I feel so bad for the entire cast and crew of About Time, even moreso now that it’s clear that removed second male lead Lee Seo Won could have alleviated the situation if his situation was made known when it happened in early April. Lee Seo Won has been charged with sexual harassment and threatening assault with a weapon for an incident on April 6th involving a female celebrity victim. The news only broke this week after the prosecutor charged him but for the last six weeks the police investigation was not made public.
The news led to his removal from K-drama About Time and from hosting Music Bank, but for About Time the drama is premiering this coming Monday and the production has reportedly shot 12 episodes worth of footage. Lee Seo Won was playing the second male lead so clearly he would be in many scenes, so the reshoots with the role being taken over by ZEA‘s Kim Dong Joon would require substantial time and cost to the entire production. I hope no one collapses from exhaustion to get reshot scenes ready for airing starting next week, reportedly a staffer on the drama posted that he wanted to commit suicide at the thought of having to do all the reshoots. Be safe About Time team! Continue reading
