This was always going to be an ambitious drama production, with many CGII elements needed and a dark tone that would needed to be balanced for the majority K-drama viewing populace. That it’s initial leading lady pick had to bow out due to her poor real life behavior scandal was enough to delay everything. Now it’s back on track and tvN drama Island is slated to start filming soon for a 2022 airing. Male lead Kim Nam Gil will be paired with Lee Da Hae, and joining the leads are Cha Eun Woo as a fellow good character with Sung Joon making a splashy return after military service and hiatus to play the Big Bad. I’m plenty psyched and also think all four central leads have much to gain from stretching their performance skills in this big budget production.
