The drama came under fire for using Jessica’s Korean name as deceased and listing Krystal’s Korean name on the guest list of a funeral home. 

However, on April 25, a rep of ‘Strong Family’ stated to Sports DongA that they did not intend to target the celebrity sisters. The rep said, “It’s nonsense to say that we tried to target Jessica and Krystal. Jung Soo Yeon and Jung Soo Jung were coincidentally used. We have not thought of it that way at all and didn’t think it will lead to a controversy. Throwing shade at Jessica and Krystal is nonsense.”

Despite their denial, netizens continue to believe that the name usage was not a coincidence and the sisters deserve an apology.
