Sunwoo Sun quits Crime Squad
Sunwoo Sun has announced that she’s dropping out of KBS’ current Monday-Tuesday cop procedural Crime Squad, reportedly due to some problems between the producers and her agency. Okay, I don’t want to be all lemons-out-of-lemonade about this if she’s being ousted for a bad reason, but I’m actually glad she’s being written out. I don’t know beans about this actress, but her character is a total energy suck. I really get sleepy every time she’s onscreen.
And I don’t want to pass judgment too quickly, as this is the first I’m seeing of her, but there’s got to be a correlation between her performance and my great dislike for her character. She’s just totally unbelievable in both ends of the spectrum, which she’s had to play: a tough cop, and a scaredy cop. Chances are, you’d have to be good at one of those, right?
The producers have released a statement that Sunwoo Sun was dissatisfied with her character from the get-go. Don’t blame her; I’d be pissed if I got to work and my character was all “Boo hoo, I’m too scared to fight…but then I also want to join the squad with the toughest cases…but I’m scared.” WTF? Sunwoo Sun’s agency has in turn stated that she has been responsibly sticking with the production, even longer than she intended. (She reportedly wanted to drop out by Episode 5.)
She’s the one dropping the drama, but I think Show will be better off without her, ’cause I enjoy everyone’s scenes but hers. So…silver lining, yeah?
Her character will be making her last appearance on Monday’s Episode 7, and has been written out, Episode 8 onwards. Crime Squad airs Monday-Tuesday on KBS.
