Did TVXQ / DBSK / Tohoshinki’s Jaejoong decline an offer to join the roster of the hit drama IRIS? Apparently so, according to some rumored reports.
Jaejoong recently showed off his acting prowess in the telecinema project Heaven’s Postman and the people in charge of IRIS thought it would be a good idea to bring the top prince in Japan on board. The IRIS producers originally planned Jaejoong to appear in the final episode of season 1 (episode 20) and then have him as a full time member for Season 2.
However, for undisclosed reasons Jaejoong declined on the offer. I’m guessing it’s because he’s going to be very busy with his Japanese promotions with his TVXQ mates. Unfortunately, joining Jaejoong in declining a chance to appear on season 2 is the main star of IRIS Lee Byung Hun as a second season of IRIS would conflict with his G.I. Joe 2 filming schedule. Even though Lee Byung Hun is reportedly earning near $100,000 per episode of IRIS, Hollywood has some deep pockets. It’s pretty sad news for me personally… because to me, Lee Byung Hun is basically the whole show.
It’s pretty cool that Jaejoong was offered the role, I wonder what type of role he would’ve played? Probably some rogue assassin, something similar to T.O.P (Vick) of Big Bang. But if I were Jaejoong I would watch my back, just for declining the offer, the NSS should come hunting for him… he should ask Lee Byung Hun for tips, because he’s good at avoiding them.

IRIS 아이리스 (A-i-ri-seu)
National Security System (NSS) Top 707 agents Hyun-jun and Sa-woo are blood brothers who swore to trust each other and unchanging friendship for life. They meet agent Seung-hee there and both fall in love with her. But Hyun-jun and Seung-hee become close and Sa-woo fights to hide his feelings for Seung-hee. One day, they are immediately sent on a mission to Hungary. When they successfully finish off their job with immaculate teamwork and are celebrating it, a message arrives to Hyun-jun asking him to meet in secret.
Baek-san, an executive of NSS who had been waiting for Hyun-jun orders a solo mission. Despite the tight protection of bodyguards, Hyun-jun succeeds his mission. But before escaping, Hyun-jun gets wounded by his targets’ head security bodyguards, and later he is shockingly betrayed by his most trusted friend, Sa-woo. Hyun-jun tries to escape with Seung-hee’s help, but he ends up losing Seung-hee. And his car also explodes; they are both misled into thinking that the other had died. Hyun-jun gets saved by an unidentifiable ‘Voice’ and learns the secret identity of a group called, ‘Iris’.
1 year later, with the two Koreas about to be reunified, Hyun-jun makes his return. After spending a nightmarish life of being betrayed and losing everything, Hyun-jun returns to get revenge on those who threw him into the living hell. With the help of the President, Hyun-jun returns to his post in the NSS. Starting a fight against ‘Iris’, the secret society that tries to interfere with reunification, Hyun-jun now puts everything on the line for the battle of his life.
i thought such a namja show would ask Yunho to be in it instead of Jaejoong...
i was wrong i guess...
i underestimated my joongie...
but no matter what happens...
u will ALWAYS be my HERO...
언제나 비가와도 칠흙같이 캄캄한 어둠이 와도...
그대 곁에서 기다릴께 ...
Nothing better than that...
[Color - Melody & Harmony]
For someone’s sake
we are here,
Although we can only achieve small things,
Even just for 1 second,
We still want to stop all the tears in this world,
And turn them all into smiles
My music is my life
For you, for your smile...
