Kwon Sang-woo drops film, pisses off production

Newly wedded Kwon Sang-woo (Fate, Bad Love) has dropped out at the last minute of what would have been his next film project, My Love By My Side, and criticism is building.

Apparently Kwon had made every commitment to appear in the project save for putting his seal on the contract (which often doesn’t happen until the last minute).The film, which was set to begin filming next month, now struggles in the wake of this unforeseen hurdle. The production company said that they received word suddenly over the weekend, after the terms of the contract, fees, and other details had been worked out: “He didn’t even explain his reasons for quitting. We’re all bewildered.”

Kwon Sang-woo was to have played a sufferer of Lou Gehrig’s disease, also known as ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a degenerative illness), and had been cast opposite Ha Ji-won, who is still cast in the film. He held a fanmeeting in Japan just yesterday, on the 25th, where he announced, “Contrary to reports, my next project will be a drama series.”

The production is currently looking for a new lead actor.

Hm, what happened, Kwon? Did marriage make you suddenly forget your manners?

you know..i honestly wouldn't mind kang jihwan or kang dongwon with ha jiwon (in a movie where they actually talk to each other).

or maybe son taeyoung's pregnant and the filming is right when the baby is due and he wanted to be there for her but didn't want anyone to know...who knows...it's his problem.

badly done, KSW! he should at least give some sort of reason! How can he do this to movie producers and directors a month before filming? I hope film producers will get actors to sign their contracts earlier from now on.

maybe he got cold feet? it's almost a surefire hit with a director who makes tearjerker hits, and an equally famous costar he's already comfy with. the only non-private biggie is the role challenging him to go against the great body he's got.

this sure is bad for the industry in a bad slump. now who'd be a good choice taking over? someone on the thin side and quick study with script...

im resisting the urge to really mock KSW. ( sorry fans)
i like his previous stuff and all, but his recent slew of mishaps when it came to dramas... and yes this one.. well.. hm.. but this seems unproffesional to me.

i wonder what happenned. HJW and KSW are pretty good friends too.
im thinking that a) his "wife" stopped him, has issues or such b) he did wanna ruin his good looking image for good acting and good role c) he is just being a prick with his star status. d) the money issue again and such/ percentages ( a speculation on the KSW thread)

good luck to his drama then. but reall y id be kinda pissed too.
but i hope kang dong won would get this role. i think kang ji hwan is busy filiming his other movie right now. im thinking who else would fit this.. hmm..

So KSW hurry up and get a good movie and series. YoUR buddy in EOE is hot right now...

he must have a good reason for dropping out.
he won’t be doing that if he didn’t have one.
i’m sure it was a hard decision to make.
i still wish him the best.
and i still look forward to his future projects.
there’s tough competition going on,
Song Seung Hun’s East of Eden is on top of the
rating now, and So Ji Sub is coming up with a
promising project too. They’re all friends and
i’m sure they support each other.
Accusing the wifey is too childish, that's way too low.
Leave the wife alone.

By the way, SSH, SJS and KSW are all my favorites.
I’m glad they all doing really good now.
I’m so happy seeing them often on TV and Movies too.

good luck to KSW.
maybe the supposedly cancelled SBS big budgetted production DAE MOL(is the title right) will be made anyhow. SSH is getting more popular these days for EOE and we do not know yet how SJS's series will fare unless it is aired already. his series BAD LOVE which was intrumental in meeting his wife, was a certified flop. maybe KSW wants to do a TV series as it has bigger market than movies, to keep his fame in Asia...remember he was the #2 Asian Star in Japan.

I'm more concerned about who's going to replace him. Lol.

I can easily picture Kang Ji Hwan doing it for the role seems fit for his calibre.

This is funny. I love all KSW's movies, he's an excellent actor. I'm sure all his fans are disappointed along with the producers and all. Even I was disappointed. Since he left without a reason I'm sure it's because he doesn't want anyone to know or the word spreading. We all know how dramatic it's going to get.
Being the good loyal fans we are, we'll sure give him his space and privacy without explainations. His privacy life isn't our business anyhow. We'll just have to encourage him that we're here to support his acting career.

I THINK KWS HAS A BIG REASON FOR TURNING DOWN THE BIG PROJECT. MAYBE LATER HE WILL EXPLAINED IT TO THE PUBLIC. BUT I THINK HES REALLY HANDSOME AND VERY GOOD ACTOR.LETS WAIT FOR HER EXPLANATION FOR THAT. FOR THE MEANTIME LET HER ENJOY THEIR MARRIED LIFE NOW.
