As we have seen a lot of memes, social media posts regarding this character who is basically a Pakistani migrant living in South Korea with his wife and a child, working in a production factory. He is seen speaking the Urdu language with his wife and family a couple of times.

The Indian Actor Aumpun Tripathi is playing the character Of Abdul Ali. And this is the reason the show also has received criticism from Pakistan. It is believed that an actor of Pakistan origin could portray a better Pakistani character than anyone else. As we can see that his Urdu dialogues are not well written, or even well translated. Looks like they wrote the dialogues in Korean and then translated them from Google Translator. It is regardless derogatory casting a person having origin from any other country for a Pakistani character.
