A “My Heart Twinkle Twinkle” representative said to OSEN, “We have never discussed dropping Lee Tae Im from the show.” They further clarified, “The reason why Lee Tae Im doesn’t appear in the 19th and 20th episodes is for her health.”
The representative explained, “Once Lee Tae Im communicated to us that her health was not in good condition, we began editing the script starting from the 17th episode. The scripts for the 19th and 20th episodes are an extension of that.”
Earlier, a media agency had claimed that Lee Tae Im had realistically left the drama since she does not appear in the 19th and 20th episodes of the drama.
Meanwhile, Lee Tae Im is currently under fire for a controversy for swearing and cursing at fellow cast members on “Tutoring Across Generations“.
