SBS Drama Delayed Justice Loses Male Lead Bae Sung Woo to Drunk Driving, Adds Massive Guest Stars Jung Woo Sung, Lee Jung Jae, Lee Elijah, and Lee Jong Hyuk

The SBS Fri-Sat drama Delayed Justice is having a delayed resurgence thanks to turning lemons into lemonade. The drama fired male lead Bae Sung Woo after his drunk driving arrest and had to find another top male actor willing to step in for the 4 remaining episodes. Initially it was Lee Jung Jae but his schedule didn’t work out so instead Jung Woo Sung is taking over the role of the cop. Now we hear Lee Jung Jae will be making a cameo appearance as the same character he played in the K-drama Aide, and also Lee Elijah will also play her Aide character in a cameo. Not done yet with the star power, Lee Jong Hyuk will also be joining the drama in a special role for the final 2 episodes. So there you have it, now I have reason to check it out.

    • Not too bad.

      I was watching it casually every week until it went on hiatus, which is when I forgot about it too, haha.

      Not a smash hit, but it is enjoyable enough to pass time. It’s not so bad that you’d bore yourself out of your mind either.

      Apparently it’s based on a true story.

  1. Seeing JWS and LJJ deciding to appear in meh drama like this in both writing, talk and ratings, I just wonder if they usually don’t get much offers to be in dramas actually…

    • Bae Sung-woo is under Artist Company, which is owned by Jung Woo-sung and Lee Jung-jae. So they are bailing out Bae Sung-woo and probably to help Kwong Sang-woo and their own company save face. It is basically like the scene of Forrest Gump where the mother slept with the teacher, so that Forrest Gump could get the finest education in the country. They sacrificed themselves for their “child”.

  2. Lee Elijah really went a long way from her *ugh* “Basketball” days (which, like “Delayed Justice,” was also under Kwak PD, so he’s practically reaping the fruits of other directors).
