TVXQ Member to Star in a Japanese Drama

Hero Jae-jung
of TVXQ has decided to star in Japanese drama Because I’m Not Honest.” His co-star is Japanese celebrity Juri Ueno, who also has a huge following here in Korea. She had starred in hot musical drama “Nodame Cantabile” in 2006 as a piano prodigy. Japanese media is showing interest in the upcoming TV series, because this is the first time that such huge stars as Hero Jae-jung and Ueno, each representing Korea and Japan, are collaborating in a TV show. This is also Hero’s debut drama in Japan. TVXQ, known as Tohoshinki in Japan, is a megastar status there. This drama represents a new opportunity for a TVXQ member to expand his career overseas. Hero and two other members of TVXQ have been embroiled in an exhausting lawsuit with their agency SM Entertainment over unfair contracts.

Meanwhile, “
Because I’m Not Honest” will start airing in April. It is scheduled for every Thursday at 10 o’clock. The drama also stars model-turned-actor Eita, Megumi Seki, and Tetsuji Tamayama.
