K-Pop girl group Red Velvet might have to perform in North Korea without one of their members. Joy, who currently has the lead role in the K-drama ‘Tempted‘, may have to stay behind to continue shooting for future episodes.
To say that the way K-drama works is primitive isn’t exactly a statement that is far-off from reality. In many cases, cast members shoot for multiple episodes in a short period of time and it gets aired right away the following week. In Joy’s case, it’s almost as if she’s appearing live on screen.
The director for ‘Tempted’ is currently debating over whether he should let Joy go to North Korea and reschedule with other actors and actresses, or bombard her schedule with non-stop shooting sessions before she leaves.
Because going to North Korea to represent her country is different from any other concert schedules, netizens have been criticizing the director for even contemplating about such a scenario.
