KDrama Dear M was supposed to premiere on February 2021. The drama of a student group, where NCT member Jaehyun plays a computer science student, has been delayed further to this year. Park Hye Su’s controversy continues to affect the drama’s production.
Dispatch Korea has already cleared Park Hye Su’s bullying controversy. The netizens who accused the actress of bullying turned out to be acquaintances in middle school. However, despite this proof, the police investigation is still ongoing.
A recent discourse started after Dear M appeared on the iQiyi platform. Hence, a KBS official gave their statement through Star News. They stated it would be difficult to air the drama in the first half of 2022. KBS will wait for the police investigation’s result before discussing the broadcast proceedings.
KBS postponed the programming indefinitely. Park Hye Su’s agency Studio Santa Claus filed legal action against the netizens who created the bullying controversy in March 2021, and the proceedings are continued.
