JTBC held a press conference on September 23rd to address Ji Soo’s health and his current project “Fantastic.”
The actor, who has recently undergone surgery to treat osteomyelitis, is said to still be recovering. The network stated “Ji Soo’s condition has improved considerably. He is showing desire to quickly return to the set. Because his recovery is the priority we are changing conditions and waiting so that he can film comfortably when his body and mind are ready”
The network also confirmed that Ji Soo’s role will inadvertently be reduced. A rep for the drama stated “It cannot be helped that his screen time will decrease. I think it will be regrettable for Park Si Yeon. However, his character’s personality and importance will not change.” It is good to hear that the actor is recovering quickly. The drama is doing well and hopefully the writers can continue to make his absence work without it affecting the plot significantly.
“Fantastic” airs on Fridays/Saturdays at 8:30 p.m. KST.
