The Little Women replica from South Korea has already been accused of plagiarizing the original show after only airing its first two episodes.
The parallels between the drama’s poster and a promotional material released in 2016 by the Japanese cosmetics firm Shiseido were first brought to light earlier this week by internet users. According to them, both include a background that is blue, and the primary focus of each is on individuals strolling while their shadows are cast in front of them.
The problem was quickly addressed by a representative from the movie Little Women, who stated the following: “This poster is our teaser poster with the concept of three siblings and their shadows walking towards a bright place. It’s the making of the company in charge of [our] design after reviewing multiple works. In the future, we will pay even more meticulous attention through in-depth pre-reviews.”
The timeless novel written by Louisa May Alcott and turned into a film and a musical during the course of its production history is the basis for the musical Little Women. Kim Go Eun, Nam Ji Hyun, and Park Ji Hu are the showrunners for the Korean adaptation, which is a 12-episode series. The actor Song Joong Ki made a special guest appearance in the most recent episode, and he made a reference to Vincenzo in his appearance.
