I’m glad to see that rising actor Kim Young Dae has a good agency behind him to support his decision to leave the soon to start filming KBS K-drama School 2021. It happened earlier this week and the production company claimed that Kim Young Dae’s departure was unexpected and left them in a lurch to find a second male lead replacement. Kim Young Dae’s side has since then revealed all shitshow behind the scenes and it’s no surprise he called it quits. He reportedly signed on when the filming dates were given to him that allowed him to do his other projects and both sides agreed. But there were repeated delays to the point that he had to decline a project and he did so. Then the original production agency was switched to a new production agency and in the meantime Kim Young Dae still hadn’t been paid his signing deposit payment. To date the drama had been delayed one year and three months before he finally left. Kim Young Dae quit the drama in the end of June and told the production company who suddenly announced after filming was going to start on July 15th. So he told him he was leaving before the drama started filming but the production team tried to smear him as creating problems for the drama which was filming. Kim Young Dae’s side said he lost trust in the production and had no choice but to leave. Good for him, honestly this one should be shelved and in a few years when KBS gets its act together it can put together another School installment.
I know this is a little bit unrelated, but I just saw something about KBS lately, they removed Sunggyu from one of their shows just because he’s been missing out a lot of episode and his reason is actually valid because he need to rest after being covid-19 positive, it’s understandable though, yet they did that to him and they even wanted him to be a guest instead, like wtf? and then this one Young Dae also suffered a lot of hate because of this issue, without knowing it was not his fault.
The production of this drama is shady. They changed name but it still the same CEO… I’m pretty sure they don’t have the money to make this drama and they stil push it.
The leads are young and new, so I hope they won’t use this to not pay them.
ok now it makes sense why he turned down a seo hyun jin project
Good decision.even though he’s not a good actor yet but he’s going to be fine as this industry is so shallow
Good that he got out.
