Actor Kim Bum has decided to drop out of the movie 71 that he had previously been cast in with Big Bang’s Seung Ri and fellow actor Yoo Seung Ho.

The movie 71 tells the story about 71 South Korean student soldiers who fight against several hundred North Korean soldiers in the war on August 10th, 1950. The South Korean soldiers are led by their three commanders, Yun Chi Wook (Seungri), Park Han Seob (Kim Bum), and Eugene/Yoo Jin (Yoo SeungHo).

It has been revealed that due to the tight scheduling of his other movie, Emergency and his drama Dream, it wasn’t feasible to be working on 71 also. It must be hard to be the “It” boy, although I wonder how this will affect the movie’s production now that one of its top actors is out.
