Controversy[edit]

On March 21, the broadcast of episodes 11 and 12 was peppered with incomplete CG editing and visible production notes such as "Darken windows more" and "Erase all frame outlets". In one instance, color bars were also shown in between two of the scenes. SBS later issued an apology, stating that "there were various CG scenes in the episode... However, they were aired without the completed CG work, and we apologize to the viewers for the accidents." In its statement SBS also apologized to everyone who has been working on the show, and stated that they will do their best in filming and editing in the future.[14][15] The oversight highlights the tight filming schedules in the South Korean broadcasting industry[16], and follows a similar incident in tvN's A Korean Odyssey where there were delays in removing the stunt actors' wires and processing the computer graphics.[17]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Originally scheduled to air for 36 episodes, the series was reduced by four episodes due to technical issues.[1]
  2. ^ Episodes 17 to 20, which were supposed to air on April 3 and 4, 2019 respectively, were pushed back a week to give time for the production team to work on the CG. A recap of the earlier episodes were shown in lieu of the suspension.
