Recently, news media source TV Report claimed that CNBlue‘s Lee Jong Hyun was set to be cast for the upcoming SBS drama “Heirs.”

“Heirs” has received a lot of buzz for its writer and cast. Kim Eun Sook, who wrote “Secret Garden” and “A Gentleman’s Dignity,” will pen “Heirs,” and actors Lee Min Ho, Park Shin Hye, Choi Jin Hyuk, and Kim Woo Bin have been confirmed for the cast. So with the news of Lee Jong Hyun’s addition, the excitement grew, but now Lee Jong Hyun’s agency, FNC Entertainment, has denied the casting rumor.

FNC stated to MBN Star News, “We didn’t even get a casting offer.”

Interestingly, fellow CNBlue member Jung Yong Hwa was supposed to star in this drama, but he later dropped the show due to conflicts about his character between his agency and the drama production team.

“Heirs” is slated to air in October of this year.

Boices, are you disappointed?
