"First of all, we are apologetic for causing concern to viewers due to the school violence controversy of actor Ji Soo who is starring in KBS's Monday-Tuesday drama River Where the Moon Rises," KBS kicked off its statement.
The network then added that they are extending their sincere consolations to the people who suffered at Ji Soo's hands.
The future of 'River Where The Moon Rises'
The letter contains the details of the upcoming episodes of the series. With Ji Soo removed from the cast, this weekend's episode will not be aired. Simultaneously, KBS will clear the forthcoming episodes 7 and 8 with Ji Soo scenes as much as possible.
And on episode 9, Ji Soo's role will be replaced by another actor. Actor Na In Woo is the best candidate to replace Ji Soo, but the confirmation is still on the wraps.
