Los Angeles journalist David Yi wrote a succulently juicy account of running into Se7en at the KoreAm Journal Unforgettable 2008 awards ceremony in November.
According to Yi, Se7en a HUGE DIVA!!! He’s also delusional, but we’ve always known that.
Here are some scandalous, image-damaging highlights from the encounter:
[on Se7en’s performance] “I saw many people walking out, many to the bar.”
[on diva behavior] “He was backstage and didn’t even go onstage even when we tried to push him. He was too busy looking at his face and playing with his hair in front of a mirror.”
[on assimilating with others] “Se7en then left across the room to greet some non-Asians, giving them high-fives, exchanging handshakes. A false sense of Americanism.”
[on photo-ops] “Instead of simply smiling and putting an arm around a person’s shoulder like a normal person posing for the camera, he turned his back sideways, cocked his head up, and put two fingers on his lips in a shushing motion.”
[on speaking English] “There was no dialogue, no back and forth conversation. It was me asking him questions he didn’t care answering at a venue he could care less for, in front of Asian Americans he would rather choose not to associate with.”
I always knew that Se7en’s American debut wasn’t doing too hot, but this is worse than I imagined. Is his really how he plans to win over nonexistent fans? Se7en’s got a lot of nerve to act this arrogant for being a Verizon Wireless salesclerk.
