After being under fire for taking a picture (without masks) of the cast and crew of True Beauty, the tvN drama has finally released a statement of apology for the picture that gained controversy online. If you missed it, as reported by AllKPop, ASTRO member Cha Eun Woo took to Instagram and shared photos of the cast and crew together following the wrap of the filming. The post saw the huge group standing extremely close with their masks either no masks or pulled down. 


The now-deleted post also featured the leading trio blowing the candles off the cake and the stars posing against a picturesque location. As reported by Zapzee, Cha Eun Woo shared the post with the caption reading, "True Beauty staff, actors, and production staff, thank you all so much for your hard work. Thank you to all those who supported True Beauty and Su Ho.”


As soon as the photo was posted, people began to criticize the crew for taking the photo without their masks on, and even for gathering so many people in such a small space at a time when masking and social distancing guidelines are part of the protocol for COVID-19 prevention in South Korea.


Now, the production staff via Soompi, apologised and said: “We apologize for causing many people concern due to the staff group photo taken after the end of filming. During the filming of True Beauty, we strictly followed the rules on preventing infection transmission and were able to finish filming safely. However, we ended up causing people concern with the photo taken to commemorate the end of filming where we temporarily took off our masks. We will do our best to create a safe set in which there is not a single moment in which we are careless about the rules.”
