Actress Goo Hye Sun and Taiwanese star Woo Chun earned headlines when it was revealed that they would co-star together in “Absolute Boyfriend“.
However, it seems that Wu Chun was switched out for another male lead.
The new male lead, Jiro Wang, is from the same Taiwanese idol group Fahrenheit as Wu Chun.
During a press conference held between the two leads and the media on May 2nd, the idol expressed that he would do his best in his new project.
Wang stated, “I picked the drama because the script is good, and I will try my best.”
Goo Hye Sun candidly expressed, “I did not expect the male lead to be replaced, so I was a little disappointed. However, I decided to continue because I really like the script, and I’m going to put all my whole effort into acting.” She added, “In the past, I shot a Taiwan tourism music video with Fahrenheit. At that time, I felt that Jiro was a very restless person. He always made the atmosphere so pleasant.”
An official from the drama stated, “Since the male lead was replaced, Goo Hye Sun had all the right to reject the role, but we are very thankful to Goo Hye Sun and her agency for continuing.
Meanwhile, it was reported that Wu Chun, who was revealed as the male lead last October, decided to step down from the role because of a problem with the character.
