Actor Lee Sang Woo has been cast in tvN's upcoming drama 'Touch Your Heart', as a replacement for actor Shin Dong Wook, who previously dropped out of the production voluntarily.
Lee Sang Woo will now take on the role of prosecutor Kim Se Won in 'Touch Your Heart', originally Shin Dong Wook's role. Kim Se Won is the best friend of the drama's male lead Kwon Jung Rok (played by Lee Dong Wook).
Earlier this week, reports stated that Shin Dong Wook was currently going through a lawsuit with his grandfather over a violation of agreements related to Shin Dong Wook's inheritance. Shin's grandfather alleged that the actor sold his inheritance house without permission, and the new owner of the house sent Shin's grandfather an eviction notice. Shin's grandfather then decided to sue his grandson in order to reclaim property ownership.
Meanwhile, tvN's 'Touch Your Heart' starring Lee Dong Wook, Yoo In Na, and more premieres this February 6 at 9:30 PM KST.
