On May 16, a netizen claiming to be a staff member of 'About Time' posted a photo of the drama filming schedule and stated, "We finished filming up to episode 12. I just want to die TT."
Prior to this, the producers of 'About Time' announced they are replacing Lee Seo Won and re-filming his scenes.

We will work our best to not cause issues in re-filming and editing." He added, "We are working to add more staffs to prevent errors and difficulties following the actor's departure."

As soon as I heard the news, I was confident that it's not actually coming from our staff member." He continued, "At first, I was thinking 'Who?' but I couldn't think of anyone. All of us are tightly focusing on the production with trust. Please give much attention."
