Interview with Jung Yunho


Filming is progressing and the premiere date nearing for the new soccer drama Heading to the Ground[맨땅에 헤딩], which features an idol star in his acting debut, U-Know Yunho. Casting an idol is nothing new, but putting him in a lead role for his first project makes him something of a wild card. Thus curiosity is building for this drama from the PD of the much-regarded series Ruler of Your Own World, Park Sung-soo. Will the idol star’s debut role be strong enough to carry a drama? Will he pleasantly surprise, or fall short? Below is an interview with Yunho regarding his debut role.
