Viewers displeased with 'What's Wrong With Secretary Kim's response to poster plagiarism accusations

Viewers are not buying 'What's Wrong With Secretary Kim's excuse.

While many love the drama, one of the drama's special posters has been accused of plagiarizing a photoshoot from magazine 'Glamour'. Many pointed out that the position, the setting, the cotton candy, and even the outfits of the pair were similar to the original photo.

tvN explained, "The poster in question is not the drama's main poster. It's an homage we gave to a reference and is only an online poster. We'll be more careful next time." However, viewers aren't buying the excuse. Many pointed out that an homage only works when everyone can obviously recognize the original work, as well as that the broadcasting network waved off the accusations rather than apologizing. 

What do you think about the controversy and the explanation?
