Choi Jin Hyuk will not be appearing in the extended portion of SBS’s “The Last Empress” due to scheduling conflicts.

Earlier this week, it was revealed that “The Last Empress” would be extended to 52 episodes, four 30-minute episodes longer than its original 48. As a result, the finale will air next week on February 21.

February 15, a source from SBS said to My Daily, “Choi Jin Hyuk, who is playing the role of Wang Sik/Woo Bin, has finished filming all of his parts through episode 48. Due to his schedule, he will not be appearing in the episodes airing on February 20 and 21.”

The source added, “We sincerely thank Choi Jin Hyuk, who put his all into his character, and the remaining actors and staff will do their best. We ask for your continued love and support.”

Choi Jin Hyuk’s agency, G-Tree Creative, also made the announcement, saying, “Due to scheduling conflicts, Choi Jin Hyuk is not appearing in [‘The Last Empress’] after yesterday’s episodes. Because of a previously scheduled fan meeting in Taiwan, it was unavoidable that he wrap up filming.”
