After filming for 3 months, idol drama ‘Fondant Garden’ which is produced by Angie Chai had changed their main actress abruptly from Shara Lin to Jian Man Shu. The tape which the film crew have finished shooting and editing will be voided; the loss is nearly 10 million.
It was reported that Angie Chai had previously seen the tape after the filming and was not satisfied and even asked the director to re-film it. Comic Ritz expressed that “Angie Chai wants to bring out the best for the drama, there’s still room for improvement for some of the previous scenes. Although the loss is not small, the quality for a drama is the most important.”
‘Fondant Garden’ actors and actresses were only officially revealed to the media one month ago, Shara Lin not only went to Hualien for filming, she has also learnt how to make cake for the drama. After everything, it was said that the main actress will be changed which triggers curiosity. Shara Lin’s manager said “Because the filming of drama has been delayed, she also needs to record for her album after that and thus, she withdraw from the drama.”
As for the change of main actress, Comic Ritz said ‘In the first place, our contract with Shara Lin will end in November, if we were to re-film everything now, it will of course be delayed and everything which includes the styling will be to remake again. We did not change our actor because we are against them, it’s simply that they could not meet with the schedule. Main actor Park Jung Min’s schedule was also coordinated many times.”
The filming location of the drama is now in Korea. Recently, the drama crew specially held an opening ceremony for the drama to shoot smoothly. A pig head was placed on the table that day, Kingone Wang playfully stuff note (money) into the pig’s nose. He laughed and said ‘This kind of goodies like seeking the blessing, I certainly need to do some *’originator’!”
The local temperature everyday is below 10 degree Celsius, Jian Man Shu cried that she is going to be frozen into ice. Even Park Jung Min who is a Korean could not stand the temperature, despite that there are fans surrounding the filming scene, he covered himself with a blanket to keep himself warm.
