The late actor Lee Ji Han died in a disaster that happened in Itaewon on October 29th. At that time, the deceased was participating in the filming of “Season of Kkokdu”. Considering the fact that there are more scenes to shoot in the future than the part filmed with Lee Ji Han, the production team decided to find a new actor to replace Lee Ji Han. The production team held an emergency meeting after the death of the deceased and they reportedly contacted new actors after making a casting list.
