[11.04.07] Eric’s “Poseidon” in crisis – drama may be aborted

It’s such a pity… and the disappointment he must be feeling 😦

But it may well turn out into a blessing in disguise if this drama or another drama he moves on to turns out to be a megahit – but I’ll watch anything that he takes on anyway… 🙂 Let’s just hope for the best now! 오빠 화이팅!!!

===========================================

The drama “Poseidon”, which initially attracted attention as Eric’s comeback project, is now on the verge of being aborted.

“Poseidon”, a drama based on the special ops team of the coast guard, had attracted much attention for its cast of Eric, Kim Kang Woo, Kim Ok Bin, U-Know Yunho and Jeon Hye Bin. Although principal filming started at the end of last year, filming was halted by the Yeonpyeong-do incident and bad weather. Although there were discussions with SBS to arrange for the drama to be broadcast in May, talks eventually fell through and the drama found its future left in the balance.

After this, there were talks of the main cast either dropping the drama or debating to drop the drama. Although Eric and the other cast members have completed filming for 20% of the first episode by the end of last year, the production company have announced that Kim Kang Woo and Kim Ok Bin have decided to drop the project. The other cast members are also in discussions to drop out.

A rep from Eric’s management company told Nocut News on the 6th, “Filming was supposed to have resumed in March but was delayed again. Right now we’re in a frustrating situation where we don’t know when filming will resume or when the drama will be scheduled for broadcast. We’ll have to wait for further advice from the production company.”

Although U-Know Yunho’s management has also expressed that he has yet to drop out of the project, but likewise he won’t be able to keep on waiting.

In response to this, a rep from the production company said, “It’s true that filming was to have resumed in March but was delayed. We’ll be organizing the schedules in April and discuss the filming schedules and broadcast date again. Right now the project has not been aborted. We’re also casting replacements for the actors who have dropped out. We’re also reorganizing the script.”

“Poseidon” was supposed to have taken over the Mon-Tue slot vacated by “Midas” in May, but was dropped in favor of “Sweet Scandal”. Since then the production company has been in talks with MBC but has not been able to secure a broadcast date.

  1. aww, what a shame. I was really looking forward to this drama. I’m confident though that a better project will come along for uri Eric 🙂

  2. Awww, this is too bad. =(. But Phi is right, as much as we want to see this drama. It is better that they terminate the project sooner, so Eric can look for other dramas or film’s project.

  3. I was suspecting of the bad news ever since the supposedly resuming March filming schedule came and gone.

    Frankly I’m tired of waiting, let alone the cast & crew so as much as I like what I saw in Poseidon teaser, I’m ready to let go.

    I’m actually glad this is just might hat extra push for the production to REALLY decide what to do with this drama once and for all rather than just buying time.

    Eric ah, whichever your next projects are, you got my full support and I will sure be watching.
    Hwaiting!!!!

    1. that extra push… not hat extra push XD

      Glad knowing Poseidon will finally come to the conclusion (whatever the outcome is). Hate seeing the cast wasting their time waiting….

  4. This is such a pity! I was waiting for it ;_____; Eric’s dramas are the best~

    I’ll support him in his future projects!!

    Thanks for sharing, SuMi~♥
