The casting for the upcoming SBS drama “The Heirs” has been linked to CNBlue many times already, with member Jung Yong Hwa being confirmed for the drama, then withdrawing, and then member Lee Jong Hyun also reportedly joining the drama, which turned out to be completely untrue.
Now it is being reported that a third CNBlue member is joining “The Heirs,” but this time it looks like it is a sure thing with his agency, FNC Entertainment, stating to several news outlets that “Kang Min Hyuk has been cast in Kim Eun Sook’s new drama, ‘The One Trying to Wear the Crown, Bear the Weight- The Heirs.’”
The role Kang Min Hyuk will play is not the role that Jung Yong Hwa was to take on; he is taking on a different role that fits his image. He will play the role of Yoon Chan Young, who is a happy and good-natured guy.
Kang Min Hyuk joins Lee Min Ho, Park Shin Hye, Kim Woo Bin, Choi Jin Hyuk, f(x)’s Krystal, ZE:A’s Park Hyung Sik, and Kang Ha Neul in this star-studded drama. It is slated to air October 9. Can’t wait!
