“City of the Sun” Actors Refuse to Film After Not Receiving Pay
Fans of MBC Dramanet‘s “City of the Sun” may not get to find out what happens to their favorite characters, as it appears that the drama will have to end much earlier than expected.
The show stars Kim Jun of Boys Over Flowers fame, who plays the role of a man who tries to preserve his integrity while working at a corrupt construction agency. It also stars actors Jung Joo Yeon, Song Min Jung, Jung Min, and Kim Sung Kyung.
According to a recent media report, some of the members of the cast have been refusing to participate in filming because they haven’t been receiving their pay. It does not identify the actors who are part of this dispute. The Korean Entertainment Management Association is currently conducting an investigation into the matter.
The show was planned to be twenty episodes long, but only fifteen episodes have been completed so far and they have all been aired. Due to the circumstances on set, the production company has announced that they are planning to end the show with the sixteenth episode. It therefore seems unlikely that the show will be able to provide any closure to its ongoing story lines.
On a staff forum for the show, one user posted a comment saying “It appears that this show, which has been deceived by lies all along, will be coming to an end.”
