Actor Lee Sang Woo confirmed as Shin Dong Wook's replacement in 'Touch Your Heart' after inheritance lawsuit controversy

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.

OK there's a lot going on here but this is basically what happened...

Dong Wook inherited the house and some land from his grandfather and after refusing it take it many times in the end accepted it,unfortunately because of working on a drama he was unable to visit him for 10 days and his grandfather contacted him saying all kinds of things mostly though about ruining his career and getting the property back Dong Wook tried to return it to him but granddad refused to take it back(the land was actually in Dong Wooks fathers name) .. now it basically has to go to court to decide who actually owns the land...

From what ive read the eviction noticed never happened though Dong Wooks father did try to get the grandfather out of the house to put him in a retirement home(granddad is 96 in very bad health and the house is in ruins)...

finally heres a statement from Dong Wooks lawyer ...

"grandfather had constantly physically abused, verbally abused, and threatened to kill his wife, son, and grandson. He had also continuously filed lawsuits against his family members" this all lead to a big rift in 2011 when granddad sued one of his sons and until recently when Dong Wook started visiting while filming nearby all the other family members hadnt been to see him in years...

Here is an idea a one sided story which you are presenting with no evidence isn't fact so don't say here's the real story.

Literally everything you have said came out of the actor's fathers mouth and the actor's mouth with no proof of there accusation's, however paperwork actually filed says the guy went shady and put the property in his girlfriend's name.

They were living together, he eventually got kicked out now the actor is taking his revenge. The grandfather has far more proof then the actor or the actor's dad including the property being released to a 3rd parties name. Liking the actor doesn't mean he is telling the truth.

So the grandfather isnt at odds with his whole family??? hasn't tried to sue them multiple times??

Heres a thought for you ...you say this is just out of their mouths but the crap you said is just out of his mouth so why does what he says weight more than them,also none of the so called paperwork is proven yet thats why its going to court(from what ive read) and my reason for saying anything was the biased the one sided reporting of the article here not because i`m a fan,i don't know him and have never seen a drama he`s been in ...

To clear up some of the slanderous allegations made against the grandfather to support the actor, this situation is a part of ongoing litigation against the actor in the FIRST yes first and only lawsuit the grandfather has filed.

The only proof we have of anything in the case other then he said she said is a filing of paperwork by the actor to change the ownership of the property over to a 3rd party his girlfriend, which puts far more credence to the granddather's claims then the actors but who knows the truth at this point. Only corroborating statements at this time is they lived together for a time, then the grandfather kicked him out but had started to reconnect after illness fell upon the old man so he handed over his inheritance to his grandson.

At this point who knows who is telling the truth, so maybe let's wait to slander either side if truth is what you are actually after.

I was looking forward to seeing Dong Wook in this drama. I hope he can get this settled and will be in another drama very soon.

Oh my goodness, the guy is such a scumbag. Grandpa likely give him the early inheritance with trust. Often, the reason they sign the estate early was so the receivers did not have to pay huge inheritance tax. So it was transferred whilst giver is still alive. But it is also with understanding, the given can help them save on tax bill, they will still own the properties till they pass on. If these grandson really sold the property and got his grandpa evicted early, he is really a scumbag. But there may be other issues we dont know about. I hope it will be reveals instead of just a quiet settlement.

A number of Eng translated media had similar articles. But you may know more depending on your source. As I have followed Shin Dong Wook acting career since 12yrs ago. He has a slow steady career path. I was surprised when I read the scandal. I tried verifying the news in other media but information was very lacking. I hope you are right. We can only tell after the investigation is complete. I will not have negative opnion on him in the meantime till all is revealed.
