CNBlue’s Jung Yong Hwa has pulled out from his role in SBS’s new drama Heirs, it has been confirmed.
The singer’s agency, FNC Entertainment, announced his departure from the new SBS series, claiming the 23-year-old clashed with producers over the direction of his character.”Failing to reach an agreement regarding differences on the character with the producers, both parties have mutually decided on withdrawal,” says the rep. “The producers respected our decisions and things were settled pleasantly.”
They add: “Jung Yong Hwa wants to concentrate on his world tour and additional musical activities CNBlue has planned in the second half of the year. He received offers from many [production companies]. He is reviewing them and we’re sure that he will be able to return with a good project soon.”
