Actress Park Eun Bin is gaining attention for her hit K-Drama Castaway Diva. Recently, she addressed the controversy regarding the production team’s “irresponsible filming.”
Last month, the production team for tvN‘s Castaway Diva was criticized when news outlets reported that they filmed on a beach in Jeju and did not clean up after themselves.
The Castaway Diva production team apologized and admitted “there were shortcomings in the process” of filming.
Park Eun Bin, who plays the lead role in Castaway Diva, also recently addressed the controversy. On December 4, she attended an interview for Castaway Diva and shared how she felt about the news of the K-Drama’s “irresponsible” filming.
It’s such a shame. There are facts beyond facts, and there are situations that the public doesn’t know about, but there’s nothing we can do about that… There are situations that may feel unfair depending on one’s perspective.

She also stated that nobody meant to create disturbances or controversy and expressed her regret about the situation.
No one wanted to create controversy. Everyone put in their best effort, but expected things made it difficult for people.

Although there have been many complaints about noise and traffic restrictions due to filming K-Dramas, this situation gained more attention because it involved environmental damage.
The Castaway Diva production team also faced allegations of unauthorized filming without obtaining administrative cooperation and permits for communal sleeping areas. In response to these allegations, the production team issued an apology, expressing regret and promising to restore the site as soon as possible.
Castaway Diva premiered on October 28 and recently aired its last episode on December 3.
