Drama Reported To Star Lee Sang Yeob And Apink's Jung Eun Ji Denies Rumors Of Cancellation

Upcoming drama “Genie, Earth” (literal title) has denied reports of production on the show being halted.

On June 20, StarNews reported that the drama “Genie, Earth” had recently been cancelled while still in pre-production. Described as a fantasy rom-com action drama, “Genie, Earth” was previously reported to star Lee Sang Yeob and Apink’s Jung Eun Ji, both of whom confirmed back in April that they were in talks to play the leading roles.

However, later that same day, the producers of “Genie, Earth” denied the cancellation rumors. The production team told news outlet OSEN, “There was an article published about production falling apart, but it isn’t true. We are currently in the process of negotiating the broadcast programming.”

They went on to elaborate, “It’s true that we originally planned to negotiate broadcast programming for the drama after it was filmed as a pre-produced series. But there was a change in the investment schedule, and so we wound up negotiating the broadcast programming first.”

“However, that doesn’t mean that production has been cancelled,” they continued. “From the cast to the crew, everyone is waiting together for filming to begin.”

The producers concluded, “We are currently in the process of negotiating so that production can proceed quickly. We are also in the midst of a broad range of discussions regarding programming, and we are making efforts to begin filming [as soon as possible].”

“Genie, Earth” will tell the story of a former prosecutor who accidentally develops superpowers after coming into contact with an extraterrestrial substance. Together with a former special forces counterterrorism unit instructor, he sets out to save the world from evil forces who seek to take over the planet.
