Actor Na In Woo will reportedly replace Ji Soo for the role of On Dal in KBS2‘s drama, River Where the Moon Rises. The news followed after Ji Soo was accused by multiple former classmates of being a bully back in school.
According to an exclusive report from Osen, Na In Woo will replace Ji Soo as On Dal in River Where the Moon Rises after completing his role in the tvN drama, Mr. Queen.
KBS has been holding meetings to determine whether Ji Soo would stay on with the drama following his bullying accusations, and reports stated that KBS decided to have Ji Soo drop out from the drama. However, over 95% of the drama has already been filmed, creating logistics issues as the production team still has yet to decide whether keep Ji Soo’s parts or to refilm them.
KBS still has plans to officially announce the future of the drama later today. The production company for River Where the Moon Rises stated that nothing has been decided as of yet.
KBS announced that they will be refilming from episode 9 while editing out Ji Soo as much as possible for episodes 7 and 8.
