Former EXO members Kris (Wu Yifan) and Luhan are likely to guest star in an upcoming athletic show produced by popular Chinese cable network Dragon TV.

The firm released a list of popular Asian celebrities set to appear in the program on WE Chat and it includes ex-Girls' Generation member Jessica Jung and Hong Kong singer Joey Yung.

Although Yung confirmed his role in the upcoming show, ex K-Pop boy band members and their representatives are tight-lipped about it.

The program will reportedly feature six celebs as captains of Basketball, Badminton, Soccer as well as Swimming and focus on various challenges faced by them. The yet-to-be-named athletic show is set to air 12 episodes in the months of July, August and September, according to Koreaboo.

It has been nearly one year since former EXO K member Kris left South Korean record label SM Entertainment and almost six months of ex K Pop boy band member Luhan's exit, but they are yet to settle their contract nullification case.

Even in the midst of this legal battle, the young stars are receiving some of the best opportunities from the entertainment world. While Kris has few films and advertisement offers in hand, Luhan will reportedly appear on an upcoming Hollywood movie along with a star-studded cast list.

The film, titled "The Great Wall", will be produced by popular Chinese director Zhang Yimou and distributed by Universal Pictures. The storyline of the movie will revolve around a group of European mercenaries, who will be attacked by mythical beasts while trying to steal the recipe for gunpowder.
