When making a Korean drama, usually the production will cast a number of actors. Although, the actors who passed the casting have been confirmed to star in the drama, but not infrequently the actor decides to withdraw from the drama he will be starring in.
The reasons also vary from being involved in cases to problems with the characters to be played. Let’s take a look at the list of actors who have withdrawn from the dramas they starred in:
1. Kim Sae Ron
This 20-year-old actress has resigned from the drama Dear. M, starring NCT’s Jaehyun. There were rumors that the reason for Kim Sae Ron’s withdrawal from the drama was that there was a problem with the credit arrangement before it was processed.
The credit order of the cast has become a sensitive issue in the South Korean entertainment industry. Usually, the names of the artists are sorted by the part they got in the drama or film as well as the year of debut in the industry. However, Sae Ron’s agency denied these rumors and said there was no conflict between the actress and the cast and drama Dear. M.
2. APRIL’s Naeun
Before being played by Pyo Ye Jin, the character Go Eun in the drama series Taxi Driver will actually be played by APRIL’s Naeun. However, Naeun stumbled upon a bullying case against former APRIL member, Hyunjoo.
Finally, the drama production side announced that member Naeun resigned and the decision was the result of discussions between them and the idol agency. The shooting process that had been running 60 percent had to be repeated by replacing it with Pyo Ye Jin.
3. Seo Yea Ji
After a long time, finally Seo Yea Ji’s agency, Gold Medalist, confirmed that the actress had withdrawn from starring in the drama Island. Seo Yea Ji resigned due to various controversies involving her, ranging from her possessiveness to her ex-lover, Kim Jung Hyun, to her harsh treatment of staff.

4. Park Sung Hoon
The actor who has acted in the drama Psychopath Diary has also resigned from the Only One Person drama, which will also star Red Velvet’s Joy. Rumors also surfaced that the reason for the actor’s resignation was due to schedule issues.

6. Kim Young Dae
