"Nice Guy" is now dealing with another issue regarding Song Joong-ki's name.

KBS drama "Nice Guy" is suffering from the word in the title that ridicules the Korean language.

""Nice Guy" is an ironical expression of "Bad Guy" and the spelling was intended to be spelt like that" claimed the production. When the issue was about to die down, Song Joong-ki's name and the production sponsor has been the matter of issue once again. Chicken brand 'Chicken Maru' claimed that it took part in this sponsorship thinking the young imagery of the product suited well with the drama. Many are claiming that the name Kang Maru (Song Joong-ki) in the drama was being used as indirect advertisement.

Netizens say, "I am curious to see how much chicken he'll eat in every episode", "This is in the face", "It was their greatest error in calling him Maru" and more.

"Nice Guy" is about a man who is betrayed by the one he loves and uses another woman who lost her memory to take revenge. To be aired on the 12th at 9:55PM.
