It is very sad to hear that this Drama has been plug on. To everybody who were excited about seeing the charming actor to be playing multiple roles in the said upcoming mystery-romance “Four Men”, can just swallow their exciteent away, because SBS has decided to shelve the project, according to an official statement given today.
The stated reasons were vague, merely that there were problems with scheduling the show, and ultimately the broadcaster opted not to do so at all. Moreover, PD Oh Jin-seok (an SBS-contracted PD who previously directed Yong-pal and My Sassy Girl) is officially off the project. Asked whether Four Men has a chance at revival at another broadcaster, the SBS rep merely stated that they don’t know.
I suppose it’s always a possibility, though it’s rare for something that was publicly and officially dropped to be picked up by someone else. Initially, the production team had plans to begin filming in November and pre-produce the drama in its entirety. Park Hae-jin was cast in the lead role—er, four of them, playing a man who resembles the heroine’s lost love, as well as twins and another mysterious identity. Nana (The Good Wife) was cast as his detective love interest, Kwak Shi-yang (Chicago Typewriter) as another detective and Park Hae-jin’s friend, and Kyung Su-jin (Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-ju) as a reporter and Nana’s friend.
Anyway SBS’s explanation seems to make sense at all, but still how could they just kill the Project because they didn’t know when to schedule it! Making the fans upset. But there is not much we can do, let’s just wait an see for an Statement later.
