Jung Yun-ho heads to Joseon


Jung Yun-ho

Jung Yun-ho of the pioneer K-pop band TVXQ will travel to the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910) in the upcoming MBC historical drama “Night Shift of the Joseon Police” (working title), joining actor Jung Il-woo of “Unstoppable High Kick” (2005).

As the project is in its infancy, detailed information about the story hasn’t been revealed yet. But according to local media reports, Jung will play a Joseon officer, a night patrolman who works to thwart evil spirits from entering the town between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m.

Some media analysts noted that “Night Shift” is a trump card being used to replace the “Dae Jang-geum” sequel, which fell to pieces after Lee Young-ae refused to join the cast last week, after months of deliberating.

Fans seem pleased about Jung’s decision because he’ll get to act for the first time as a figure from Joseon. The singer launched his acting career through the 2009 drama “Heading to the Ground.”

“Night Shift” will air in July as soon as the series “Triangle,” starring Jung’s former group member Kim Jae-joong, wraps up.
