Drama ‘Poseidon”s Production is Delayed Actors are About to Lay Off Their Roles
Drama ‘Poseidon’ is on the verge of being canceled. ‘Poseidon’, a drama whose story is dedicated to special rescue team in marine police that includes casts such as Eric Moon, Kim Kang Woo, Kim Ok Bin, U-Know Yunho (TVXQ), and Jun Hyebin–was gathering a round of attention earlier for its luxury casts.
The drama had started to film late last year in December, however due to weather problem and Yeonpyeong-do island attack incident, the filming was put in a halt. SBS is in midst of discussion of the drama’s possible airing in the middle of May yet the unstable condition of broadcast schedule during that period gives even more problem to the drama’s production.
Making even worse, during the production discussion, most of ‘Poseidon”s lead actors were said to lay off their casts in the drama. During the end of last year, Eric and the other lead actors had filmed for 1 week that captured about 20% of the drama’s storyline, but Kim Kang Woo and Kim Ok Bin had announced their exit from the production.
Eric’s official revealed on the 6th, “The filming that was scheduled to resume in March had been delayed again, thus leads to a frustrating condition. We don’t know what is happening now neither when we’re going to continue the filming. For now we’ll be waiting for the production notification first.”
U-Know Yunho official from his agency also said, “We haven’t made any decision to get out from the production.”
Meanwhile Poseidon drama official confirmed, “We’ve delayed to resume filming in March it’s true. Currently we’re in the middle of organizing shooting schedule in April and also schedule to retake some filming scenes. The drama is not yet collapsed now. We’re also in negotiation to cast new actors and re-organize the drama’s scripts.”
‘Poseidon’ was priorly scheduled to air in May as the successor of current broadcast drama ‘Midas’.
