The agency continued, Kim Gura spoke on the phone with Kim Saeng Min and apologized directly to him. They are all actually close and the atmosphere before filming was very good. So they spoke comfortably and it was fine at the time but came across in a way that was uncomfortable for viewers. We apologize once again.
