In April 2015, the series received scrutiny from the Korea Communications Standards Commission for a revenge storyline that the review board deemed had too many "violent" and "unethical" scenes. Soon after, MBC released a statement that the network would no longer work with screenwriter Im Sung-han in future projects; Im responded by announcing her retirement.
