Read the full statement below:
Hello. We are informing you of the cancellation of the press conference for SBS’s new Friday-Saturday drama “One Dollar Lawyer.”
This morning, “One Dollar Lawyer” lead actor Namgoong Min felt unwell, so he carried out a test with a self-test kit and confirmed that he was positive [for COVID-19]. Thus, he is currently planning on conducting a rapid antigen test.
However, for the sake of the actor’s health and on-site safety, we inevitably had to cancel the press conference as well as the “2 O’Clock Escape Cultwo Show” radio live appearance scheduled for today.
We apologize for causing inconvenience to the reporters and viewers who expressed interest in the online press conference. “One Dollar Lawyer” will premiere on Friday September 23 at 10 p.m. as scheduled without changes to the broadcast schedule. We will notify you again after we discuss ways we can provide an alternative to the press conference.
We ask for your generous understanding once again.
“One Dollar Lawyer” is a new drama starring Namgoong Min as Cheon Ji Hoon, a lawyer who only charges an attorney’s fee of 1,000 won (approximately $0.72) despite his renowned skills. A hero who comes to the rescue of clients without money or connections, Cheon Ji Hoon isn’t afraid of facing off against the rich and powerful who use expensive lawyers to escape the law.
“One Dollar Lawyer” premieres on September 23 at 10 p.m. KST. Check out a teaser for the drama here!
Wishing Namgoong Min a speedy recovery!
