The Truth Behind the Casting Change of [Material Queen]

The Truth Behind the Casting Change of [Material Queen] -
Vanness Wu Replaced Jerry Yan at One Third of the Casting Fee

Idol drama [Material Queen] changes its leading man from Jerry Yan to Vanness Wu. Although Jerry said that he had to quit due to health issue, the truth was that he had to withdraw due to the cut of the production funding. The original budget calls for NT$6 million per episode and a total of NT$1.2billion for 20 episodes. However right before the shooting started, the funding from mainland China ran into approval issues. One half of the production budget could not be funded, which included US$20,000 casting fee per episode for Jerry Yan. Therefore Vanness was picked to take over Jerry's role at the last minute at one third of the original casting fee.
