Actress Sung Yuri still has yet to receive her payment after starring in a drama 10 years ago. On January 12, a representative of SL ENT told StarNews, "Sung Yuri has yet to receive payment for the 2009 drama 'Swallow the Sun'". The representative explained, "The amount has said to exceed 80 million KRW (75,117 USD).

This is the only drama that's pending payment."
