JTBC’s “Nevertheless” has made the decision to edit out Kim Min Gwi following his controversy and it’s getting mixed responses.
Kim Min Gwi previously admitted to cheating on his girlfriend of six years, he followed that with an apology to his fans and his agency also issued an apology, however, reactions to his apology remained cold.
As a result of the backlash, the drama production team revealed their plans to edit out Kim Min Gwi from the drama. JTBC’s “Nevertheless” only has three episodes left, starting from episode 8, he will be edited out until he’s edited out completely and his screen time is minimized as much as possible.
This decision received mixed responses from fans as some think that this could negatively impact another actress who has nothing to do with his controversy.
The actress in question is Yang Hye Ji, the two actors that play an on-screen couple in the drama. As they were introduced into the drama, they gained popularity.
The more episodes aired, the more people got attached to the couple, they often clash because of their differing views on relationships and fans find them interesting to follow.
Fans are deeply disappointed after hearing that Kim Min Gwi’s scenes will likely be edited out because this means Yang Hye Ji will also be edited out since most of her scenes include Kim Min Gwi in them. [They appear most of the time together in the drama.]
Fans wonder if this was a good decision to make on the production team’s part. Some people think that the actor should not be edited out despite his controversy as it is his personal life, others think that despite the controversy which deserves backlash for, he still should not be edited out because editing him out will cause issues to Yang Hye Ji who had nothing to do with the issue.
There are some fans who think that the actress should get a new boyfriend in the drama, however, it is important to point out that this is highly unlikely to happen because the drama has wrapped up filming recently.
Do you think Kim Min Gwi should be edited out or not?
