SBS Responds To Reports Of Delay Of Lee Seung Gi And Suzy’s Drama “Vagabond”
The follow-up drama to come after SBS’s Wednesday-Thursday drama “Big Issue” is yet to be determined. This means that it is not certain when the upcoming dramas “Vagabond” and “Absolute Boyfriend” will air.
On the afternoon of April 2, a source from SBS stated, “Whether or not ‘Absolute Boyfriend’ will air after the conclusion of ‘Big Issue’ is not confirmed yet. We are considering either ‘Absolute Boyfriend’ or ‘Vagabond.'”
Earlier that day, Apollo Pictures, the production company of “Absolute Boyfriend,” issued an official press release stating that “Absolute Boyfriend” is scheduled to air after the conclusion of “Big Issue.” Additionally, a news outlet reported that “Absolute Boyfriend” will premiere after the conclusion of “Big Issue.” Another report said this would be followed by “Secret Boutique” (literal title) and then “Vagabond.” If this were to occur, “Vagabond” would air this September.
“Absolute Boyfriend,” based on a popular Japanese manga series of the same name by Watase Yuu, will star Yeo Jin Goo, Girl’s Day’s Minah, Hong Jong Hyun, and others. The drama will be a romance revolving around a special effects artist whose heart has hardened due to past wounds, a humanoid robot designed to be her ideal type, and a top star.
Filming for “Vagabond” is still ongoing. The much-anticipated drama held its first table reading in June of last year, with its premiere first planned for the end of 2018 before then being pushed to May 2019.
