According to MBC's announcement, Koo Hye-seon had been suffering from dizziness, breathing problems, and allergies on set to the point where she was taken to the emergency room. Given the doctor's prognosis, both the actress and the producers decided to put Koo Hye-seon's health first and cut short her appearance on the show. Going forward, her character, Jang Hae-dang, a struggling nightclub singer, will be played by Jang Hee-jin, who just wrapped up "Introvert Boss".
Koo Hye-seon's departure comes as the show is heading into the 7th episode of a 50-episode run, amidst criticisms from viewers of her overly broad acting style.
While Koo Hye-seon has never been known for her great acting, her performance in 2015's "Blood" was unfairly singled out as the reason for that drama's failure. Since then, Koo Hye-seon regained her popularity thanks to her marriage to co-star, Ahn Jae-hyeon and subsequent appearance on reality show, "Newlywed Diary". But it wasn't enough to prevent this latest acting controversy from surfacing in what was supposed to be her comeback project. Unfortunately, with Jang Hee-jin slated to take over this weekend's episodes, we'll never know if Koo Hye-seon could have recovered from her shaky start.
In the meantime, here's hoping she feels better soon.
