The production team of the drama “Castaway Diva” has apologized after allegations were raised that they left behind a pile of rocks used for filming.

On the 13th of November, an online media outlet called “Jeju’s Voice” published an article titled “Controversy over Drama’s Nuisance: Unauthorized Filming and Leaving Behind a Pile of Rocks on Jeju Beach,” which included a photo showing thousands of rocks piled up on Hwangwooji Beach in Jeju.

The media outlet stated, “These rocks perfectly match the ones used in the tvN drama ‘Castaway Diva,’ which aired on the 28th of last month and featured a scene where the protagonist, Mok-ha, who has lived alone on a deserted island for 15 years, sends an ‘SOS’ signal using rocks. This news has already become a hot topic on social media.”

Quoting the informant, the media outlet reported, “I have often seen drama filming taking place in Jeju, but this is the first time I’ve seen such irresponsible behavior in terms of clean-up. Recently, there have been complaints about noise and restricted access during drama filming in urban areas, but this case seems more serious due to the natural damage caused.”

The media outlet also raised suspicions of unauthorized filming for the drama. The process of obtaining administrative cooperation and permits is essential for using and shooting on public beaches, but it was alleged that the drama was filmed without going through such procedures.

In response, a representative from the drama production company explained, “There is a possibility of additional filming after the summer shooting, so we gathered and left the rocks in one place after consulting with the village officials. However, we were not aware of the administrative process and did not receive administrative cooperation. We will restore the site to its original state as soon as possible.”

A city official also stated, “If unauthorized use is confirmed through on-site inspections, we will proceed with administrative procedures such as restoration orders.”
