Well, this is very disappointing! Shin Sung Rok (Perfume) has stepped down from his lead role in the new Korean drama Penthouse. His agency announced that it was due to scheduling conflicts. I was really looking forward to seeing him in this drama, but alas, it just won’t happen.
Eugene (All About My Mom) and Lee Ji Ah (The Ghost Detective) are still considering starring roles. It looks like we will have to find a new male lead to join them!
Penthouse is about a woman’s ambitious goal to rise into high society through the real estate business, and she will do anything to succeed, even if she becomes a monster along the way. The drama comes from the writer as well as the PD of The Last Empress.
Penthouse is hoping to air later in 2020 on SBS.
