Lee Jong Suk 이종석 ||Unreleased C-Drama - Jade Lover ||Upcoming Movie - The Witch: Part 2 || Upcoming Movie - Decibel


Recommended Posts

There are two date ranges listed there, one is July-Dec 2021 (pre production) and the second is Jan 2022-Jan 2023 (production schedule). I think what they mean by "pre-production" here is not "the drama is entirely pre-produced" but rather, the work the production company puts in before they start shooting with the leads. (Like when you look up a movie in imdb.com and it tells you the status, which might be pre-production, filming, or post-production.) So yeah, it looks like they'll start work in July but maybe not start filming actual scenes until January? At least, that is my best guess, I don't work in the filmmaking industry. 

 

I follow some other drama schedules and feel like some of them these days are getting scheduled pretty far into the future. It used to be that once they announced the cast, they were good to go.

❤❤❤ Lee Jong Suk 이종석 ❤❤❤ -- Award Winning Actor -- -- First Class Model --   -- PROFILE -- Name: Lee Jong Suk Hangul: 이종석 Nationality: Korean Country:  Republic of Ko

Lee Jong Suk, His award speech and his phobia of public speaking. I feel compelled to write something because I am a fan and he gets unnecessary hate for his unfortunate phobia of public speaking

I made this MV quite sometimes ago but only decided to upload last night I know it's gonna get blocked by SBS sooner or later but never mind I just wanna share this with you. enjoy while it last  

Yeah. In both recruitment notices, there were two dates. In the first one from a week ago, it said: 

 

프리기간: 6-7월.    

Pre-Production: June-July

촬영기간: 8-1 (예정)     

Filming Period: August-January (estimated)

 

In the new notice, it says:

 

제작기간: 2021년 7월 ~ 2021년 12월 (프리 예정).   

Production Schedule: July 2021 - December 2021 (pre-production)

2022년 1월 ~ 2023년 1월 (프로덕션 예정)    

January 2022 - January 2023 (estimated production)

 

 

That means something has changed in the last few weeks and it went from being completed in January 2022 to January 2023. I would worry, but I think this is probably good news as far as Jongsuk is concerned. That is very short notice for such a big change in production time. This is probably due to one or both of the leads having a scheduling conflict. If they are unwilling to recast, they will have to wait for them to be available. The updated notice says the main casting is still complete, so that looks like what they're planning to do. 

 

I guess this just raises questions about what else Jongsuk has lined up, then. What changed in just a week's time? 

 

@frozentundra, it's kind of spooky that your misunderstanding turned into a reality. :sweatingbullets: And I was having a hard time imagining this being Jongsuk's comeback drama for awhile now. Maybe we're all being sent strange vibes. :ph34r::lol:

it must be jongsuk. i follow one or two accounts dedicated to yoona and there are no news about her being casted in something else. there isn't anything about jongsuk either, true...but i think he would be more in demand.

Honestly, Jongsuk is no stranger to situations like this. He was signed on for See You Again with Kim Jiwon and cancelled very close to production to do RIABB instead. And I'm sure if it wasn't right before his enlistment, they would have pushed See You Again back instead of cancelling it completely, too. 

 

I agree with you, @jongkkot. The reason I think Jongsuk is behind the schedule change is due to his circumstances. This was supposed to be his comeback drama. He also hasn't starred in anything in almost 3 years. He has the most at stake. His comeback being rescheduled for 2023? I don't think so. If this wasn't his decision and/or due to something else in his schedule, I think we'd see him turning down the role or whoever needed the schedule change ousted instead.

Well...I wish this misunderstanding hadn't turned into reality, lol. I am rather eager for a JS drama. 

 

Maybe his current film is taking longer than expected? Or maybe he is eyeing something else in between?

even if the movie was taking longer, there's no way it's not going to be done by august (worst case scenario, in september, if it takes REALLY long). i don't see production of the drama being stalled until 2022 for a couple more months of filming that go in conflict with their schedule, so it's got to be jongsuk has something else up his sleeve.

I saw that Kim Woobin and So Jisub just finished a movie that took 13 months to shoot, so it does happen. But probably not for a movie like Decibel that was always supposed to take a normal amount of time to film... I think...?

 

It's possible that Jongsuk was never confirmed to star in Big Mouth and he's still waiting to pick/confirm his comeback drama... but if those notices say the main cast is signed on, I'd think we would have heard news of his replacement by now. Honestly, any news would be nice. The unknown is killing me at this point.

@Curiouscat11 No, there isn't a shipping thread about them. I've suggested that one be created for anyone who wants to talk about it, but it hasn't happened yet. Since Jongsuk denied the dating rumors and threatened legal action against false claims, I've never been comfortable discussing it here. :sweatingbullets:

Official statement from A-Man agency on this topic:

 

Hello. This is A-MAN Project.

We are writing to convey the truth regarding the article that was published today about actor Lee Jong Suk, who is under our agency.

1. Lee Jong Suk is not listed in the register as an executive director. He had already resigned from the position of executive director on February 20, before he enlisted in the military in March.
2. Cha Kang Hoon, who has a long time of manager experience, is currently running A-MAN Project. Lee Jong Suk’s younger brother Lee Jong Hyuk is registered as the executive director and he is performing related tasks. The person who was previously registered as executive director left the company in April, and they were naturally replaced with someone else.
3. Kwon Nara signed her exclusive contract in May, and the official work related to this was carried out by the related managers.
4. Lee Jong Suk is aware of the regulations regarding this and he is currently earnestly carrying out his military service. It is unfair that extremely private matters such as conversations and exchanges between two people have been portrayed as profit-seeking activity.
5. We once again confirm that the dating rumors about Lee Jong Suk and Kwon Nara are groundless.
6. In addition, we have captured the actions of those who are creating virulent rumors about our agency’s actors, and we are considering a legal response. We also express that it is unfortunate that there were undiscerning reports with no fact checking that harm the reputation of our artists.

Hoture Instagram posted a few photos 3 days ago, and one of them was Jong Suk, one of which that stood out in pink),  with the caption below

Other than raising expectations for a rare outdoor event, the show stood out for its sustainable efforts and a list of remote VIP guests that included Jaehyun, Lee Jong Suk, Michael B Jordan and others.

https://theactorispresent.kr/100-male-actors/

 

kofic has released the 100 male actors list and jongsuk isn't in it. i've counted and it's 100 names, but i didn't check the female version too. i've noticed almost all the names have a link to their respective profile, only some don't. maybe those haven't been released yet or is it an editing mistake? anyway i think we can almost be 100% sure that jongsuk won't be on the website, at least not this year since it seems they have plans to do it next year as well. i don't know if i want to re-live this nightmare of waiting and broken promises again next year.

Yeah, what a horrible ending to a long, drawn out 5 months. I know that they never promised Jongsuk would be part of it (though, let's be real, it's insane that he isn't), but the way it was handled was just ridiculous and confusing. If you go to this page, you can see there are still 4 male profiles that are coming soon. And they are definitely hiding some kind of failure on their part, because if you go to their YouTube page, the playlist now has 336 videos as of yesterday. With only 200 actors to create highlight reels for, that is impossible. It's also impossible because they haven't uploaded any new videos for the campaign since last month. So somebody added duplicates of the the same videos to make it harder to tell how many there actually are. What we do know is that at least 20 of the names that make up the list of 100 male actors have been added since the campaign ended. I knew they would pull something like this. What a mess.

 

On the bright side, it's nice to have confirmation that Decibel is still filming. With Big Mouth changing their schedule and no official word on any other projects Jongsuk is currently looking into... I don't really know what to expect anymore. I guess I'm waiting for everything to stop being so messy.
