[No Limit], a story about a talented but misfortunate soccer player will air on September 9th at 9:55pm.
Bong-gun, a soccer player with great potential, wants to become a member of the national soccer team. As he works towards his goal, he meets Hae-bin, an attractive and independent rookie sports agent who ends up bickering with him all the time. With Seung-woo, an elite attorney, as his arch-enemy, Bong-gun's journey towards love and success is rough. To make matters more complicated, it turns out that Yeon-lee, Bong-gun's childhood friend and the soccer team nutritionist, has a secret crush on him.
This drama is already gathering much attention because it stars U-Know, a member of TVXQ (Korean name, Dong Bang Shin Gi), Korea's top boy band with over 800 thousand official fans. U-Know will play the role of Bong-gun and make his debut as an actor. U-Know says he can relate to Bong-gun's situation because acting is to him, what soccer is to Bong-gun. He is very enthusiastic about his participation in this show.
Koh Ara, star of and recipient of the PaekSang Arts Awards' Best New TV Actress Award plays the role of the charming sports agent. Other casts include Lee Sang-Yoon for the evil attorney and Lee Yoon-ji for the soccer team nutritionist.
