Teen actor Jung Joon Won will no longer appear in the hit series “The World of The Married.”
On May 11, one representative from the drama released a statement that Cha Haegang’s, played by the young actor, last scene in the drama will be his appearance in episode 14, which aired on May 9. This means that Jung Joon Won will no longer appear in the remaining episodes.
A statement explained that his parts or role has already been completed, and it is not because of his underage drinking and smoking issue that broke out just recently. The representative clarified that the termination of his role is not related to the actor’s current scandal.
Previously, the teenage actor sparked controversy after photos of him and his group of friends were in a restaurant and were surrounded by several bottles of beer and soju. The snaps instantly circulated online, plus, there was a picture where his friends were seen holding a stick of cigarette, hinting that they are smoking, though he was not captured in that particular snippet.
Since the actor is currently 15 years of age (17 in his Korean age), he is considered underage for drinking as well as smoking. The
DAIN Entertainment Jung Joon Won’s agency has also released an official apology statement regarding the issue.
“The World of The Married” is scheduled to air its last two remaining episodes on May 15 and 16.
