[10.09.11] Eric in discussions for drama comeback

Singer/actor Eric will be marking his return with a primetime drama at the end of the year. Currently serving as a public service officer, Eric will be discharged from military service on 22 October, and prior to his discharge he has already been receiving love calls from drama productions. According to an insider, Eric has received 7-8 offers from drama productions with broadcast dates ranging from the end of this year to early next year, proving that his popularity from before his enlistment has remained fairly intact.

Among these drama productions, there are about two in particular with a greater chance of him appearing in. One of them is apparently a drama written by a popular writer, and has become a hot topic for discussion even before it’s aired. The insider said, “He’ll make a decision soon as to whether or not he will take up the role in the drama, as filming is scheduled to start upon his discharge. Eric may be able to greet the viewers in a role very well-suited to him by the end of November.”

Eric will resume acting activities as well as music activities upon his discharge. During this period of time while he has been serving his military duty, he has been working on materials for his album. As fellow Shinhwa members Lee Minwoo, Junjin, Kim Dongwan and Andy are still in military service now, group activities seem unlikely for now thus he has plans to work on his solo album first.

The insider elaborated, “He often meets up with the Shinhwa members to talk about his solo album and they talk a lot about Shinhwa as well. Eric has been rapping for Shinhwa, and his solo album will also have a hip-hop feel and a strong character to it.”

Prior to his enlistment in October 2008, Eric had established himself as an actor with dramas such as “Phoenix”, “Que Sera Sera” and “Super Rookie”.
