Jung Woo Sung will be replacing Bae Sung Woo’s SBS’ Drama series Delayed Justice as he was dismissed for driving under the influence.
On the 21st, SBS’ Fri-Sat series Delayed Justice has announced that “after a long discussion about the actor’s substitution, Jung Woo Sung has confirmed his appearance and will be joining to film from this week.”
The crew has also explained that they will take some time to reorganize and resume broadcasting in early January next year. As Bae Sung Woo had already finished filming for up to 16 episodes, they will try to edit his air time as much as possible. Jung Woo Sung will play the role of Park Sam Soo for episodes 17 to 20.
Last month, Bae Sung Woo dropped out of Delayed Justice as he was revealed to be booked by the police on charges of drunk driving. There were speculations that Lee Jung Jae would get the role, but it was the director of Bae Sung Woo’s agency, Artist Company, Jung Woo Sung, who got to fill the place.
Currently, the show has gone into a 3-week break for rearrangement, after its 12th episode which was aired on the 12th. Delayed Justice will resume from the new year.
