Previously, Korea’s most successful idol actress, IU, refused the same offer. So when actor Kim Soo Hyun stated that he would not be starring in the new drama as well, it was quite a disappointment to the Kdrama fans.
IU and Kim Soo Hyun have been among the most highly-anticipated lead couples in the Kdrama industry. They started working together in “Dream High” and continued their close friendships afterward. When they met again and became an iconic couple of “The Producers” Kdrama in 2015, the whole nation was enchanted by how cute they were together.
That is why when Kim Soo Hyun appeared in IU’s “Ending Scene” MV and made a cameo in—literally—the ending scene of “Hotel del Luna”, the excitement was overwhelming. So the reports of Kim Soo Hyun and IU’s comeback as a couple in a new drama by “Crash Landing on You” writer Park Ji Eun—the same writer who wrote “The Producers”—was exceptional for the Kdrama fans.
Unfortunately, IU and Kim Soo Hyun then refused to star in the new project.
The COMPLETE Reason & Explanation Why the Popular Actor Refused the Drama
On the other hand, apparently, Korea’s popular actor Kim Soo Hyun had a pretty good reason and explanation why he had reportedly refused the offer by “Crash Landing on You” and “The Producers” writer Park Ji Eun.
The minute the reports about Kim Soo Hyun starring in a new drama by “Crash Landing on You” writer Park Ji Eun started viral, his agency released an official statement.
In the official statement, Kim Soo Hyun’s agency, Gold Medalist, clarified that he was not going to star in the drama because he had received NO offer in the first place. The agency further explained that they had only received inquiries about Kim Soo Hyun’s schedule. But then, no official offer was sent to the agency or the actor himself.

Why is Kim Soo Hyun Popular?
So, does it mean that Kim Soo Hyun had really refused the new drama offer? Apparently not. That is because he didn’t even receive the offer in the first place. Therefore, there is still a chance of Kim Soo Hyun coming back with this upcoming drama by “Crash Landing on You” writer Park Ji Eun in the future.
