Kim Hyun Joong Drops Drama “City Conquest”

Kim Hyun Joong Drops Drama “City Conquest”

It’s been reported that singer-actor Kim Hyun Joong will be withdrawing from the upcoming drama “City Conquest.”

On February 6, a representative of Key East Entertainment stated, “We are in the process of withdrawing from the cast of ‘City Conquest.’ We’re currently talking with the production team to find the right timing to leave, but he will be leaving.’ He continued, “We’re very sad to have him drop ‘City Conquest’ as it was an opportunity for him to greet his fans through the small screen. We have been pushing back a lot of other schedules for ‘City Conquest,’ so he will be busy catching up with all of them. Kim Hyun Joong is scheduled for a Japanese tour until March. For now, he will be focusing on his activities as a singer.

“City Conquest” has been busy filming since last summer. Had he stayed with the series, Kim Hyun Joong would have played Baek Mir, who fights the corrupted society that destroyed his family. Meanwhile, Nam Goong Min and Jung Yumi are also in discussions of dropping out of the drama.

I don't know the real drama behind this whole issue. I am sure it is complex. Some things are beyond one's control. I like KHJ as a person but as an actor he still has some way to go. When you compare him to other male leads acting skills, it is a tough competition. I feel it would be better if he chooses good secondary male lead roles at the moment to brush up and develop his acting slowly. He has the work ethics and potential to do well. Good luck KHJ on your next project.

So sad. I was looking forward to watching this. I've heard about the "too much violence" thing as well... but I wonder if it's worse than Hero or Holy Land. Oh well... anticipating his Korean comeback. ^^

Aw, it's so sad that he dropped from this drama. I was just anticipating to watch this because of him, but unfortunately this won't happen. What went wrong anyway?

It's been a tough road for the drama. I wonder what's wrong with it that none of the network would want to pick it up.
