Actress Yoon Soy-yi has decided to replace Kim Min-jung in MBC TV series "Hero" which is set to premiere in a week.
Kim had originally been set to play the lead female role opposite Hallyu star Lee Jun-ki but pulled out due to an arm injury she suffered while shooting a drama in April, making it impossible for her to participate in shoots.
"We had recently started asking Yoon to play the part but her decision late last night because she is currently also busy with a movie," an official related with the production of "Hero" told Asia Economic Daily over the phone on Wednesday.
"Hero", about a group of youngsters who rebel and fight against a corrupt society, is set to air starting November 11.
Yoon will play the part of Joo Jae-in, a police officer on the homicide team who becomes romantically involved with Jin Do-hyeok, played by Lee Jun-ki who stars as a reporter at a third-rate newspaper.
