At the very last minute, Kwon Sang-woo has suddenly dropped out of his next movie, “My Love By My Side” (내사랑 내곁에) without rhyme or reason and has left the movie production team scratching their heads.
The newly married actor (to Son Tae-young) has not provided a reason for his decision. Now, the production company are scrambling to replace him before filming begins.
If Kwon Sang-woo had stuck with the role, he would have played a character suffering from the degenerative illness, Lou Gehrig’s disease with Ha Ji-won playing the female lead.
And with Ha Ji-won still with the project, it will be interesting to see who they choose as the male lead.
My first thought as the perfect lead would be puppy-eyed Won Bin, but he would get eaten alive by Ha Ji-won.
As for Kwon Sang-woo, he is an example of what happens when a man get married- he runs home when his wife comes calling.
Actually, the actor announced that his next project is a drama (maybe of epic proportions like East of Eden?)
