Well, probably no real problem for the American works, but if the reports end up being believable it could mean a lethal blow for Dahlia in Bloom, the public would not support it and likely would complain loudly if it is aired.

Conceding that the studies were not aware that would still means that the people responsible for subcontracting the work should be identified and something done. Seeing how the industry in general is obviously sacrificing quality for cheap labor I would not be surprised if many more examples are found in the near future.

The public will forget or not care in a few weeks. People still bank with some that have shrewed over many and buy gas from the companies that caused gulf disaster and the Alaskan disaster

Not likely, specially in a medium so competitive and saturated, even minor things end up causing series to last much shorter than predicted, a studio that is perceived as negligent and supporting North Korea can be subjected to organized protests so not all companies will take the risk of airing it, specially for just another "isekai" clone from a small studio and cheap production.

There is hope for the series only as long as the news of the NK involvement do not spread too much, but if regular people begin to talk about it it is difficult that it will survive.
