The world of entertainment is constantly evolving, with new stars rising to fame and others falling from grace. One recent example of the latter is actress Yoo Ah-in, who has been embroiled in a drug scandal that has led to her being dropped from the cast of Netflix's hit series "Hellbound 2."
"Hellbound" is a Korean supernatural series on Netflix that centers around a phenomenon where people are sentenced to hell by unannounced judges of hell. The story revolves around the 'New Truth Society' and those who seek to uncover the truth of the incident. The series is highly praised for director Yeon Sang-ho's unique and heavy narrative and directing style.
When season 1 was released in November 2021, it caused a sensation not only in Korea but also internationally. The show quickly gained a large fanbase and was praised for its gripping storyline and outstanding performances by its cast, including Yoo Ah-in.
However, the production of "Hellbound 2" was recently impacted by a scandal involving Yoo Ah-in's alleged drug use.
Yoo Ah-in has been accused of habitual drug use, which led to her being dropped from the cast of "Hellbound 2." According to reports, the actress was suspected of drug use after the detection of additional drugs beyond allegations of habitual propofol administration.
Earlier this year, the National Forensic Service detected four types of drugs, including propofol, hemp, cocaine, and ketamine, in an infant's hair during a detailed appraisal. The police will now conduct an intensive investigation into the infant and their neighbors, including Yoo Ah-in, who was identified as a possible suspect.
As a result of the scandal, Yoo Ah-in will no longer be a part of "Hellbound 2," and her character of Jung Jin-soo will be portrayed by actor Kim Sung-chul. Filming for the series is set to begin this summer, with a release date scheduled for next year.
The decision to drop Yoo Ah-in from "Hellbound 2" has had a significant impact on the production of the series. The showrunners were forced to make last-minute changes to the cast, which will undoubtedly have an effect on the storyline and character development.
Moreover, Yoo Ah-in's absence from the show is likely to disappoint fans who were eagerly anticipating her return in season 2. It remains to be seen whether Kim Sung-chul will be able to fill the void left by Yoo Ah-in and deliver a performance that is up to par with the high standards set by the original cast.
