SBS drama 'Super Family' is under fire for using Jessica and Krystal's Korean names and depicting the former one as deceased.
On the April 24th episode, viewers of the drama spotted a scene at a funeral home where Krystal and Jessica's names were used in the guestbook. Jessica's name, Jung Sooyeon, was written as the deceased, and Krystal's name was written as a visitor along with the message ("Unni, I miss you. I love you.")
Viewers took offense to depicting a live celebrity as dead and criticized the producers. Here are some of the comments:
"Daebak.. How could they think of such a thing... And the way they put unnie... I'm getting goosebumps", "What were they thinking...", and "Coincidence or not, they need to apologize. It's offensive."
