The said absence was because of Go Ah Sung’s health, due to an injury. Following this, officials have selected another actress as her replacement to play the role of Grand Princess Hwari.

“Go Ara has confirmed her appearance in the vacant spot and is preparing to film.”

It can be recalled that TVING unveiled the list of stars joining the upcoming TVING series.

On August 8, the network announced that SF9’s Chani, Han Seung Yeon, and Son Woo Hyun will join Go Ah Sung and Jang Ryul in the upcoming K-drama, sparking excitement among viewers.

Helmed by “No, Thank You” director Lee Kwang Young, “The Love Story of Chunhwa” is a period drama that depicts the story of a princess who is looking for the right person to marry instead of the one that her family has chosen for her.

While Princess Hwa Ri is played by Go Ara, Jang Ryul takes on the character of Choi Hwan, one of the family’s chosen candidates to be her husband.

However, Princess Hwa Ri doubts Jang Ryul because of his playboy aura.

Meanwhile, the upcoming period drama is set to join a list of K-dramas premiering in 2024.
