Is there such a thing as too many stars? It seems that SBS‘ upcoming drama The One Trying to Wear the Crown, Withstand the Weight – The Heirs, which won’t air until October, is causing a bit of a problem in the Korean entertainment industry due to its amount of star power. Rather, its appeal to stars. So far, Lee Min Ho, Park Shin Hye, Choi Jin Hyuk, Choi Won Young, Kim Sung Ryeong, Kim Woo Bin, Park Hyun Sik of ZE:A, Krystal of f(X), Kang Ha Neul, and Kan Min Hyuk of CNBlue have signed on to join the cast. That’s quite the amount of popular actors, and they’ve all joined it because of the success of Kim Eun Sook‘s previous dramas, like A Gentleman’s Dignity and Secret Garden. It’s even to the point where it’s reported that some of these actors asked to have a role, despite the paycheck. While fans are pleased by the amount of their favorite actors who will appear in the same show, other dramas are having a hard time casting actors. The Heirs has been one of the most hyped dramas of the year, so many actors feel confident that it will be one of the most popular dramas, and because of this, they have turned down other offers. Korean dramas are often considered to be live broadcasts because they’re filmed up to and during the actual broadcast period of the show, enabling the show to change direction depending on the fans reactions. So the fact that The Heirs has been preparing for such a long period of time is a bit out of the norm, and causing trouble. One official expressed their frustration with this occurrence: “It′s very impressive how a drama that will air in October started casting actors since the beginning of the year up until recently. Even dramas that are set to air in September haven′t been able to finish casting yet, but this drama, which will air in October, has already finished putting together its main cast. We didn′t know actors were so bent on joining The Heirs even if it meant they would have to wait 10 months.” Hopefully these other dramas will be able to get amazing actors to help them compete against The Heirs star power. Maybe it will enable some less popular actors to gain a lot of attention. SOURCE: M Wave READ MORE AT 24-7 KPOP: 24-7kpop.com/2013/07/25/is-the-heirs-stealing-all-of-the-top-drama-actors/
