Three Days in danger of losing lead actor Yoochun

javabeans: Um. What is wrong with Three Days?

girlfriday: I can’t even with this show.

javabeans: At first when it started to hedge about timeslots and airdates, I was willing to give it the benefit of the doubt, because sure, not all pre-production schedules have to go super smoothly. But now its star, Yoochun, is backpedaling on even doing the drama at all? This is bad news bears.

girlfriday: It’s a disaster. So apparently what happened was, his current movie Sea Fog is shooting right now, and as soon as it heard that Three Days was being dropped by SBS, it went ahead and scheduled Yoochun for shoots, only to have SBS take it back and put it on their February schedule after all, leaving Yoochun double-booked for the drama and the movie. Er, what kind of movie does their production schedule based on the wishy-washy SBS drama department anyway?

javabeans: I know, you’d think there’d be a better system in place. Unless… there’s actually a reason that Three Days is bumping up against so much trouble and this is just a sign to all of us to jump ship. Where there’s smoke, yada yada.

girlfriday: I find it really strange that Yoochun is SUDDENLY too busy because of a movie he’s already been shooting.

javabeans: Right? He is an idol star who, like, has shot dramas around his overseas concert dates and recording schedules. I have no reason to believe that Three Days would be more prone to production issues (it’s not a grandiose sageuk, doesn’t need extra time for special effects, not especially high-budget or anything), but all this news about its production uncertainties does make me wonder.

girlfriday: Seriously. Like you say, it’s totally possible that there’s nothing really wrong with the show, but there’s sort of a critical mass of problems for the production that make it hard to ignore. I expect them to do another round of negotiations and come back with more reassurances that everything is really fine, but on the off chance that they really do lose their star, uh…

javabeans: Well if Yoochun’s not gonna do it, I’m probably not gonna watch it, is all I’m sayin’. I mean, it’s not like I’m a super fangirl who will watch whatever he does, but first of all, he does have a nose for meaty roles and if he drops it I’m gonna be suspicious, and secondly, unless you get somebody even better, I don’t have such an attachment to the writer of Ghost or Sign to keep me interested.

girlfriday: Why does dramaland always do this to the shows I’m most looking forward to? Is it me? Did I curse it with my optimism?

javabeans: Yes. The universe wants you to be miserable and pessimistic.

girlfriday: Well if Yoochun: Presidential Bodyguard doesn’t happen, I’ll be well on my way.

javabeans: Not that we needed the push, but, you know.

Too bad! I'm looking forward to watch this drama because of Chun. If not him, it would be better if they could get a superb actor that would really fit in to the role. "The one who could really gives JUSTICE to the role".
How about Kim Jaejoong, instead?

Noooo, i do love jaejoong, as jaejoong, not as an actor
He doesn't seem natural in front of camera for tv production, he's home for concert camera. I am a big fans of JYJ, all of them, but they sure have their own capabilities and yoochun sure can lead dramas better than jaejoong could. Please yoochuniee, don't drop this drama. If he dropped it, i'm not gonna watch it, unless they cast someone better. Yoo ah in? He could be badass but i'm not really buying into him

LOL it's not like his people are producing the drama to put the other guy in the group in his place or whatever.
I don't mind their acting , it's better than most idols but both of them are too pretty to be convincing bodyguards tbh .

It will be competing with Kim Hyun Joong's drama?

If Micky is out, probably they will go for another idol-turn-actor.. Hmmm.

They will need an idol-turn-actor that is as popular as Kim Hyun Joong then. Heh.

But that great Ahjussi playing the Prime Minister is still in right.

Yoochun is still the lead for the drama. The production company released a statement that they are just going to change the schedule for when he's filming so it doesn't conflict with filming for Sea Fog. They also said that Yoochun dropping out as lead is irrelevant news...it's not going to happen so no worries.

Rumors about a lead star jumping ship is worrisome but the bigger picture is what worries me the most... So because tere were news about three days not airing soon,the movie made a new schedule out of nowhere??how often that must happen?? Thats lame! Sounds pretty amateur to me but we're talking about an industry that films episodes on the go manipulating the script and capture more audience...

0

Amateur
...or calculated.

Could be that they see an opportunity to boost ratings by re-casting the lead. If so, I'd imagine they'd try for someone who is hot right now BUT is a more proven commodity in the badass (yet sympathetic) department. KWB comes to mind.

Sometimes these decisions are made based on what the show will be competing against. Perhaps they're re-strategizing based on how to maximize ratings while airing opposite Age of Feeling?

Current update:

"We are going through schedule adjustment with the agency side right now. We are waiting for confirmation from the agency"

"The filming of Seafog will be parallel with that of Three Days. So we are going through coordination to make it fit. The talk of dropping out is irrelevant"

Hmm, this is an interesting bit of news.

Perhaps they simply are facing a scheduling dilemma that needs to be cleared up. I'm willing to give them a little time and see what happens.

Now, if in addition to Yoochun dropping out, we then hear that Sohn Hyun-joo drops out, well then ..... not good.

Sucks to hear more trouble for this drama. I really like the storyline for this drama. It would be my first Yoochun drama, and I was looking forward to seeing him in it. Hopefully things can work out.

I'd be interested in Won Bin in that role, however, that is not going to happen.

Maybe Kim Jae Wook should have held out his project picking for this occasion!

Lol, just want to make a light in the gloom, I'm kidding. I'd be pretty bummed if Yoochun leaves this, too. I was looking forward to seeing him as serious and cool.

Can't really think of any others to replace him...Song Jae Rim? (I just wanna see him in something good.) I dunno...who's a young actor that isn't busy...

If he does drop this I'll be sad and probably won't watch this when it airs, because I was looking forward to seeing him in something I could actually stand to watch.

But it will depend on who they get to replace him. Maybe Park Ki-woong? Or someone good, at least.

Yoochun is the only idol turn actor that I could stand to watch.
I doubt they will find another idol actor that would be better than him. I hope they can resolve the schedule conflict. But, If they are going to replace it with another idol turn actor, well..I'll drop this drama.

I don't think he's dropping. I think his side needed to make some noise about him because it was damaging to his image that a drama with his name on it was being cancelled.
In order to do damage control on his "stardom", they need to say he's dropping out. Then SBS has to show that they are working around his schedule.
It's probably not Yoochun doing this, but his agency. It's all a game of the industry: marketing strategy; protecting the image of their star.
I really don't see anything wrong with that. Yoochun is huge.

I think that the real draw to this whole thing are the permise, the production team, the writers & the PD, so I don't really understand the big deal about loosing Yoochun, granted he is a good actor but is he THAT good so I won't watch a drama JUST because he's out?
People who made Tree With Deep Roots, Ghost & Sign I have a great deal of respect to their craft, & I think they are worth anticipating their work for its own merit,
So unless they would bring a modest actor, I have no problem waiting for this
On a side note, can't the get Kim Kang woo or Cha seung Won to get the job done? I mean.. why not bringing a REAL MACHO MAN & drop the teenage idol concept! it's a presidential Bodyguard for God's sake! one needs sometime to get to such position
