Netflix’s announcement that actor Yoo Ah-in would lead its new original series “Goodbye Earth” in 2022 raised high expectations for his performance in another dystopian series, following his success in the platform’s “Hellbound.”But the series created an even bigger buzz when news of the actor’s illegal drug use allegations broke out a year later. This led the platform to indefinitely postpone its release as new charges against Yoo continued to surface.After undergoing a re-edit to remove scenes featuring Yoo, the series is finally set for release on April 24. The actor is currently on trial facing charges of abusing medical drugs on 181 occasions between 2020 and 2022.

“(Yoo’s) issue surfaced during my editing of the first three episodes. Initially, I didn’t anticipate it becoming complicated, so I hoped it would resolve itself. However, matters didn’t progress as I had anticipated. Meanwhile, I had been considering approaching Netflix to request another edit on the episodes. Frankly, I saw it as an opportunity to continue refining the work,” the series’ director Kim Jin-min said during a press conference, held at Mondrian Seoul Itaewon in Yongsan District, Seoul, Friday.“It was my job to make sure viewers weren’t offended. So I edited out things that would make them feel uneasy, even adjusting (Yoo’s) screen time. However, given the significance of his character, complete adjustment was not feasible…I tried very hard to make it convincing enough by editing Yoo’s parts while not undermining other actors’ 카지노사이트킹 efforts. I earnestly ask for your understanding .”
