A Little Hiccup in the Original Plan
Originally, ‘Double Patty’ was expected to premiere in theaters by the end of 2020. However, due to Irene’s most recent controversy involving a photoshoot editor’s SNS post, the film is now considering a potential postponement until later in 2021.
On October 21, 2020, Irene came under fire for allegedly mistreating and lashing out at a fashion editor on set during a photoshoot (according to a now-deleted Instagram post of that fashion editor). Irene took to the social media platform to post an official statement, admitting her wrongdoings, and apologizing for her behavior. SM Entertainment also subsequently released an apology for the hurtful words and behavior.
However, a representative of ‘Double Patty’s production company denied that the film’s postponement was directly related to Irene’s recent controversy. The rep stated, “We have been discussing delaying the film’s premiere since last week, due to the current situation of movie theaters in the wake of COVID19.”
Nevertheless, fans are excited to see Irene as the lead in the movie and are eagerly waiting for more news regarding the film.
