Park Joo-mi replaced by Hong Eun-hee
KBS announced the change on Nov. 26 and said it was confident that Hong will live up to expectations exemplified by Park in portraying Queen Seonduk.
“It wasn’t easy trying to find a suitable replacement, but I think we got it,” said the network.
The switch comes following Park’s car crash in October. At the time, the actress made it clear that she wanted to carry on so long as her health held up.
The show had been put on hold following the incident, and will resume from Dec. 8.
