Upcoming SBS weekend drama The Time I Loved You, 7000 Days just started filming this past weekend, not as late as some dramas have had to play catch up but quite late taking into account how early this drama finished casting and securing the PD and screenwriter. The big hitch (and it was BIG) was PD Jo Soo Won abruptly leaving the production only to be coaxed to return a week later, which was then followed by the announcement that the drama was switching screenwriters. Le sigh. The screenwriter of Full House was replaced with a duo writing tandem of screenwriters, one did Sly and Single Again and the other did Baby-faced Beauty.
The delay in commencement of filming didn’t just stem from all the personnel shuffling but also that the original script was junked and the two new screenwriters apparently started from scratch in writing the drama. No wonder only the first script is seen above, there likely isn’t more than that at this point. The drama doesn’t premiere until June 27th but time is ticking so hopefully everything is in order now. Check out the first BTS shots of the two leads Ha Ji Won and Lee Jin Wook filming, and be prepared to rewind twenty years and believe they are high school students. The age gap might be as bad as Bae Yong Joon and Choi Ji Woo in Winter Sonata as high school students.
