- Drama tagline : Fantasy and history will meet. Person and person will meet. Person and heaven will meet.
- Faith is being accused of plagiarism by Lee Kim Production (the company who made Dr. Jin). They cited that Faith contain a storyline about a modem doctor traveling to the past which is very similar to Dr. Jin’s.
- Couple weeks before the drama debut, the production team changed the meaning of the hanja (Chinese character) of the drama’s title .
But, the Korean title (Faith) hasn’t change.
The hanja is changed from ?? (miracle doctor) to ?? (loyalty).
Faith’s initial story was about modern doctor travels to the Goryeo era and the story was heavily talking about medicine .
But, after writer Song Ji Na joined the team to re-write the script, she changed the meaning to ‘loyalty’ and the story will be shifted to the action of the main character , warrior General Choi Young.
The advantage of the new hanja is giving Faith a more freedom to the plagiarism accusation by Dr. Jin’s production company.
