SBS’s ongoing drama Taxi Driver has announced that there has been a change in the production’s screenwriter.
Earlier today, May 17, an official from the drama said, “Writer Oh Sang-ho, who wrote the drama’s script from the 1st episode until the 10th episode, has been replaced by Lee Ji-hyun starting from the 11th episode. Due to the writer’s [Oh] and the director’s [Park Joon-woo] different opinions regarding the drama’s direction, they mutually agreed that Oh Sang-ho will step down, and Lee Ji-hyun will write the remaining episodes.”
Taxi Driver centers on a small taxi company that maintains an underground operation in which their employees take revenge on behalf of their callers who are victims of injustice in the society. It stars Lee Je-hoon (Move to Heaven), Esom (Save Me 2), Kim Eui-sung (Arthdal Chronicles), Pyo Ye-jin (VIP), Jang Hyuk-jin (Awaken), Cha Ji-yeon (Scent of a Woman), and Bae Yoo-ram (Zombie Detective). The drama has been garnering popularity and maintaining stable viewership ratings.
