A photo attached to the text showed him posing with Kim Nam Gil.
At the 2012 KBS Drama Awards held on December 31, Jang Nara won the Female Excellence Award in the mini-series division.
Netizens pounced on the post, as Jang Nara and Kim Nam Gil had never shown they were close anywhere else and it made them wonder why Kim Nam Gil was celebrating Jang Nara′s win. They started to conclude that the two were probably dating each other.
A rep from Narajjang.com, Jang Nara′s agency, however, told enews on January 2, "We know that the two are close friends. They′re simply close as seniors and juniors; they′re not lovers, like most seem to think. They′re actually pretty awkward around each other because they′re so polite."
Kim Young Chun deleted the controversial post when it continued to rank in the keyword search charts of portals.
