[News] Jiro Wang stars in Absolute Darling
Wu Chun suddenly dropped out of GTV’s Absolute Darling, Jiro Wang was invited to replace his role. GTV Deputy General Manager Mr. Lai said that Jiro accepted the offer with “gratitude at heart”, subtly criticizing Wu Chun for dropping out irresponsibly.
Last September, Wu Chun & Ku Hye Sun attended the press conference of Absolute Darling. However, Wu Chun dropped out of the drama with the reason that he was no longer suitable for menga adaptation, and he thinks the script & the role of a robot don’t fit him. He wants to focus on movies in the second half of this year.
Absolute Darling has started filming days ago, Mr. Lai praised Ky Hye Sun for being supportive. “it states in the contract that she has the right to drop out if there’s change of male lead”. He also acclaimed Jiro that he “has a heart of gratitude”. In regards to the issue about breach of contract for Wu Chun’s drop-out, Mr. Lai said, “that will be handled by management agency”, and when asked if they would work with Wu Chun in future, he said, “that will be handled by production company”
Jiro helped out for the cast, he attended a media luncheon with Ku Hye Sun yesterday. He was asked if he’s worried that people would make comparison between him & Wu Chun. He avoid answering the question by reinforcing that “basicallyI think the script is very good”. When he was asked repeatedly, he pretended to have forgotten and said, “what was that? What did you ask?”. And he said at last, “there’s no need to compare as he has not started the drama yet”. Obviouly he doesn’t want to be compared, but to prevent any misunderstanding, he added, “We are good friends, thus we are not bothered by this issue”
Ku Hye Sun was also involved in the secret marriage of Seo Tai Ji & Lee Ji Ah, she explained, “I have not even met STJ. It may be because our boss knows him, thus creating some misunderstanding. This kind of news is nonsensical.”
