Previously, “Anna” received negative reactions from the Chinese audience regarding a scene in the second episode. The scene where Yoo Mi (Suzy) tries to sell a luxury watch that turns out to be a replica made in China received a strong response on Weibo.

In particular, Chinese netizens did not accept the portrayal of their country producing counterfeit goods. For information, the scene refers to a real incident where a company was caught selling Chinese replicas of celebrities and chaebols by pretending they were real.
