Yoo Ah-in will not be edited out of ‘Goodbye Earth’.

On the 9th, Netflix stated, “There is currently no set release date for ‘Goodbye Earth’. Yoo Ah-in’s footage will not be edited out as his character contributes to the whole story. Therefore, it is difficult to provide detailed information about the amount of his footage before the series is released.”

Earlier, Sports Chosun reported that ‘Goodbye Earth’ will be released on April 26th. 

‘Goodbye Earth’ is based on the novel of the same name by author Isaka Kotaro, depicting the story set 200 days before the end of the world after the apocalypse is announced. Directed by Kim Jin-min, known for Netflix’s “No Longer Human” and “My Name,” and written by Jung Sung-joo. Originally scheduled for release last year, it was postponed due to Yoo Ah-in’s drug scandal.

Yoo Ah-in was indicted from September 2020 to March last year on charges of taking more than seven types of drugs including propofol, marijuana, cocaine, ketamine, zolpidem, midazolam, and alprazolam. There are also allegations of evidence destruction and coercion of marijuana smoking among acquaintances.


-Right… He’s the main character after all. What a nuisance. 

-There’s really nothing they can do about it…

-I’m sure there will probably a lot of people who won’t watch the series because of him. The staff members must’ve worked hard on it, so I hope they would still release the series. What did the other actors and actresses do wrong to deserve this…

-It’s understandable since he’s the main character, but it’s really unfair for the staff and other actors and actressesㅠㅠ

-Still, since it’s an OTT drama, only those who want to watch will watch. Besides, the staff members and other supporting actors and actresses could still put this series as a part of their portfolio anyway.

-Ugh, I really hate him. Since it’s already been filmed, there’s nothing they can do. However, I hope he faces the consequences he deserves. He shouldn’t be back on TV again, though.
