  • All of the greatest people in history did something bad in their past. Seems to me that it is a Taoist belief many things in life are both contradictory but both are still true. A person can go off and kill all kinds of people in horrible ways and yet still be one of the best fathers and in fact a become a pillar of the community. Acting a part in a play or movie or tv series has a way of giving back to the community that can be immeasurable and far outweigh any bad things one might have done. He may have had a psychological episode in his past but but he is better now and he should be allowed to do the thing that allows him to give back in the best way he can which in this case is through acting. To do this to the actor now just proves that the director and other people in charge are no better than now than the actor was when the shootings took place. It proves that the only thing they care about is putting people down and destroying them for any excuses whatsoever rather than uproot their hero doing things in the present time. What they should be doing is promoting the the fact that no matter what bad things one has done in the past one can , as this actor did, overcome those past transgressions To become something greater that can inspire others to do better. Even the gods have done terrible things for the wrong reasons but they still turn around do wonderful things for others

  • Jisoo is the best in this role why replacing him he already did some filming he should finishing the shoot and those rumors against him who ever that person is should investigate her
