Lee Ji Ah Dropped From Drama Role
Popular “Athena” actress Lee Ji Ah has perhaps experienced the first effects of her controversial divorce, as it has been announced that she has been dropped from the running for an upcoming drama.
Well-known actress Lee Jin Ah’s controversial marriage and subsequent divorce seems to have had its first effect upon her career.
Lee was one of the three candidates competing for the lead female role in the upcoming historical drama “Warrior Baek Dong Soo”. However, on April 26th, representatives of the production company directly cited her recent personal issues as the reasoning behind her sudden exclusion, “Lee Ji Ah was one of the candidates, but she has been dropped due to the recent controversial events.” For those who are unaware, Lee Ji Ah is currently in the midst of an asset division lawsuit with ex-husband and 90s pop icon Seo Taiji.
So far, “Warrior Baek Dong Soo” has cast Ji Chang Wook of “Smile Donghae”, Chun Kwang Ryul of “Baker King”, and Sung Ji Ru of “Crime Squad.” The drama will air Mondays and Tuesdays on SBS, and is slated to begin sometime this July.
