After reports announced that Choi Tae Joon was stepping down from the cast of Hotel Del Luna last minute, netizens began suspecting correlations to Jung Joon Young.
On April 4, Choi Tae Joon’s agency announced that he will no longer be appearing on the upcoming drama Hotel Del Luna alongside IU.
Choi Tae Joon has decided not to join tvN’s Hotel Del Luna. During discussions about the character, he has decided not to participate due to differences in understanding.

Choi Tae Joon was originally assigned the role of Cho Woo Hyun, a descendant of Goguryeo aristocracy, and had even completed the script reading session before announcing his decision. Most actors are known to participate in script reading sessions after confirming their appearance on a drama and it is uncommon for actors to make changes to their decision after the script reading.
According to Ilgan Sports, rookie actor Lee Tae Seon was to fill Choi Tae Joon’s place in the role but it was later reported that discussions are still taking place and the role of Cho Woo Hyun is yet to be decided. Moreover, Lee Tae Seon was being considered for another part.
While nothing has been confirmed, netizens have been taking into consideration the fact that Choi Tae Joon showed his close friendship with Jung Joon Young and Lee Jong Hyun on television and the fact he uploaded photos of them together on his social media, and correlating his decision on Hotel Del Luna with Jung Joon Young’s scandal.
