It was previously reported that NCT‘s Jaehyun would be appearing in an upcoming K-Drama, Bungee Jumping Of Their Own.The drama would have been a remake of a movie that starred Lee Eun Ju and Lee Byung Hun in a love story that spans the ages. The two characters, In Woo and Tae Hee, are college freshmen who didn’t believe in love at first sight, but later find themselves in a relationship. They promise to seal their love with a bungee jump but Tae Hee dies suddenly.
As of December 9, 2021, it was reported by Hankyung that the remake had been cancelled. The producers had been in discussions with the original movie’s producers in order to create a quality remake. However, out of respect for the original writer of the movie, they decided to stop the production of the drama.
According to representatives from Kakao Entertainment, the leading commissioners of the drama, they had undergone long discussions with the original writer of the movie but ultimately decided to respect the writer’s wishes and halt the drama. They also have already sought the understanding of the actors that had been cast and since filming had not yet started, the costs incurred so far during pre-production would. be born by Kakao Entertainment and the producing company.
Unfortunately for the fans of NCT’s Jaehyun, actors Lee Hyun Wook and Lim Hyun Bin, it seems that they will not be able to see them through the small screen this time.
