The official announcement stated, "The fake ID shown on 'Lucky Romance' was just set that way. It did not have any intentions to make a derogatory reference. Not even 1%. However, it is our fault if it offended 'Kill Me, Heal Me' fans. We apologize, and we will be more careful." 


Viewers; reactions toward the controversy seem to be mixed, with some viewers being upset at 'Lucky Romance' for negatively using Ji Sung's character name, while others believe the issue is unworthy of criticism.

    isn't it just over reaction? I think They just associated the name to kill me heal me because in  both dramas it's the same female lead.

    One name can be used by few people and does not necessarily belong to one particular person only.
