Here are the excerpts from the two main articles released today.
Hope all will work out and we'll hear something with confirmation soon
Hallyu Stars Eric and Jo Hyun Jae will replace Park Yong Ha, who passed away last June, as the stars of the Love Song. Eric is currently serving the military service and will be released on the 22nd. Jo Hyun Jae finished his service and was released in past June. Both have decided on Love Song as their comeback project.
Eric and Jo Hyun Jae have recently completed the basic agreements for their involvement. Verdi Media has began negotiating with the TV station(s)for the final organization and broadcasting plans with the starting actress, Yoon Eun Hye, Eric & Jo Hyun Jae. Love Song was scheduled for broadcast on KBS, but due to Park Yong Ha's sudden death, planning and production halted. With Eric and Jo Hyun Jae in the fold, it seems that the production will speed up greatly.
A member of Verdi Media stated, "As both Eric and Jo Hyun Jae have established status as Hallyu stars, we expect them to be able to fulfill Park Yong Ha's place. It seems that we can go into filming as soon as we receive the broadcasting plans from the TV station and Eric is released from his military duties". Eric's agency, Top Class Entertainment's Choi Byung Min stated, "We plan to begin negotiating the details of the involvement once the broadcasting schedules are finalized." They are careful with their words as to delay confirmation until the broadcasting schedules are finalized.
