SBS’s A Thousand Days’ Promise’s production crew and Soo Ae set out to firmly respond to the controversy and viewers’ complaints facing the drama. They announced that they would pay more careful attention to details, humbly accepting viewers’ comments.

A representative of Soo Ae’s agency STAR J said, “Soo Ae has been totally focusing on script and acting, so she was unaware of the details of the matters of clothes sponsor. Further, when the controversy over sponsored luxury brand clothes broke out, there was no way to fix the problem because the shooting had already been done till 10th episode. But for shooting later on, Soo Ae has been trying to wear plain clothes fit for her character while carefully discussing with stylists. The scenes that became an issue due to the appearance of luxurious bags will be re-filmed or re-edited to prevent misunderstandings.”

Soo Ae to End Luxury Brand Controversy

In particular, Soo Ae must have felt perplexed because the production crew and the actress’ stylists went through enough discussion on her clothes in advance. Soo Ae reportedly prepared a few shabby clothes but the production crew demand more stylish clothes, citing that Seo Yeon, Soo Ae’s character, should appear as a sexy woman.

For this reason, Soo Ae’s stylists prepared a few luxury brand items. To make things worse, the outside production company of the drama put up banners on the drama’s homepage to provide information on Soo Ae’s clothes.

The rep from the actress agency said, “Soo Ae is currently concentrating all her energy on portraying her character, Seo Yeon, who is suffering from Alzheimer′s. She has been agonizing over how to portray a woman who is poor but proud and strong while paying special attention to everything from vocalization to delivering lines. Her castmates and Kim Su Hyun, writer of the drama, are recognizing her efforts and speaking highly of her. We will resolve problems and do our best to make viewers feel empathy with her genuine acting.”

Soo Ae is acting as the character Seo Yeon, who lost her parents at an early age and worked up to becoming the chief at a publishing company. She broke up with her lover Ji Hyeong (Kim Rae Won) and was diagnosed with Alzheimer′s. Soo Ae was praised for her excellent portrayal of Seo Yeon’s composed, yet conflicted way of accepting her hardships.

So far, the drama has earned high ratings and praise, and many are speculating whether or not the drama will reach the 20 percent-mark in viewership rating with the development into the story of Seo Yeon’s ′pregnancy′ and potential marriage with Ji Hyeong.
