apologize for her nails. Unfortunately, Park Shin Hye's apology only made matters worse as some netizens claimed that her tone was sarcastic. This fallout caused the actress to go back onto her account to edit her apology, but this still did not seem to satisfy the angry fans. Currently, the posts have been deleted off her account altogether. You can see Park Shin Hye's initial and edited apology, along with the picture she posted of her polish free fingers below.

"I'll greet you in the remaining four episodes with neater nails. I decided to get (nail arts) done to hide a complex of mine but I suppose I'll remove it if it made the viewers so uncomfortable. I can remove it. Nothing hard about that.. Everyone! The weather's really hot lately. Don't needlessly get angered over something like this! I'd be grateful if you tuned in every week to watch 'Doctors' from the comfort of your room to see what happens to Hyejung, and our loving Kang Soo, who's sick... and to also see what happens to our sick Kang Soo!! Anyway, I know that my thumb nail is ugly. I'll work harder on my acting to make sure that the ugliness doesn't show ^-^ so please don't attack my nails. Hope everyone has a happy day. See you next week with 'Doctors'!!"

Some of the netizens comments below:

[+709, -159] The way she talks... her attitude's starting to show...

[+463, -105] The nail art was so wrong though. I think she's too focused on looking pretty. At least she's a good actor and we all know she's pretty already so I hope she works on becoming an actor who can catch these details about her role.

[+163, -12] Viewers had every right to criticize her on that but she's responding as if people are just picking a fight with her because it's hot and they're bored. Sure her nails aren't that important but it's wrong of her to treat the people criticizing her as if they're weird for thinking so.

[+155, -18] Her apology reads like "fine I'll remove it now screw off ㅡㅡ"

[+145, -22] Wow look at her attitude..

[+142, -13] So many people unveiling their true colors lately..

[+116, -17] Huk... her initial apology sounded like she was so peeved

[+105, -10] What's up with her tone? Viewers were distracted by her nails and rightfully criticized her so. Isn't it her job to make sure she's living up to her character? Instead she's more worried about looking pretty on camera without a care for her character in a medical drama ㅡㅡ you can tell she has an attitude from the way she worded this

[+94, -11] Quite an aggressive tone. It sounds like she wrote it after reading some hateful comments and got pissed. She should've spoken in response to the fans and viewers who criticized her with good intentions. What is she doing?

[+79, -7] If any other female celebrity had acted like this, people would be up in arms but everyone's more lenient because it's Park Shin Hye. Imagine if Lee Sung Kyung wrote something like this? She'd be dust by now. I think all celebrities would benefit from staying off of SNS after seeing this.

Did you feel the nail art was intrusive to her part as a doctor and is the criticism of her apology warranted? Let us know below!
