The broadcast for Suzy and Lee Seung Gi‘s upcoming drama Vagabond has reportedly been delayed until this fall.
The SBS drama Vagabond, which was set to air in May has been postponed until September.
The Insider who revealed the information added that the decision was made during discussions with Netflix.
The decision was made while they were discussing the launch with Netflix and they have looked into other time slots. It unexpectedly became a 1-year project.
Vagabond began their script reading last June and is still in the process of filming. While the goal was to complete filming by last year, with the continuous delays, it is expected to be complete by May. In order to release the drama on Netflix at the same time, a period of time for reviewing the content is necessary after the completion of the filming. As a result, it has become impossible to release the drama in May.
Because Vagabond was the next broadcast in line scheduled after the drama Big Issue, the new drama Absolute Boyfriend, which had already completed filming, will be taking its place followed by Secret Boutique and then Vagabond.
Meanwhile, Vagabond has raised anticipation thanks to its star-studded lineup and high-profile budget of 24 billion KRW ($23,328,750 USD). It is a spy and action thriller with numerous twists that also incorporates melodrama and comedy aspects.
