After last month’s casting dispute BS opted to postpone the production of ‘School 2020.’ News announced on April 10 that KBS has decided not to proceed with the new version of the ‘School 2020’ show after further discussion.
Casting scandal last month which involved the main female character dominated headlines after his father shared his thoughts about replacing her daughter’s role with another artist.
The sources believed the actress Ahn Seo Hyun had dropped her role from the ‘School 2020’ due to disagreements with the production team and the producers later reported the artist’s father had made inequitable demands.
“Initially, the production staff received several unfair requests from Ahn’s father before signing the casting agreement. However, the production company opted it could no longer contain Ahn, as the requests of her father were too difficult to manage.” – production team
It was then announced that Kim Sae Ron was in works to consider taking on the lead role opposing former X1 member Kim Yo Han.
Sources disclosed on March 19 that Kim Sae Ron will possibly be playing the female lead in ‘School 2020’ opposing former X1 member Kim Yo Han, and her Gold Medalist company stated, “She has previously received the screenplay for ‘School 2020’ and is considering the proposal.”
However, It seems like the current installment of the ‘School’ show will not happen on KBS but it was previously set to air in August this year.
