Following a dispute with director Hwang In-hyuk over her working conditions, Han Ye-seul failed to show up for her scheduled filming on August 14–15, 2011, then flew to the United States on August 16. Due to her absence, an episode was cancelled and instead a special featuring highlights of the series was aired. It was the first instance of a leading actor abruptly leaving in the middle of a Korean drama shoot. After extensive press coverage and threats of legal action, Han returned to the set on August 18 and apologized to her fans.
