The next season of K-pop drama “Three Musketeers” was postponed indefinitely, according to news reports.

The drama, starring singer-actor Jung Yong-hwa, was a tvN drama based on Alexandre Dumas’ novel of the same title.

“I heard that the drama’s next project was practically foundered. So I’m trying to find other dramas for my actor,” the manager of an actor who appeared on the drama was quoted as saying.

“I haven’t heard about (the production crew) giving up the drama’s next series. We (actors and production crew) all want to film the next season of the drama. However, it just isn’t coming easy for us,” another manager said.

The drama was originally planned to be made into a trilogy with a 10 billion won production budget, including filming the last season in China.

With the low viewer rating, major investor CJ E&M seems hesitant about putting in more investments, making it difficult for the production team to film the drama’s next season, some show business experts said.

The drama ended in early November with a low viewer rating of below 1 percent, partly because it aired only once a week on Sunday afternoon.
