One of the posters for tvN’s drama “What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim’ has been accused of plagiarizing a photoshoot from an American magazine.

While “What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim” successfully aired its first episode on June 6, netizens accused the drama for copying a photoshoot from magazine ‘Glamour’ for one of its posters.

In the “plagiarized” poster, Park Seo-Joon and Park Min-Young are posing with pink cotton candy in their hands. Furthermore, the two are sitting on the steps, Park Seo-Joon in a suit and Park Min-Young in a pink dress.

However, if you look at a photoshoot of Ryan Reynolds in the February edition of ‘Glamour’ from 2008, you can find the same details. Ryan Reynolds is also in a suit with his partner in a pink dress, holding pink cotton candy, and sitting on the steps.

Soon afterwards, a representative of “What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim” released an official apology. They said, “the mentioned poster is not the main poster for the drama. In fact, we had designed this online poster to pay homage to the reference. However, we will pay more attention to details in the future.”

Meanwhile, the drama is off to a good start with its first episode that aired on June 6. “What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim” is based on a popular webtoon series of the same name, by Kim Myung-Mi. It airs on tvN on Wednesdays and Thursdays at 9:30 PM, KST.
