Update: Lee Sun Bin Turns Down Leading Role In “Four Sons”
Updated August 29 KST:
It seems that the drama “Four Sons” will be resuming its search for a lead actress, as Lee Sun Bin has also declined the role.
On August 28, Lee Sun Bin’s agency WellMadeStar ENT stated, “Lee Sun Bin has decided not to appear in the drama ‘Four Sons.’ The actress felt a lot of pressure, and as our agency respects her position, she will not be appearing.”
Lee Sun Bin may be joining “Four Sons.”
On August 25, it was reported that Lee Sun Bin had received an offer for the lead role in “Four Sons,” and was currently in discussion to star in the drama. A source from her agency later confirmed that she had in fact received an offer. Lee Sun Bin most recently starred in JTBC’s “Sketch.”
The drama filmed from January until May, when it came to a halt due to the conflicts between director Jang Tae Yoo and production company Victory Contents due to debt and unpaid wages. The director and actors union each issued statements regarding the situation, while actor Kim Chang Wan withdrew from the drama.
After three months, Victory Contents announced that the drama was to resume filming in August with a new director, Kim Jae Hong. However, Nana’s agency confirmed that the actress had lawfully terminated her contract with production company, citing suspension of filming and other issues, while Victory Contents claimed that the one-sided termination was illegal.
“Four Sons” is a fantasy romance about a man who investigates his mother’s mysterious death, and the strange events that occur as he meets people who have the same face as he does.
