Despite the success of the streaming drama “Anna,” its director expressed her disappointment at how streaming platform Coupang Play presented the show.
Reports revealed that director Lee Joo Young was disappointed with the changes done by the streaming platform to the format of the drama.
According to the director’s lawyer, “Anna was supposed to be an 8-episode drama 45-61 minutes each episode. However, Coupang Pang made changes without input from the director and created a 6-episode drama.”
The director’s legal counsel also explained why she was not happy with how the show turned out. “The changes were made to the length of the drama, but its prose, filming, editing, and narrative were all damaged by Coupang Play.”
The lawyer also reported that the director wanted to remove her name from the credits, but the streaming platform has yet to act on her request.
Coupang Play released the drama series, starring Bae Suzy in the titular role, on June 24.
