Jung Woo Sung To Replace Bae Sung Woo In “Delayed Justice” + Drama To Resume Airing In January
The SBS drama is about two men representing victims who are falsely accused. Kwon Sang Woo plays Park Tae Yong, a public defender with only a high school diploma, and Bae Sung Woo previously played the unsophisticated but talented journalist Park Sam Soo who has a knack for writing.
Earlier in December, it was revealed that Bae Sung Woo had been booked for a DUI (driving under the influence) last month, and his driver’s license has been suspended. Following this news, the drama’s production team released a statement announcing Bae Woo Sung’s departure from the drama and plans to reorganize the show.
On December 21, the production team of “Delayed Justice” released a new statement regarding changes to the drama. The full statement is provided below:
We sincerely thank the viewers who have waited for “Delayed Justice.”
Furthermore, we bow our heads in apology once again for causing concern.
After a lengthy discussion regarding a replacement in the cast, actor Jung Woo Sung confirmed his casting, and he will join filming starting this week.
“Delayed Justice” will take time to reorganize and resume broadcasting in early January 2021.
As filming is complete through episode 16, these episodes will air with Bae Sung Woo edited out as much as possible, and from episode 17 until the end with episode 20, actor Jung Woo Sung will play the character of Park Sam Soo and lead the drama.
We will do our best to produce the drama and greet viewers with a better project without making the viewers feel uncomfortable.
“Delayed Justice” will air on Fridays and Saturdays at 10 p.m. KST when it resumes.
