According to exclusive information from Korea’s Naver site on October 13, recently, the movie The Escape Of The Seven had a major disturbance in the film crew. Specifically, the film’s main director, Joo Dong Min, suddenly announced his departure from the project when the film recently began filming part 2.
Director Joo Dong Min
The Battle for Survival is the next big budget project of writer Kim Soon Ok – director Joo Dong Min after Penthouse. The first part with director Joo Dong Min has now finished filming and will finish broadcasting in November. Recently, the actors have continued filming part 2 but without director Joo. Instead, the film’s co-producer Oh Joon Hyuk replaced Joo Dong Min as the film’s main director.
The audience was extremely confused, especially when the reason director Joo left the film crew was not given. Although filming was not interrupted, many people worried that the quality of the film would be affected. Many rumors say that the problem is because The Battle for Survival encountered too many negative reactions. The film was criticized and boycotted for its excessively violent content, causing it to be labeled 19+ in recent developments.
The problem is so serious that the Korean Communications Standards Commission (KCSC) has received many complaints from people about the highly provocative content of Survival Fight. The content of the complaint includes details surrounding the horrifying deaths of the characters in each episode; the character overusing illegal substances and the female student giving birth at school. In addition, the overly aggressive images of the school environment and negative depictions of teachers also caused the film to encounter controversy.
The Battle for Survival has too many violent episodes
After a week of postponement, Survival War will continue to air every Friday and Saturday night on SBS.
