101229 TVXQ Max Changmin to appear new SBS drama next year

Korean idol Max Changmin of duo TVXQ will be playing one of the male leads in an upcoming SBS drama, according show’s producer Samhwa Networks on Wednesday.

Samhwa announced in a press release that Changmin was chosen to play the role Han Dong-joo, the son of a conglomerate who falls in love with a prodigy veterinarian named Lee Da-ji (played by Lee Yeon-hee) in the new drama titled “Paradise Farm,” which will premiere on January 24 next year.

“Paradise Farm,” helmed by Kim Chul-kyu and shot in Australia and Jeju Island, tells the story of a couple who gets married at the young age of 19 and then gets a divorce.

The show will take over the Monday and Tuesday timeslot after current series “It’s Ok, Daddy” finishes its run.

Max Changmin made his debut in the five-member boy band TVXQ, composed of other members Xiah Junsu, Hero Jaejun, Micky Yuchun and U-Know Yunho, in 2004.

However, after disputing with agency SM Entertainment over the unfairness of their 13-year exclusive contract, Jaejung, Yuchun and Junsu halted their activities as TVXQ and instead formed trio JYJ.

Max Changmin and U-know Yunho will make their comeback with the release of their special edition new album titled “Keep Your Head Down” on January 5 while the regular version will hit stores a week later.

The two recently celebrated their seventh year in the music industry, thanking and wishing their fans the best for the rest of the year.

I like Changmin’s hair! He looks good on it! And it looks like “Why (Keep your head down)” is another SMP song with powerful dance choreography. But seriously, the voice saying “keep your head down” in the video is quite scary! LOL.
