Kim Myung-min replaces Kwon Sang-woo
When Kwon Sang-woo dropped out of the film My Love By My Side at the last minute, he gave no explanation and left the production in a lurch at crunch time. The role sounded meaty — his character suffers from Lou Gehrig’s disease, a degenerative condition, and grows progressively debilitated while retaining a humorous mentality. It also stars opposite Ha Ji-won (Hwang Jini).
But the production has rebounded, and better than ever, because Kim Myung-min, the powerhouse actor from Beethoven Virus and White Tower, is now taking the role.
A big step up, in my opinion! And I don’t mean that as a knock at Kwon Sang-woo; Kim Myung-min is just that good.
