Posted: 05 Nov 2012 07:55 AM PST



Dongho, who plays the role of "Johan" in "Don't Cry Mommy", will be unable to participate in the promotional period for his first leading role. Due to his tight schedule, including a concert and fan meeting, in South America, Peru, he had to make the tough call of dropping out of promotional activities for the film.

Dongho received much interest after the film played at the open cinema of the Busan International Film Festival and was expected to promote the film in November.

However because of U-KISS's ever-changing schedule abroad, it seems that it will be difficult for Dongho to proceed in film promotions as planned. U-KISS has planned to visit Peru, Malaysia, Singapore and with Japanese promotions following after, as their new single will be released sometime in December.

A representative of Dongho's agency has stated, "As it is Dongho's very first leading role in a movie, he feels very sorry for not being able to promote alongside his co-stars. He wishes all the best for the film".

The film will be released on November 22.

Posted: 05 Nov 2012 12:30 AM PST



Kpopstar's Lee Ha Yi expressed her contradicting feeling about how TOP's schedule seems not in sync with hers

However Lee Ha Yi is more relieved about it, she said :" I'm disappointed but I think it would be better not to bump into him cause I would be too nervous to see him in person"

Lee Ha Yi made her debut on Inkigayo on November 4th. Her debut single "1.2.3.4" is still topping many online music charts at the moment.
