JTBC Drama ‘Fantastic’ to Revise Script in light of Ji-soo’s Medical Condition

Following reports of Ji-soo’s recent emergency surgery, the production team of his current drama Fantastic has announced that they will not replace the actor, but will be adjusting the story to consider his recovery. Ji-soo is part of the drama’s main cast as Kim Sang-wook, a young lawyer who will have a noona romance with Park Shi-yeon’s character.

Hold up. Ji-soo had what?

Last September 12, Ji-soo was rushed to the hospital for severe leg pain and high fever, and underwent emergency surgery for acute osteomyelitis (inflammation of the bone or bone marrow). It was later revealed that the rising actor has been suffering from leg pain for some time, and prior check ups had them initially suspect it to be bone cancer.

‘My Sassy Girl’ Drama Remake to Replace Current “Sassy Girl”

Well, this is a shocker. A few days ago, news broke that rookie actress Kim Joo-hyun (Modern Farmer) has stepped down from the titular role in My Sassy Girl. According to reports, she is troubled by the amount of public attention she’s been getting because of the role, and by the pressure of starring in such a big project. In light of this development, it is said that the production is now offering the lead role to Oh Yeon-seo.

My Sassy Girl is an upcoming SBS sageuk based on the classic hit movie of the same title (let’s not talk about its sequel), about a beautiful but troublesome princess in the Joseon dynasty. Joo Won (Yong-pal) has long been confirmed as the show’s leading man (his last project before military enlistment), but it seems he’s going to wait a little while longer before he’s finally joined by his sassy girl.

Lee Je-hoon, Shin Min-a Offered Lead Roles in ‘Tomorrow With You’

Can they just confirm already and start filming??? I’m already sold without looking at the premise!

My Two Cents on the Undeserved Cutdown of ‘Beautiful Mind’

It’s shocking and very upsetting indeed for the fans of Beautiful Mind, as KBS suddenly decides to pull the plug and cut it down by 2 episodes, bringing it now to only a total of 14 episodes. And just when it was getting better and better!

Not long after hearing about the news of the looming reduction, follow-up reports have surfaced to confirm that the decision has been finalized – with Jang Hyuk and a few KBS reps in-the-know beforehand. KBS points to conflict with the upcoming Summer Olympics as the reason behind the move, but I’m pretty sure they wouldn’t even dare touch its schedule if the drama performed well in terms of ratings. At the end of the day, ratings means revenue, and revenue means everything for a network, it seems.
