The actress continued, “I just accepted it as it was. But later, when the movie was released, the new female lead did an interview. She said, ‘The original lead was someone else, but I really wanted the role, so I actively pursued it and got it.'”

Uhm Ji-won expressed her frustration, saying, “I couldn’t even talk about it anywhere”, adding, “I thought to myself, ‘Let’s see who lasts longer in acting, you or me.’ But now, I don’t see her around anymore.”
