TVXQ's U-Know Yunho has been attracting attention by continuing on with filming for his drama even though the future of his group might be at stake.
U-Know Yunho was cast for his acting debut on MBC's new Wednesday-Thursday drama 'Heading to the Ground' (Director Park Sungsoo, Writers Kim Solji, Kim Yehji) and began filming on the 28th last month.
During the past week, TVXQ's members YoungWoong Jaejoong, Micky Yoochun and Xiah Junsu filed for a Exclusive Contract Validity Suspension and Provisional Disposition Request against SM Entertainment and the rift between the two sides have gotten deeper as time passes. However, this has not stopped U-Know Yunho from taking his lead role seriously and contunuing with the filming for the drama.
One representative said on the 5th that, "U-Know Yunho is working extremely hard on set as he usually does even though he is surrounded by the chaos that is happening right now," and "We filmed on the 4th at Kyunggi-do Kimpo as well." They are busy filming throughout the night going back and forth from Seoul and its borders for the first few scenes. It was seen that U-Know Yunho has been trying very hard to be the best that he can be for his big role of his first drama.
'Heading to the Ground' is the success story of Cha Bong-goon, a man who has nothing but is driven by passion for playing soccer. U-Know Yunho, who has taken on the lead role, will be working alongside Ara, Lee Yoonji and Lee Sangyoon.
On the other hand, YoungWoong Jaejoong, Micky Yoochun and Xiah Junsu have been stating that, "Our 13-year contract is basically a for-life contract," and "We. all five members, did not receive proper treatment from SM for our hard work." U-Know Yunho, along with Choikang Changmin, did not participate in this lawsuit.
