Title: 맨땅에 헤딩 / Heading to the Ground
Genre: Sports, romance
Episodes: TBA
Broadcast network: MBC
Broadcast period: 2009-Sep-09 to TBA
Air time: Wednesday & Thursdays 21:55

The story line of the drama is about a poor soccer player by the name of Cha Bong-goon who doesn’t have much besides hope and a warm heart. The drama will draw out the success story of Cha Bong-goon who comes face to face with death three times and always lived a hard life, but finally gets a taste of victory when he becomes a national soccer player.


The role of Cha Bong-goon was originally going to be played by Kim Rae-won, but due to his schedule to enlist in the army, the role was offered to Yun-ho. Although Yun-ho wasn’t their first choice, the production team of the drama explained that they cast Yun-ho for the role of Cha Bong-goon because he lived a similar life as the character in order to get where he is today.



Just like Cha Bong-goon, we heard that Yun-ho surpassed all the hardships and didn’t deter from accomplishing his dreams. We didn’t see the top star of Asia in Yun-ho but the character Cha Bong-goon we were in search of.

Yun-ho also explained his excitement for being cast as the male lead for a drama stating,

I really like the character of Cha Bong-goon. While I was reading the script I felt excitement inside of me and I want to express this feeling through acting.




His love interest will be played by fellow SM artist, Go Ara (19). Her character is named Kang Hye Bin, and is the daughter of a professional team’s manager. However, Hye Bin hides her status and seeks to gain recognition in the male-dominated world of sports as an agent based on her own talent. She joins forces with Bong Gun after seeing his impressive volley shoot. Their feelings for each other grow even while bickering constantly. (KP’s note: Han Ga In was originally in discussions for this role.)

Lee Yoon Ji will play Bong Gun’s neighbour and long-time friend, Oh Yeon Yi. She is the nutritionist for the soccer team Bong Gun plays for. (KP’s note: Lee Da Hae was originally rumoured to be a contender for this role.)
A Korean drama wouldn’t be a Korean drama without a love square. Enter 28-year-old actor Lee Sang Yun (Lee Sang Yoon; I Love You, Don’t Cry) as a good-natured lawyer.
Heading on Bare Ground is expected to premiere on September 9, following MBC’s horror drama, Hon

The summary doesn't sound so interesting and since I'm not a DBSK fan, I won't tune it.

U-know Yunho, Ara, Lee Sang Yun Form Love Triangleknow

Jung Yun Ho, more commonly known as U-know Yunho of TVXQ, has signed on to his first lead drama role.

U-know Yunho, Ara, Lee Sang Yun


Heading on Bare Ground (맨땅에 헤딩) has cast 23-year-old U-know Yunho after negotiations with Kim Rae Won failed due to Kim’s upcoming military enlistment. U-know Yunho will play Cha Bong Gun, an athlete on a soccer farm team whose skills are lacking for his dream of making the national team. (News articles initially said entering English Premier League is his goal, but more recent reports are saying he wants to make it as a national representative.)

His love interest will be played by fellow SM artist, Go Ara (19). Her character is a beautiful sports agent. (KP’s note: Han Ga In was originally in discussions for this role. Lee Da Hae was also rumoured to be cast.)

Would a Korean drama be a Korean drama without a love rival? Of course not. Enter 28-year-old actor Lee Sang Yun (Lee Sang Yoon; I Love You, Don’t Cry) as a good-natured lawyer.

U-know Yunho stated regarding his first drama project, “The character Cha Bong Gun really appeals to me. My heart was deeply moved with rising emotions while reading the script. I want to express this feeling honestly with my acting.”
