[11.04.07] Eric’s “Poseidon” in crisis – drama may be aborted

May 7, 2011

The drama “Poseidon”, which initially attracted attention as Eric’s comeback project, is now on the verge of being aborted.

“Poseidon”, a drama based on the special ops team of the coast guard, had attracted much attention for its cast of Eric, Kim Kang Woo, Kim Ok Bin, U-Know Yunho and Jeon Hye Bin. Although principal filming started at the end of last year, filming was halted by the Yeonpyeong-do incident and bad weather. Although there were discussions with SBS to arrange for the drama to be broadcast in May, talks eventually fell through and the drama found its future left in the balance.

After this, there were talks of the main cast either dropping the drama or debating to drop the drama. Although Eric and the other cast members have completed filming for 20% of the first episode by the end of last year, the production company have announced that Kim Kang Woo and Kim Ok Bin have decided to drop the project. The other cast members are also in discussions to drop out.

A rep from Eric’s management company told Nocut News on the 6th, “Filming was supposed to have resumed in March but was delayed again. Right now we’re in a frustrating situation where we don’t know when filming will resume or when the drama will be scheduled for broadcast. We’ll have to wait for further advice from the production company.”

Although U-Know Yunho’s management has also expressed that he has yet to drop out of the project, but likewise he won’t be able to keep on waiting.

In response to this, a rep from the production company said, “It’s true that filming was to have resumed in March but was delayed. We’ll be organizing the schedules in April and discuss the filming schedules and broadcast date again. Right now the project has not been aborted. We’re also casting replacements for the actors who have dropped out. We’re also reorganizing the script.”

“Poseidon” was supposed to have taken over the Mon-Tue slot vacated by “Midas” in May, but was dropped in favor of “Sweet Scandal”. Since then the production company has been in talks with MBC but has not been able to secure a broadcast date.
