It would have been great to get the main cast back, well at least those who aren’t gone or cancelled. K-movie Pirates 2 was the long planned sequel to the box office hit Pirates starring Son Ye Jin, Kim Nam Gil, and Yoo Hae Jin. Initially the leads were planned to return for the sequel but after many years the movie is finally starting filming in July of 2020 but none of the leads will return. The new leads are now Kwon Sang Woo, Kang Ha Neul, and Kwang Soo. Son Ye Jin and Kim Nam Gil are having career highs last year with Crash Landing on You and The Fiery Priest so it would have been very buzzy to have them back but other original cast members like Sulli who passed and Oh Dal Soo got blacklisted because of the Me Too movement so perhaps a brand new start is a better option.
