Not yet aired, this film has been accused of plagiarizing “Mr. Queen” due to an obvious detail.

Specifically, the new poster of The Lady in Butcher’s House has a layout divided into two parts: one side is the female lead Baby Zhang performing a martial arts posture, the other side is the male lead, Tong Meng Shi. Netizens believe that this poster has the layout, costumes, and poses of the character almost identical to the poster of “Mr. Queen”.

Currently, the audience, who are looking forward to the drama, is extremely disappointed. Previously, many Weibo posts listed “Mr. Queen” was on the list of “plagiarized dramas” due to suspicions that it stole the idea of “Go Princess Go”, but then there was news that “Mr. Queen” is originally a remake of “Go Princess Go”.

Netizens’ comments:

  • I have been waiting for this drama for a long time. Feeling really disappointed.
  • They certainly couldn’t come up with an explanation. The truth is clearly seen
  • It immediately reminds me of Mr. Queen.
