Reason why Suzy refused to appear in movie "Rampant"
On June 23, JYP Entertainment denied the report that Suzy will appear in movie "Rampant", stating "She refused the offer due to her busy schedule". Yeah, she is a super star who has to manage a series of tight schedules, but that's not the only reason why she refused to appear in "Rampant".
Here's a story behind it.
At first, the production crew of "Rampant" tried to cast AOA's Seolhyun as the lead female role. "Rampant" is a historical film, starring famous actor Hyun Bin. Seolhyun had a meeting with the director of "Rampant" and it seemed everything was going ahead smoothly. Seolhyun responded positively to the proposal of "Rampant", and that's why the production crew of "Rampant" didn't even try to cast another actress. They believed that Seolhyun will appear in the movie and do a good job.
However, Seolhyun suddenly began to contact with the production crew of another historical film "Ansi Castle", starring actor Cho Insung. Actually, if she wanted to appear in "Ansi Castle", she should have refused the proposal from "Rampant" first because it's manners between actors and filmmakers in Korea. That's why people in the film industry said "She's selfish and arrogant".
Anyway, in this situation, the production crew of "Rampant" began to try to cast Suzy as the lead female role. And she refused the offer right away. Think about it. Do you think it makes sense that Suzy, the most popular female k-pop idol appears in "Rampant" instead of Seolhyun? It could hurt her pride. In addition, Seolhyun decided to appear in "Ansi Castle" because she thought it's a better movie than "Rampant", which means chances are Suzy will not be able to achieve a big success by appearing in "Rampant".
