The overseas copyright of ‘Joseon Exorcist’ will also be terminated.
The production of the SBS drama ‘Joseon Exorcist’ (screenplay Park Gye-ok/Director Shin Kyung-soo), which was decided to abolish as a result of controversy over history distortion, repeatedly conveyed the intention of apologizing.
Studioplex and Crabworks, the production companies of ‘Joseon Exorcist’, said in an official statement on the 26th, “First of all, we apologize to the viewers. We agree with the seriousness of the situation, and we will do my best to minimize the damage to all the staff and people involved in the work.”
Companies added, “We are in the process of canceling the contract for the overseas copyright case related to ‘Joseon Exorcist’.” “All overseas streaming that was in service has already been released or is scheduled to be released today.”
Earlier on the 22nd, ‘Joseon Exorcist’ received fierce protest from viewers as it was pointed out that Chinese-style props such as moon cakes were used during the first broadcast on the 22nd, and that the depictions of characters such as Taejong and Chungnyeongdaegun were far from actual history.
