SBS drama 'Super Family' is under firing for using Jessica and Krystal's Korean names.


SEE ALSO: Krystal says she worked really hard to perfect her Goddess character in 'Bride of the Water God'



On the April 24 episode, Jessica and Krystal's Korean names were briefly captured on a guest list of a funeral home. Jessica's Korean name, Jung Soo Yeon, was listed under deceased while Krystal's Korean name, Jung Soo Jung, was written beside it under guests. The message for the deceased also read, "Unnie I miss you... I love you..."




Netizens are confident that the name usage is not a coincidence, and many found it highly offensive even though the scene only lasted for a brief second.


Criticism toward 'Super Family' continued with comments, "Daebak.. how could they think of such thing;;;; And the way they put unnie;;; I'm getting goosebumps", "They targeted them in such an obvious way!", "What were they thinking...", "Coincidence or not, they need to apologize. It's offensive."

Was gonna say that ppl are overeacting again but... This seems too much of a coincidence... Be it on purpose or accident, they should've been more thoughtful and careful

Maybe it's me but I felt like they didn't do it on purpose.... :/ There are many people named Jung Soojung and Jung Sooyeon in Korea. If they wanted to target the Jung sisters then they would have wrote their English names too or whatever...

lmao, its so obvious they are doing on purpose. I mean they used jessica's korean name under deceased, and put krystal' korean name beside it under guests. And at the side, it even wrote :" unnie i miss you". How in the world can they be such a coincedence that they put jessica as deceased and krystal saying she miss her? They didn't put english name because that would be wayyy too obvious.

I hope they don't see it because they're really nice girls. They probably don't care too since they're doing there own stuff.

Those two have very common name. Also why would such a thing be done on purpose? For what reason? It just doesn't make sense.

Someone has a lot of time on their hands, to pause a whole drama episode just to see what they find to be offended for I guess

It most likely wasn't on purpose, I'd like to think.
