Although Yonghwa declined his casting offer for ‘Heirs’, fans can now expect to see another member of CNBLUE in the star-studded drama. FNC Entertainment confirmed, “Minhyuk has been confirmed to star to ‘Heirs’. Following his role in KBS 2TV‘s ‘You Who Rolled In Unexpectedly‘ last year, [Minhyuk] was considering productions and recently received a love call from writer Kim Eun Sook and decided to accept the casting offer.”
‘Heirs’ reps commented, “Writer Kim Eun Sook was looking for an actor who fits the kind, happy-go-lucky character of Yoon Chan Young and eventually decided to cast Minhyuk.” They also noted that the character Minhyuk has been cast for is not the same character Yonghwa was in talks for previously.
Minhyuk will join Lee Min Ho, Park Shin Hye, Kim Sung Ryung, f(x)‘s Krystal, Choi Jin Hyuk, Kim Woo Bin, ZE:A‘s Hyungsik, Kim Ji Won, Lim Joo Eun, and Kang Ha Neul, who have all already been confirmed or are in the final stages of completing their casting offer for ‘Heirs’, which will air later this year!
