In late 2021, it was reported that mega star Gong Yoo was in talks to join upcoming K-Drama, The Devil (working title). While he had been considering the flick, a recent update on January 13, 2022, announced that Gong Yoo had decided to drop out of the show.
The show would have been his next work after The Silent Sea, and he would have been set to work opposite domestic darling Kim Tae Ri. However, it was reported that he turned it down in the end. The Devil will be written by star writer, Kim Eun Hee, who’s worked on many hits such as Signal, Kingdom and Sign previously.
As Gong Yoo suddenly turned down this upcoming opportunity, many are wondering if there is a reason such as a better drama on the horizon for him.
Gong Yoo made his name through Coffee Prince and later starred in global sensation, Goblin.
