On March 5, a source from the broadcasting industry reported that BTOB’s Yook Sungjae would no longer be starring in the tvN drama “Man Who Bakes Bread” (literal translation).
The source stated, “It is true that Yook Sungjae’s casting has fallen through, but the production is going on as scheduled. They are currently in the middle of casting and the production staff of JTBC’s ‘SKY Castle‘ have also joined the crew.”
“Man Who Bakes Bread” is based on a webtoon and tells the story of a cat, who can transform into a human, and his owner. Yook Sungjae was cast as Hong Jo, the cat who becomes human and lives a double life in order to stay by his owner’s side.
Park Eun Bin and Seo Ji Hoon have also been reported to be in talks to star. “Man Who Bakes Bread” is written by Joo Hwa Mi (“Marriage, Not Dating,” “Introverted Boss”), directed by Lee Jong Jae (“100 Days My Prince”) and was scheduled to premiere in the first half of 2019.
