Dude. How long have I been away from the Kdrama scene? I know I took a mini-break to visit my friends in Vermont (hence all the Top 5 lists of late) but seriousy, I feel like I can’t leave you guys alone for a minute! Last I hear, the wunder-PD Na not only had cast his new nothing plot of a drama, 3 Meals A Day, Fishing Village with Cha Seung Won, Jang Geun Suk, and….some other guy. All is good right?
Fast forward one mini-break and Jang Geun Suk is not only embroiled in some tax evasion scandal but has removed himself from the show and he’s being edited out of what’s been already taped. Come on!
I was really almost looking forward to this show! I feel like Jang Geun Suk would have been adorable here and could have been what pulled his relationship out of it’s downward slump. Not to mention he was wearing a super cute knitted hat in the promos.
Word on the Kdrama street is that they’ve just found a replacement amateur fisherman in former Youths over Flowers cast member Sohn Jo Joon. I know people really liked him in that–and the drama Answer Me 1994–but it does naught to remove my poutyface.
What a bummer about Jang Geun Suk, especially since the scandal does seem to stem from an accounting error and no big evil on his part. Not to mention the fact that the promptly paid the error and the fines as soon as the error was discovered. I don’t want to be all judgy, but it seems a little sad and silly that they would go so far as to remove him from something already filmed over a simple mistake. Pssst…due to an accounting error it turned out I underpaid in taxes last year. Do you think I should have my blog stripped for the $44 I owed?
I’m gonna go with no.
This is going to definitely put a ding in my admiration for PD Na and the series. And it has taught me that I’m not allowed to go away anymore, things just go crazy when I do.
