TVXQ Jaejoong declines IRIS offer?

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.
