With Kim Young Dae leaving “School 2021”, Kim Yo Han and Jo Yi Hyun continued the filming of the drama
As revealed from an industry insider: “There was a discussion between the two parties, regarding a disagreement over what was initially negotiated. Therefore, School 2021 is currently looking for a new male lead to replace Kim Young Dae. The candidates have been narrowed down, and the casting process will be done soon.”
Previously, “School 2021” was also entangled in a controversy over the casting in 2020, when actress Ahn Seo Hyun was said to have been eliminated from the female lead role. Actress Kim Sae Ron was discussed as a replacement but she decided to decline the offer in the end.
“School 2021” is scheduled to air this winter.
