“Superman Returns” Producer Addresses Controversy Regarding Its Similarities to “Dad! Where Are We Going?”
On December 29, there was a press conference and end-of-year meeting for KBS2′s “Superman Returns.”
Kang Bong Kyu said, “When I first planned it, I did anticipate some controversy due to the similarities. However, there are so many differences from ‘Dad! Where Are We Going?’ that I don’t think I can even say them all.”
He then said, “We wanted to portray everyday life, not travel. So we tried to distance ourselves as much as possible and show the more natural sides. In that basic philosophy, the shows are different.”
Meanwhile, the 58th episode of “Superman Returns” recorded 19.6 percent according to the viewer ratings research company Nielsen Korea, which is up 2.0 percent from the previous episode. This puts “Superman Returns” at the top of the viewer rating list for its time slot for an astounding 26 weeks in a row.
