Kim Jung-hyun has dropped out of ongoing MBC drama series Time co-starring Seohyun. The actor was advised by doctors to take a break due to physical and emotional exhaustion. Kim Jung-Hyun has been suffering from an eating disorder and sleeping disorder while working on the drama series.
Previously, the actor was criticized by netizens for his cold demeanor during the drama’s press junket. His agency was quick to respond saying Kim Jung-hyun was so immersed in his role of a man who’s terminally ill that he’s having a really hard time. By the look of things now, it seems like he really is having troubles with being too invested in his character.
The drama series will not cast someone else to play Cheon Soo-ho, but instead, he will be written him out of the script earlier than scheduled.
