"Mr. Queen"' production team apologizes over line 'belittling' Korea's national treasure

The production team of tvN's "Mr. Queen," a fusion of historical drama and fiction, has apologized over a controversial line that some people say belittled Korea's national treasure ― the Veritable Records of the Joseon Dynasty.

In the drama's second episode aired on Dec. 13, protagonist Kim So-yong (Queen Cheorin) ― played by Shin Hye-sun ― described the treasure as a "tabloid" that failed to provide authentic information about the 25th king of Joseon, Cheoljong (1831-1863) ― played by Kim Jung-hyun. The line immediately stirred debate among viewers, some of whom said the TV series played down the records listed in UNESCO's Memory of the World registry.

"We admit that the line was inappropriate ― we took this seriously and deleted that part," the production crew said Tuesday. "We also did not intend to depict any historical event or figure negatively, but wanted to give a laugh to people through our work. But we apologize for causing discomfort and will be more careful in the future."

Could be just a coincidence though... Who'd you like to see as part of the unit if they actually go on the show?

It's great that she had/has good people supporting her, everyone kept the whole thing a secret until after the baby was born. So, is everything against unwed women who want to be mothers in Korea? IVF is illegal? Sperm donors are illegal unless its your husband? It seems like everything is illegal for them.

At the start of the episode, Sunmi and Hani talked about their friendship. Hani said, “To be honest, I felt like I should be careful around you. You have more experience than me. What I mean by ‘being careful’ is that I wanted to listen to you more, I wanted to get to know you more, and I was curious about you.”
