A source said that Lee Jung Joon will take over the late Lee Ji Han’s role in The Season of Kkokdu, according to a report made on November 7th. Lee Jung Joon will be playing Han Gye Jeol’s (played by Im Soo Hyang) ex-boyfriend Jung Yi Dean. 

Reports say that the production team decided to look for the late Lee Ji Han’s replacement after a long discussion as there are more scenes to be filmed for the role in the project.

Lee Jung Joon previously showed his strong on-screen presence in Squid Game, and he is currently starring in SBS’ Monday-Tuesday drama, Cheer Up.
