Our favorite Girl’s Day member Hyeri (“Entertainer”, “Reply 1988”) is officially out of the leading role in MBC’s “Picnic.” The drama, that has already secured Kang Ha Neul, is back to the drawing boards for their heroine.
Apparently, a major factor in the decision making was schedule conflict. Hyeri’s agency stated “Hyeri positively considered the offer for Korean-Chinese collaboration drama ‘Picnic’, but the filming period, as well as other factors in general, made it difficult for her to take the role, ultimately, leading to the final rejection.” The singer/actress is also mostly focusing on her Girl’s Day obligations, as the group is set for a come back in October.
“Picnic” is a Chinese-Korean collaboration, and will be a story about a group of idols who crash onto a deserted island after their plane goes down. It is said to be a drama about self growth and coming of age along with a fantasy romance. Bummer for the drama on losing Hyeri. I think she would have matched well opposite Kang Ha Neul. I have a feeling the empty spot will be filled quickly, so stay tuned.
