IU will no longer be starring in the upcoming drama “Money Game” (literal title).
On May 27, Studio N officially announced that IU had left the cast of “Money Game” due to scheduling conflicts. The singer-actress had previously been confirmed for a star-studded lineup that includes Ryu Jun Yeol, Park Jung Min, Park Hae Joon, Bae Sung Woo, Lee Joo Young, Lee Yul Eum, and Moon Jung Hee.
With IU stepping down from her role, actress Chun Woo Hee will be joining the cast of “Money Game” as her replacement.
Based on Bae Jin Soo’s webtoons “Money Game” and “Pie Game,” the upcoming drama will tell the story of a high-stakes game in which eight participants are placed under extreme circumstances after being cut off from the rest of society. The contestants attempt to gather and hold onto as much money as possible before the game ends—which only happens when someone dies.
Filming for “Money Game” is currently scheduled to begin in mid-June.
