Kim Soo Hyun Denies He Has Been Cast for ′Tazza 2′
Kim Soo Hyun′s agency denied that Kim Soo Hyun had been confirmed as the lead for Tazza 2.
In a phone call with enews on February 13, a rep from Key East said, "In January, we were asked by an official for Tazza 2 how [Kim Soo Hyun′s] schedule was for the second half of the year. We told the official that he is filming for Be Covert, Be Great, and that he is mostly looking for dramas at the moment."
A media outlet reported earlier that Kim Soo Hyun had agreed in an oral contract that he would star in Tazza 2.
The rep added, "We haven′t even received the scenario, and because he plans to concentrate on dramas for the latter half of the year, we believe it will be difficult for him to appear in Tazza 2. I believe the schedule check was misunderstood as a casting decision."
Tazza 2 is the sequel to Tazza, a 2006 film that gathered a 6.8 million audience. It is to be directed by director Kang Hyung Chul of Scandal Makers and Sunny.
Be Covert, Be Great plans to premiere in the latter half of the year.
