“The War of Money” is about a loan shark-turned-stock analyst taking revenge against another loan shark who caused his father to commit suicide. Heo, who used to be a stock analyst himself, said that he wrote his book in 2003 and accuses the TV drama of having an almost identical storyline. Meanwhile, “The Woman of My Man,” is about a man who has an extramarital affair with his wife’s best friend. Ryu said that it is very similar to her work, “That Woman, Ok-hui.”
Kim Su-hyun (pictured above), star TV writer of “The Woman of My Man,” said, “I am so mortified that I just cannot do anything.” The producers of “The War of Money” said that Heo is trying to attract attention for his novel by making the false charges. By Phillip Lee
