In particular, the actor took pictures with Kim Joo-hyung and smiled at the audience.

Ryu Jun-yeol has been harshly criticized by the public as he did not directly give any statement about his romantic relationship with Han So-hee when breaking up with her. His ex-lover Hyeri made a comment upon hearing the news of his new love with Han So-hee but she later apologized. Han So-hee also made efforts to explain misunderstandings and transit love suspicions. Nevertheless, Ryu Jun-yeol kept hiding his face and only delivered his positions via his agency even when he acknowledged his romance or announced his breakup.

Aside from his relationship issues, Ryu Jun-yeol also stayed silent regarding criticism of his qualifications as a Greenpeace ambassador. 

Earlier, the actor faced a backlash from netizens when he expressed his love for playing golf, known to be one of the contributors to damaging the environment, despite working as a promotional ambassador for the environmental organization Greenpeace. As a controversy broke out, Greenpeace released a statement promising to review the regulations regarding their ambassador. Once again, only Greenpeace spoke up and the actor is still nowhere to be seen despite being the main character of criticism.

Although Ryu Jun-yeol has not made any official statement himself until now, it is difficult for him to avoid the matters as he will meet with reporters for the promotion of his upcoming project, which is Netflix’s original series “The 8 Show”. Attention is on whether Ryu Jun-yeol will directly speak about his controversies at the drama press conference this time.
