Boy band BEAST member Lee Gi-kwang has gone back on his decision to appear in a new drama, his agency said on Wednesday.

Lee had been set to play a rock band leader/idol star in SBS’s upcoming Monday-Tuesday series tentatively named “God’s Gift.”

However, an official with CUBE Entertainment told TenAsia over the phone, “Lee will not be able to appear in the show and it was an inevitable choice because he’s too busy with his other activities in Korea and overseas.”

This was not going to be his first time acting – he made his acting debut through MBC’s hit sitcom “High Kick” in 2009 and has appeared in a couple of dramas since.

In the meantime, “God’s Gift” starring top Korean actors Jo Seung-woo and Lee Bo-young, is set to premiere after current series “One Warm Word” ends its run in February.

The upcoming show will be about a mother, who has lost her child, protecting that child after going back two weeks in time.
