While most K-Dramas usually have little issues when filming the show from beginning to end, there have been some that ran into unexpected issues, to the point where they had put a halt to filming. Here’s a list of a few K-Dramas that ran into this situation.
Chimera had to put a halt to filming when it was revealed that a scriptwriter was sexually harassed by a staff member, then later traumatized by a producer. Both the staff member and producer were removed from the program once this was revealed.

3. Spy Myung Wol
Midway through Spy Myung-Wol, Han Ye Seul decided to not show up for filming one day and instead flew to the United States. She did this because of the insane working conditions the director made her work through.
The show had to halt filming for a short while due to this. Han Ye Seul eventually returned to South Korea to conclude filming after receiving some backlash from netizens.
4. 20th Century Boy And Girl
20th Century Boy And Girl had to halt filming due to the production company going on strike.
