Korean idol star Lee Joon of group MBLAQ has put off starring in his second-ever movie after his debut movie “Rough Play.”

An official with Lee Joon’s agency J.Tune Camp told TenAsia on Monday that the singer had step off from upcoming Korean movie, tentatively titled “Botox,” due to the delay of its filming which was originally set to last month.

The official added that Lee Joon is prepping up for a new record of MBLAQ, set to roll out next January, as the follow up to their fifth mini-album “Sexy Beat” released this June.

The 26-year-old star has also received scenarios of renowned directors Ryu Seung-wan’s upcoming film “Veteran” and Lim Sang-soo’s “No Today for Us” (both translated titles), both of which have possibilities of Lee’s next film project.

Opposite to actress Park Jin-hee, Lee was supposed to take on 21-year-old boy named Gun-ni, who falls in love with 42-year-old would-be writer named Young-sook in “Botox.”
