Viewers of MBC's 'Lucky Romance', particularly those who've also watched drama 'Kill Me, Heal Me' in the past and/or are fans of Ji Sung, are outraged for a derogatory reference from the currently airing drama's 6th episode. 

On the episode, female lead Hwang Jung Eum meets up with a man who goes by 'Red Knit Cha Cha', after a shaman tells her that she needs to sleep with a man whose zodiac animal is a tiger. To check that the man's sign is really a tiger, Hwang Jung Eun scans his id, learning that his real name is Cha Do Hyun. But in the end, it turned out that this Cha Do Hyun was actually a sex offender, and the police show up to arrest him. 

Those of you who watched 'Kill Me, Heal Me' will remember that the name Cha Do Hyun also belongs to Ji Sung's former drama character. Because in 'Kill Me, Heal Me', Cha Do Hyun was a man riddled with guilt after failing to protect a friend from abuse, viewers found it incredibly inappropriate and derogatory that the same name was used for such a villainous character in 'Lucky Romance'. 

Viewers took to 'Lucky Romance's website to write, "Don't use the name Cha Do Hyun like that. Yesterday's broadcast was the definition of shock and horror. Did you know what kind of character Cha Do Hyun was in 'Kill Me, Heal Me' when you wrote that?""I couldn't suppress my shock and anger toward the fact that a former drama's lead character was turned into a criminal", and more. 

What do you make of this recent controversy?

Oh please, they think this is derogatory? Imagine how I feel when they use the name Dillan for a villain. Every time I turn around there is some evil character with the name -_-*

I get that it's derogatory and stuff... But it's only a tv show... That's what makes dramas really interesting to me sometimes! Like when an actor that is known for playing the good protagonist roles suddenly switches to a villainous criminal-type character. I think people should get over it, to be honest.

Eh it's just awkward I don't think they meant to do it like that

I guess this is as messed up as Anna Paquin and Jeff Daniels casted in The Squid and the Whate after playing a daughter/father role from Fly Away Home.
