Singer and actress IU (real name Lee Ji-eun) dropped out of the drama “Money Game.”
A drama insider hinted on May 27th, “IU, who confirmed her appearance on ‘Money Game’ in January, has dropped out and actress Chun Woo-hee is nominated to replace her spot.”
“Money Game” is an eight-part series newly adapted from Bae Jin-soo’s webtoon “Pi Game” and “Money Game.” The drama depicts the story of eight participants cooperating and defeating each other in an extreme setting where social infrastructure is cut off and the game only ends if someone dies.
Han Jae-rim, director of movies “Emergency Declaration,” “The King” and “The Face,” wrote and directed this series as his first OTT series challenge. Earlier, actors Ryu Jun-yeol, Park Jung-min, Park Hae-jin, Bae Sung-woo, Moon Jung-hee, Lee Yeol-eum, and Lee Joo-young confirmed their appearance, drawing attention. In addition, it is expected that Chun Woo-hee will soon join the team, drawing attention to what synergy she will portray.
“Money Game” will be produced by Studio N, which led Naver Webtoon’s live action business and had done dramas such as “Sweet Home,” “Our Beloved Summer” and “Yumi’s Cells,” and Magnum Nine, which produced the movies “The King” and “Emergency Declaration.” Lotte Culture Works will participate as the investor and co-production company.
