Lee Seung Gi and Lim Ji Yeon Turn Down Casting Offers for “Kill Me Heal Me”

Actor Lee Seung Gi and actress Lim Ji Yeon have both decided to turn down lead roles for MBC’s new Wednesday-Thursday drama, “Kill Me Heal Me.”

Although previous reports stated that they have reached the final stage of negotiations, both stars have now backed out of the drama due to scheduling conflicts.

A representative of the actress explained, “Lim Ji Yeon received an offer for the female lead role on ‘Kill Me Heal Me,’ but due to the filming schedule of the movie ‘Treacherous Retainer,’ she is unable to appear on the drama.”

To the disappointment of many fans, Lee Seung Gi will also be postponing his return to the small screen. The actor has been busy filming the movie “Today’s Love,” which premieres in January.

As the drama is scheduled to air its pilot episode in January, the producers are now forced to speed up the casting process to find new actors for the main roles. Furthermore, some of the scenes take place in the United States, which is another challenge for the production team considering the tightening schedule.
