Actress Lee Ha Na, who was originally confirmed to play opposite Song Jae Rim in SBS's upcoming weekend drama 'Our Gab Soon,' reportedly backed out the last minute following the first read-through. 

An insider informed the The Daily Sports on July 10, "Lee Ha Na has decided against appearing in SBS's new weekend drama 'Our Gab Soon.'" 

Lee Ha Na was present at the drama's table-read this past July 2 at SBS's production center in Tanhyeon-dong. The actress was said to have familiarized herself with her co-stars, and everything had progressed smoothly. Following the table-read, SBS confirmed Lee Ha Na's casting in 'Our Gab Soon.' However, the actress's confirmed casting abruptly fell through when she backed out, for reasons unspecified, the last minute.

The insider further related, "We're currently searching for a new actress. As soon as negotiations conclude, we plan to begin filming." 

Netizens are putting forth various speculations such as that Lee Ha Na was booted by a sponsored actress or that she simply didn't like the script. What do you think?

Kim So Eun fits much better, Is this Drama being live-shoot?

First of all before the script reading, I send a private message to SBS to tell them that Lee Ha Na & Song Jae Rim have no chemistry. And Lee Ha Na looks more older than Jae Rim sibling on that drama. I told them if they want a higher rating on the upcoming drama, the lead cast should have a great chemistry. I never said Lee Ha Na is not good. She was a great actress, the only thing was they don't have spark in viewer's eyes. This is my opinion only. I don't know what was Lee Ha Na's main reason for quitting.

My bet is somebody/actor/actress doesn't like her and booted her out of the drama.

YOU PREDICTED THE FUTURE! Apparently Kim So Eun is in final negotiations. Head on over to Dramabeans to read the article.

I really like her! Hope it's a legit reason instead of a personal preference one.

This stuff happens from time to time. It's not that big a deal.

Not if she got as far as the first table read. That's VERY late to pull out, and is very bad for the production schedule.

I don't care for her as an actress much but this doesn't mean she's being "unprofessional". If she didn't have a binding contract there's all kinds of reasons why she might have withdrawn. I'd like to see Song Jae rim in lead. I'm skeptical that these two can generate any chemistry because they didn't the first time.

Watch this drama get high ratings and popularity and she's going to regret dropping out.
