The much-anticipated onscreen reunion of Zo In Sung and Ha Ji Won, seven years after What Happened in Bali in 2004, is unfortunately, no longer going to happen.

The two were considered as candidates for MBC’s upcoming drama, The King, but Zo ultimately declined the casting offer.

The two gathered a huge following after starring together in What Happened in Bali, and both actors have only gotten more popular since. The King would have been Ha′s first drama since her explosive hit Secret Garden and the first drama for Zo since he was discharged from the army.

A source said, “Ha Ji Won tried to persuade Zo In Sung but it was in vain. Because his next film, Kwon Bob, has been shelved due to investment issues, Zo is being more careful in choosing his next piece. He’s been receiving many offers from dramas, but he seems to be seeking roles for films rather than dramas.”

As Ha has almost decided to be in The King, the production crew is looking for an actor for the male lead. Lee Je Hun, who was originally cast as the secondary lead, is now being considered for the male lead.

A source from the upcoming drama said, “Lee Je Hun worked with director Lee Jae Kyu for the online film project, The Influence starring Lee Byung Hun. The movie brought them to work together. Particularly, as Lee won five best new actor awards this year for his role in the movie, Bleak Night, he is considered qualified enough for the male lead. So there is a high possibility that Lee might be cast opposite Ha.”

The King is a fantasy romantic comedy about South Korean prince who has to marry North Korean special agent. Director Lee Jae Kyu and writers Hong Jin Ah and Hong Ja Ram were the team behind the hit drama, Beethoven Virus (2008).
