Lee Tae Gon PD, in charge of 'Youth Generation 2', did not refrain from addressing the incident revolving SHINee's Onew. Onew was initially cast for the role of Kwon Ho Chang but decided to withdraw from the production after his harassment charges. The PD said, "At first, when unfavorable situations occur, it's true you go through confusion, but it can be overcome with teamwork. Onew was an actor I liked and who worked very hard, so personally, I think it is unfortunate that such a matter happened to him... It's true that [Onew] had a lot of screen time, but we have plenty of time [to film] so it won't be too big of a problem."
