Byun Yo Han Drops Out of Sci-fi K-drama City of Stars, Search for Male Lead Begins Anew


Seems like no one wants to live in the City of Stars. The big budget sci-fi K-drama just lost its male lead Byun Yo Han, which speaks volumes since it’s his first big drama male lead role and still he passed. City of Stars first got on the radar in early 2018 with talks of having Hyun Bin and Jang Dong Gun starring as the dual male leads. Both ended up declining, with Hyun Bin selecting Memories of Alhambra and Jang Dong Gun picking saguek Asadal Chronicles. City of Stars was on the back burner until late last year when Byun Yo Han reportedly accepted as the male lead and production started gearing up. It’s now ground to a halt as the drama needs to look of a new male lead who wants to go up to the City of Stars with PD Jang Jin who is an acclaimed movie director and producer so this was supposed to be his first drama foray.
