Since Kim Sae Ron portrays one of its lead characters, they are required to reshoot portions of the scenes that feature the actress.

It is common knowledge that companies can sue actors to recover the costs incurred due to refilming after celebrities find themselves trapped in issues.

However, the musical actress disappointed many viewers for her mediocre performance, which comes off as slightly “annoying.”

Compared to Kim Tae Ri’s young, bright and positive Na Hee Do, Kim So Hyun has a gloomy and tired version which seemed like a completely different character.

Seo Ye Ji

Actress Seo Ye Ji captured the public’s attention with her performance in the drama “It’s Okay To Not Be Okay.”
