Despite speculation that actor kwon Sang-woo will pull out from his upcoming TV series tentatively titled "Daemul - Big Thing" after coming under fire for colliding his car into several vehicles and then leaving the scene, producers have reaffirmed their position to keep the actor on the show.

"kwon Sang-woo will not step down [from the show] -- it is our CEO's conviction that we will go with whoever we decided on in the first place", an official with producer Lee Kim Productions told Asia Economic Daily over the phone on Monday.

Kwon had taken the country by surprise last week when he was belatedly known to have been indicted on charges of fleeing after colliding his car into several vehicles, including a police car, more than two weeks ago.

Police had originally reported the case as a hit-and-run but is said to have turned over the case to prosecutors as an incident in which Kwon did not take immediate action for the damage he inflicted since there were no casualties involved and damage was done only to property.

Top Korean actress Go Hyun-jung, who will play the heroine of the series, was said to have signed onto the show on the condition that Kwon will play the male lead.

"Daemul - Big Thing", based on a comic book series, is about a first-class gigolo played by Kwon, who helps a human rights lawyer played by Ko, to achieve her dream of becoming Korea's first female president.

The show, set to go into shoot starting July, is scheduled to premiere on October 6.

Kwon has starred in several dramas and movies since his debut in 2001. He rose to stardom in Asia after starring in 2003 TV series "Stairway to Heaven" and has recently been promoting war pic "71-Into the Fire".
