Although it was reported that CNBLUE's Yonghwa had been confirmed for upcoming SBS drama, 'Heirs', it turns out the idol actor has had a change of heart, as he has turned down the lucrative role.
"Yonghwa has decided to turn down his impending role on the new SBS drama, 'Heirs'," FNC Entertainment said. The reason? "The agency and the production company couldn't reach an agreement regarding the character Yonghwa would play," they said. The production company respected Yonghwa's decision and the plan for his appearance was mutually dissolved.
If it all had went on as previously planned, Yonghwa would have starred alongside Lee Min Ho and Park Shin Hye, the latter whom he had already collaborated with on You're Beautiful' and 'Heartstrings'.
With the drama plans scuppered, Yonghwa plans to focus on his music, his agency revealed. "Currently, he is putting his attention towards his world tour and CNBLUE's upcoming album, scheduled for the second half of this year," they said. "Also, he has received offers from many productions, so he should be visiting you with good acting soon."
