An upcoming tvN drama is now looking for a new leading actress after the last one stepped down for poor acting skills.
In April 2021, the broadcasting station tvN announced cast for their new drama ‘Return’, written by the famous screenwriter duo Hong Sisters, who are also behind popular projects like ‘Hotel de Luna’, ‘Master’s Sun’, ‘A Korean Odyssey’, and ‘My Girlfriend Is A Gumiho’.
The drama will also be produced by Park Jun Hwa PD, who was in charge of mega hits like Park Seo Joon and Park Min Young’s ‘What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim’.
According to the aforementioned announcement, the new series will star Lee Jae Wook, who started to gain fame after his role as Baek Kyung in ‘Extraordinary You‘, as well as super rookie actress ‘Park Hye Eun’, who starred in ‘The School Nurse Files’.
But recently, the production for ‘Return’ had been halted. The reason? They claimed that Park Hye Eun, the lead actress, had stepped down due to poor acting skills.
Poor acting skills is quite the odd reason for replacing an actress, if not never seen before.
In reaction to the news, netizens was outraged.
They believe that criticizing her poor acting skills publicly is a low move, and the station should have used other reasons. Some also cited that she was great in ‘The School Nurse Files’, and the statement was way too harsh on the rookie actress.
A netizen even called for boycotting the series, claiming that they can’t support such a disrespectful crew.
