“The Golden Spoon” has responded to speculation of favoritism for certain cast members.
After MBC released their latest behind-the-scenes video from the set of “The Golden Spoon,” many viewers expressed concern and confusion that the drama was showing favoritism by promoting certain actors over the lead stars. Although the video title and description focused on the drama’s lead actor BTOB‘s Yook Sungjae, it appeared that his co-star Son Woo Hyun had much more screentime.
In response to viewers’ concerns, a representative of the drama shared, “‘The Golden Spoon’ was the best drama where the actors showcased the best teamwork. The set atmosphere could not have been better, with the supporting actors becoming central members. We apologize for inconveniencing the actors and the viewers who love our drama through this controversy.”
They continued to emphasize the peaceful and good-natured set atmosphere, commenting, “Like the idols that they are, main actors Yook Sungjae, Jung Chaeyeon, and Yeonwoo all take lead and do not hesitate in promoting the project. It’s to the point where they step up and take care of Lee Jong Won and Son Woo Hyun, who are not as familiar with making-of videos.”
Based on the webtoon of the same name, “The Golden Spoon” is a drama about a student born into a poor family who uses a magical golden spoon to swap fates with a friend born into a wealthy family. The drama’s final two episodes will air this week on November 11 and 12 at 9:50 p.m. KST.
