DBSK Yunho's First Script Reading

Yunho is the first DBSK member to be in a full length drama (Jaejoong's a tele-movie) and we can see that the leader is trying his very best. It's so like Yunho to give his all in anything he does. =)

With casting complete, production is proceeding for MBC’s soccer drama Heading to the Ground [맨땅에 헤딩], which recently held its first script reading in Ilsan, Kyunggi province.

Among the actors present were the drama’s lead star U-Know Yunho of idol band Dong Bang Shin Ki, who had just arrived from a trip to Japan, as well as Go Ara (Who Are You), Lee Yoon-ji (Pure 19), and Lee Sang-yoon (I Love You, Don’t Cry).

Yunho plays passionate soccer player “Cha Bong-kun,” and reportedly spent over six hours in a phone call with one of the writers to get an in-depth analysis of his character and understanding for his motivations. Meanwhile, Go Ara plays “Kang Hae-bin,” the daughter of the team owner who wants to prove herself and achieve her own success as a sports agent.

Director Park Sung-soo (Ruler of Your Own World) had words of praise for his actors, while writer Kim Sol-ji said that she’s looking forward to seeing the progress unfold.

Heading to the Ground follows horror drama Hon on Wednesdays and Thursdays, and airs its first episode on September 9.
