In the span of 2 days the scandal broke, the apology given, and now the fallout path forward decided. I’m glad fans and viewers don’t have to question “did he?” and can now wish the victims of actor Ji Soo‘s pervasive bullying and assault during his school days can get closure and move forward. I believe Ji Soo’s career is over in entertainment, whether he will face legal repercussions is unclear but unlikely since it was doing his juvenile days. His downfall would have been only his to bear but for the fact that he’s currently the male lead in KBS Mon-Tues sageuk River Where the Moon Rises. The production team has cancelled filming for March 4th and 5th which was scheduled to discuss what to do and made the decision to replace Ji Soo with another actor. The drama unfortunately is 90% done with filming, through episode 18 with only 2 more episodes left. I don’t think audiences will tune in if Ji Soo is replaced only for those final 2 episodes and to replace him earlier will likely need quick re-shoots and pre-empting upcoming episodes for the drama to merge the new scenes earlier on. I’m glad the decision is made, I feel terrible for the entire cast and crew, and I think all these bullying accusations need to continue to be taken seriously, investigated, and truth revealed whatever the consequences.
