Eagle-eyed viewers were recently upset with the response they received from the camp over at ‘What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim”! The drama itself has a very large fanbase, but one of the posters that was released has jeopardized viewers’ happiness. The poster shows a striking number of similarities to a photoshoot done previously by ‘Glamour’ magazine, featuring Ryan Reynolds and Elyse Taylor.
When asked about the similarities tvN simply replied, ‘The poster in question is not the drama's main poster. It's an homage we gave to a reference and is only an online poster. We'll be more careful next time.’ Viewers are buying the excuse, and many have stated that a homage only works when everyone can easily recognize the original work. Viewers are still bitter that the broadcast network has just waved away the accusations rather than directly addressing it.
