“Heart Signal 4” Production Team Responds To Allegations Regarding Timeline Manipulation And Product Placement

Channel A’s “Heart Signal 4” has released a statement on recent allegations regarding the production of the show.

Recently, “Heart Signal 4” was swept up in allegations that they manipulated the timeline of events. Netizens claimed that the production team manipulated the timeline because the date written for Shin Min Kyu’s date with Kim Ji Min was a day when he said he did not have any plans.

On July 5, a source from the production team shared, “Allegations were raised regarding the sequence of the scenes after the malatang date, but there was a mistake in writing the date. Due to a mistake in the captions, Monday was mistakenly written as Tuesday.”

They emphasized, “[The portrayal] of emotions were correct, but there was a mistake in the captioning. In the future, we will include how many days it has been since they entered the house for flashbacks that are necessary to understand the cast members’ emotions. We will pay more thorough attention.”

Further allegations were raised that the hand cream Han Gyeo Re gifted to Kim Ji Young is a product of a brand on the production support list shown at the end of the broadcast, raising suspicions that they inserted product placement as if they were delivering a gift.

Regarding the product placement allegations, the representative clarified, “It is true that we received cooperation for the filming location after discussion with Han Gyeo Re, but the gift was personally bought by Han Gyeo Re on his own accord.”

They continued, “The cast members personally think over and decide the date locations, and they also personally pay for the date and gift expenses. However, if the location that the cast member wants is difficult to book, we occasionally receive cooperation for the location after consulting with the cast member. Most of the date locations are places that the cast members cherish or chose after long thought, so please keep an eye on them.”

“Heart Signal” is a romance variety series from Channel A in which eight strangers live together for a month in the same house. Their time together is watched over by a group of panelists with varying experiences in dating and love.

“Heart Signal 4” airs every Friday at 10:50 p.m. KST.
