SBS’s Daemul on the skids
The high-profile (and high-budget) upcoming SBS drama Daemul (Big Fish), starring Go Hyun Jung and Kwon Sang Woo as a female president and a gigolo, is in danger of going bust.
The series, originally planned for the second half of this year, has halted production. It’s having difficulty coming together; because of a rift between SBS and the production company due to so-called “director replacement issues,” PD Kim Hyung Shik has stepped back, and SBS is also avoiding involvement. It’s unclear whether the series will be able to continue.
The actors (she in her follow-up to hit cop drama H.I.T., he attempting to spring back from melodrama flop Bad Love) are awaiting an official decision from the production company.
Daemul was originally a manhwa published serially in a sports newspaper by creator Park In Kwon. The drama is in the hands of Lee Kim Productions, which also produced What Happened in Bali and War of Money.
