24 Aug – The new Yu Zheng palace drama, "Love Story of Court Enemies" recently blamed editors for their mistake after the series was accused of stealing a scene from the 2018 period series, "Ruyi's Royal Love in the Palace".
As reported on HK01, the issue sparked recently when episode nine of the Yu Zheng drama showed a royal mourning scene, in which the officials dressed in white bowed in front of the Palace of the Heavenly Purity to grieve the death of the emperor.
Eagle-eyed netizens immediately noticed that the said scene was an exact copy of the previous Zhou Xun-starrer, with its only difference being the wider shot used in the latter series.
In response to the allegation, the studio issued a public apology on social media, saying that their editors had "accidentally" added a scene from the previous drama into the show and that the company had not noticed it prior to airing.
In addition, the company also apologised to their investors, and the producers of the previous series.
