Kwon Sang Woo made the headlines yesterday after the production company behind the movie My Love By My Side accused him quitting the movie at the very last minute. His management agency Fantom Entertainment has however refuted the ridiculous accusations by issuing a statement yesterday.
Fantom Entertainment issued a statement through the media yesterday afternoon, “For the movie, Kwon Sang Woo had already been trying to lose weight to prepare for his role (suffering from neurodegenerative disease). This was even before his wedding took place. But the production company claimed that Kwon Sang Woo himself decided to withdraw from the movie and thus losing his place in the movie. We are perplexed and shocked right now.”
They added, “Currently, the movie industry is in the doldrums and it’s difficult to find investors. There have been many investors and distributors who have asked whether they can contribute to the project but the production company keeps avoiding without giving a proper response. We have actually decided to come to a compromise yesterday by meeting with the production company over this matter. But then, they just issued a statement yesterday to say that Kwon Sang Woo has dropped out of the movie. This is unacceptable.”
As no contract was inked with only verbal agreement being made, this is likely be the end of the issue. But the reputation of Kwon Sang Woo takes another hit. Good luck to him as 2008 has been a rotten one with his Daemul stopped at the production stage and now this movie mess. The only good must be his wedding. Kwon Sang Woo next project is understood to be a drama.
