Actress Kim Min-hee's topless poster has been denied.

There have been other cases where posters like these have been denied. One it has been refused, the production has to go through the process of editing the poster and getting it re-examined by the KMRB.
The posters for Jo Yeo-jeong and Lee Joo-hyeok's "The Servant" and Choi Kang-hee's "Petty Romance" were also denied once. "Petty Romance" had a unique case where it was denied 3 times although it wasn't a movie with many erotic scenes.
