On August 31, SBS drama head Kim Young Sub stated, "We don't think it's something to be criticized that much. In fact, she's shown growth from her previous projects. There's prejudice against her because she's an idol star, and I know she has a lot of anti-fans. I don't think it's right to judge her acting based on that kind of prejudice."
He continued, "IU's acting was good, and it'll show in future broadcasts, so please look after her."
Ever since the premiere of 'Scarlet Heart: Ryeo', there has been criticism of IU as well as EXO Baekhyun's acting on the show. What did you think of the first episodes of the drama?
