Production Teams Of JTBC’s New Drama Release Apology Regarding Recent Incident At Hospital
The production teams of “Although I Am Not a Hero” (literal title) have released a statement regarding a recent issue that surfaced.
Previously, a post was uploaded on an online community, writing, “The drama production team is too harsh. My wife was in the emergency room, so I was rushing to her, but they stopped me from going because they were filming a drama. Fortunately, my wife was okay, but I felt like I would throw a fit if something happened [to her].”
As this gave rise to a controversy over the production team’s abuse of power, the hospital’s side added an explanation on September 11 that it was a certain section that was controlled by the production team and that the visitors’ movements were not obstructed.
Later that day, the production team released the following statement:
This is SLL and STORY & PICTURES MEDIA, the production companies of “Although I Am Not a Hero.”
We would like to inform you regarding the filming of “Although I Am Not a Hero” at the hospital which took place on September 10.
We apologize for any inconvenience caused to the guardian even though we filmed without entirely blocking the visitors’ movement after consulting with the hospital.
We will pay even closer attention and make every effort to avoid any inconvenience during filming. Thank you.
