Sae Ron may not be returning due to health reasons

On April 18 news broke that Kim Sae Ron had decided to pull out of the play due to a “bad mental state.”

XSports News reported that “ [She] knows it is still early to make a comeback. However, she made much effort as she really wanted to act on stage. She hopes that people can view it as her passion for the few fans who are still waiting for her acting.”

“Kim Sae Ron rigorously prepared to return to the stage, including visiting music theatres with her co-stars. However, when her comeback was announced, it was met with some negative public opinions, leading her to be conscious of it. In the end, she decided to exit the play,” another report claimed. And she made the hard choice to exit the play.

Some Korean media outlets also cited health-related reasons for her withdrawal. Regardless, this would have been Kim Sae Ron’s major comeback in three years since her appearance in the KBS special drama ‘Them.’ Her role in the 2023 series “Bloodhounds” was cut-short due to the drunk driving incident amid huge backlash.
