The drama, which was slated to be a remake of a 2001 film, was supposedly canceled due to reasons pertaining to respecting the content made by the original writer of the film. But new details have been reported regarding the true reason for the drama's cancellation.

As per reports, industry insiders have revealed the real reason for the cancellation of the drama. Although the reports connecting to respecting the original writer were true, the main reason was ultimately due to the screenwriter's religious beliefs.

Notably, in the drama remake, NCT's Jaehyun plays a male high school student and actor Lee Hyun Wook cast as a grieving high school teacher, and the romantic connection between the two male characters was the main reason regarding the cancellation.

As per the industry insiders, concerns reached Kakao Entertainment from the original screenwriter regarding the remake during the production process. Due to this, Kakao Entertainment decided to stop the production to respect the screenwriter's "religious beliefs."

Here's what industry insiders have to say regarding the matter:

"The original screenwriter became a devout Christian after writing 'Bungee Jumping Of Their Own.' Then they heard the recent news that it would be remade into a drama. As a response, the writer shared their opposition to the remake of the film, citing their religious beliefs as the reason. It was also reported that the original screenwriter expressed their intention to take legal action against the production company if they chose to proceed with the remake.

There were no financial demands made, nor was there any room for negotiation since the production was opposed due to religious beliefs."
