There will be a special press conference later today at 2PM(KST) – all final decisions should be officially announced then.
KBS2 drama “Spy Myungwol” may continue without a female lead.
The drama, which has been halted with the disappearance of lead actress Han Ye Seul, may continue without a female lead instead of getting a replacement. A member from the production team said on the 16th, “We may carry on with the broadcast without a female lead. There are plans to have Han Ye Seul’s character killed off with her final death scene at the end of Episode 10 and carry on with the rest of the drama.” On the night of the 15th, the producer had instructed several cast members to stay on standby as there is a lot more footage required than expected.
Episode 10, aired last week, showed Myungwol (played by Han Ye Seul) acting out a death scene in the fictional movie “Shiri 2”. Another crew member added, “The original storyline was to have Han Ye Seul’s character rise to stardom after her successful role. But with Han Ye Seul leaving the production, it won’t actually be easy to find a replacement actress and we hope for the viewers’ understanding to kill off the character and carry on.”
