Bye-bye, Daemul

Stick a fork in it, Daemul is done. Over. Finito.

After all its recent problems including the departure of its original PD, the high-budget SBS drama based on the popular manhwa has been removed from SBS’s upcoming lineup, and now its stars Go Hyun-jung and Kwon Sang-woo have been officially released. They are now free to look at new drama projects.

Go Hyun-jung has already selected her next role, in the film You Don’t Even Know [잘 알지도 못하면서] directed by Hong Sang-soo. She’s waiving most of her acting fee, as are most of the other actors (Kim Tae-woo, Eom Ji-won, Yoo Joon-sang) and beginning filming next month.

Kwon Sang-woo is preparing for his upcoming wedding to actress Sohn Tae-young on September 28, but is still busy considering possible roles. A representative for the actor expressed his desire to get back to work, having spent a lot of (now-wasted) time waiting for Daemul to get off the ground.

Oh, well. Daemul had seemed like a potentially intriguing drama, but it’s had a pretty rough road. Too bad.

I'm relieved to here this. I can not stand Go Hyun-jung. The plot doesn't sound interesting to me either. Kwon Sang Woo can do so much better.

It really sounded promising too! But heh, it did seem like disastrous planning.

What was the story going to about anyways? I think that Kwan Sang-woo is such a good actor. Did he have hard times growing up or something? Because he cries so passionately. lol, well I just noticed that he cries really natural and not like some actors/actress who can't shed a tear. I hope his next drama is going to be good!

@dramabeans,

Any news how much money was lost producing Daemul?

@Philippa,

Big Fish is about a woman presidential candidate. KSW was to play a socialite hired to seduce her and bring her down. The story was a manhwa (same author as War of Money), and SBS has been trying to produce this series for years. Apparently the fish swam away. :(
