Park Sung Hoon Out and Kim Kyung Nam in as Male Lead of Upcoming jTBC Drama Just One Person

I would call this an even trade and I’m just glad the casting got switched up early and finalized quickly. Upcoming jTBC drama Just One Person is replacing one person for another person this week. Male lead Park Sung Hoon, who signed up for this drama three months ago after the Joseon Exorcist cancellation fiasco, has stepped down reportedly due to scheduling conflicts. Right after the news came out there was reports that Kim Kyung Nam has accepted as the male lead. The drama is about a prickly woman who gets a terminal illness diagnosis and decides to take one just one person before she goes, and she gets involved in a murder investigation with the male lead police detective and the two end finding each other as their most important person in life. Rising actress Ahn Eun Jin plays the female lead with Joy of Red Velvet as the second female lead, and the drama is from the writer of Matrimonial Chaos with the PD of Find Me in Your Memory and Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo at the helm. The drama is slated to air in December 2021.
