2PM member Jinwoon and Secret member Sunhwa shared their opinions about idol group members in the acting business.
During the press conference on Thursday for their upcoming drama “Marriage over Love,” the two were asked what they thought about idol group members working as actors.
“Looking at other idol members who succeeded as actors, I get motivated to be good like them,” Jinwoon said. “I think they are changing negative perspectives of idols being actors.”
“When seeing other idols in the acting business, I dream of being like them as well. Also, it helps me to work hard to live up to the expectations from the fans and viewers,” Sunhwa said.
In the drama, Jinwoon plays Han Yeo-reum, a man who’s unsuitable for marriage, and Sunhwa plays Kang Sae-ah, a woman who doesn’t need to get married.
The upcoming drama is to be broadcast on tvN starting from July 4.
