[OSEN=김수형 기자] The filming team of ‘Pyramid Game’, which is scheduled to be released next year, was embroiled in controversy for filming a nuisance that blocked a school zone, and issued an official apology.
On the 18th, an exposé was posted on various online communities under the title, ‘Another controversial filming nuisance roadblock.’ According to writer A, the ‘Pyramid Game’ production team blocked the school zone.
Mr. A revealed, “Last week, we blocked the sidewalk on the way to school and filmed it, and today it happened again. They put video equipment on the children’s way to school to film a drama. No one came out and gave safety instructions while filming.”
In particular, Mr. A said, “Even the sidewalks and bicycle paths were blocked, and the children walked on the road. What is this happening on a normal school day? I am angry that filming had to be done during the children’s school hours. Avoid school hours and let the children walk on the sidewalk.” “Please allow me to walk,” he pleaded angrily.
In response, netizens also raised their voices, saying, “You can’t believe they blocked the entire school zone,” “Controversy over nuisance filming again, when will they wake up?” and “Please be careful when filming outside, not just in school zones.”
Accordingly, the production team of ‘Pyramid Game’ also released a statement on the 18th, the same day. Regarding the controversy over the nuisance at the filming site, the production team said, “We have confirmed that it caused inconvenience to walking at the filming location last week. We sincerely apologize for not paying more attention during the production process. We will ensure safety through more thorough on-site management in the future.” “We will strengthen our efforts and prevent unpleasant incidents from happening again,” he said, officially apologizing.
