Ha Ji-won pulls out of ‘Prometheus’

Actor Ha Ji-won won’t appear in the new television series “Prometheus” due to a scheduling conflict, her agency, Haewadal Entertainment, said Thursday.

In July, she was cast in the drama, which is set to premiere later this year, as the lead character, Chae Eun-seo, an intelligence officer tasked with a secret mission related to North Korea’s denuclearization.

The fictional spy story revolves around a mysterious case in which North Korean scientists working overseas have gone missing on their return to the North. The story idea was partly inspired by the recent detente between North Korea and the United States and the North’s promise to denuclearize.

The character is said to have been specifically created for the actor, so her decision to withdraw will have a negative impact on the production.
