Due to Lee Seo Won’s sexual harassment and threatening with a weapon charges, he was removed from the tvN drama “About time.”
ZE:A’s Kim Dong Jun replaced him and took on the role of the musical genius Jo Jae Yoo.
In a recent V Live broadcast which featured “About time” main cast Lee Sung Kyung, Lee Sang Yoon, and Han Seung Yeon, the cast talked about the last-minute replacement of Kim Dong Jun.
ZE:A’s Kim Dong Jun was praised by the production team for his dedication for his character and the amount of effort he put in, when asked about the filming difficult schedule, he said,
“With all honesty, its hard. Its been chaotic because I joined late, but my co-stars are taking good care of me, and I am trying my best to film. I’ll take care of Mondays and Tuesdays with a good appearance, so please look forward to it.”
Lee Sang Yoon and Lee Sung Kyung also chimed in and explained that he had started filming 12 hours after receiving the script, he even went ahead and dyed his head, they also added that he is always somewhere memorizing his lines.

I have more respect to the cute Kim Dong Jun, I saw his acting back in 2017’s “Black,” I thought he was really good and one of the most underrated idol-actors.
I feel so sorry for him that he had to join so late and is probably filming so many scenes all over again, I wish him good health, he’s been doing good so far.
Although as of episode 4 I haven’t noticed that he had lots of lines, but I am assuming his screen time will increase in the future as the plot develops.
