Director of 'Anna' starring Suzy to file lawsuit against streaming platform Coupang Play

AKP STAFF

The director of 'Anna' starring Suzy is seeking to file a lawsuit against the streaming platform Coupang Play.

The hit drama streamed exclusively on the new streaming platform, and according to reports, director Lee Joo Young is unhappy with the changes Coupang Play made to the drama's format. Lee Joo Young's lawyer stated, "Anna was supposed to be an 8-episode drama 45-61 minutes each episode. However, Coupang Pang made changes without input from the director and created a 6-episode drama."

The lawyer continued, "The changes were made to the length of the drama, but its prose, filming, editing, and narrative were all damaged by Coupang Play." The director has further requested her name be removed from the credits, but Coupang Play has yet to respond to her request.

Coupang Play basically sabotaged their own original series, not only didn't release it internationally. They also edited with no consent to director thus neglecting the hardwork of the production, viewers being robbed of complete drama.

Despite that, Anna did well and even brought subscribers for them from being nugu platform to being #3 in SK. And this is what they did in return.
