Upcoming drama “It’s Okay, It’s Love” is gearing up for its much awaited premiere, starting off with a wacky and creative video teaser starring lead actors Jo In Sung and Gong Hyo Jin.
In the teaser clips, Jo In Sung and Gong Hyo Jin put on their dancing shoes, and displayed their fun and slightly awkward dance moves, rising the anticipation for the premiere of their drama.
Several teaser photos were also released; however, netizens noticed a striking similarity between the teasers, and a concept photo taken by film artist Celia Rowlson Hall.
The production team from GT Entertainment and CJ E&M acknowledged what they did, and expressed their regret, saying, “We sincerely give our apologies for disappointing our viewers.”
“To fully express the concept of love that we are trying to portray in the drama, we researched videos and photos online, and we found one that suited our message. Due to our determination to express the message and themes of the drama, we made the mistake of borrowing the concept and image of the original video.”
“We will delete the videos that have been uploaded on our homepage, and we will see to it that it will not be used for promotion by the media.”
As of writing time, the videos and teasers in question have been deleted.
Meanwhile, “It’s Okay, It’s Love” is scheduled to premiere on July 23 following the conclusion of “You’re All Surrounded.”
