The producers of the upcoming Netflix series “You Have Done Well” (literal title) have apologized for causing inconvenience to locals while filming.
On April 26, someone who had discovered a filming site for “You Have Done Well” posted to an online community. The author of the post described their visit to the Gochang Green Barley Field Festival, where the drama was being filmed near a rapeseed field. They wrote that they were barred from entering a certain area due to filming for the drama, so they went in another direction to photograph the rapeseed flowers. Although the drama filming was still a long way off, they said they were told not to take photos.
While the drama was not explicitly named in the post, it was later revealed to have been “You Have Done Well.”
In response, Pan Entertainment, the drama’s production company, stated, “First and foremost, we want to sincerely apologize to citizens who have experienced inconveniences.” We tried to minimize inconvenience in the process of safe filming and preventing spoilers from leaking, but we apologize once again for failing to pay closer attention to those who spent their valuable time visiting [the festival].”
“We deeply thank citizens for being understanding of our filming, and we will work hard in the future to be more careful in our filming process,” they added.
The Korean title “You Have Done Well,” written in Jeju dialect, will tell the adventurous life stories of Ae Soon and Gwan Shik, who were born on Jeju Island in the 1950s. IU will play the bold and rebellious Ae Soon, while Park Bo Gum will play the quiet but dependable Gwan Shik.
