Actress Kim Min-jung has withdrawn from playing her role opposite Hallyu star Lee Jun-ki in MBC TV series "Hero", a week before its premiere.
The 27-year-old actress had been set to play the lead female role in "Hero", but decided to pull out due to an arm injury which has made it impossible for her to participate in shoots, an official at broadcaster MBC said on Tuesday.
Kim had suffered the injury while shooting drama "Strike Love" in April which developed into a calcific tendinitis, a condition of calcium deposits within the rotator cuff tendons.
Her agency said the actress cannot move her arm properly due to the condition and will have to undergo continuous treatment and therapy. The injury had also kept the 27-year-old actress from attending a press conference for the drama two weeks ago.
"Hero", about a group of youngsters who rebel and fight against a corrupt society, is set to air starting November 11.
