2nd Generation Idols Like Park Yooochun · Kim Hyun Joong · Choikang Changmin Are Now Confirmed As Acting-idols
Idols who made their debut in the mid to late 2000s are all successively becoming actors.
Members of groups such as TVXQ, JYJ and SS501, who have shaken the world with ‘music’ for over a decade, are now catching the eyes of audiences as actors.
The debut of an acting-idol is not something that happens overnight. Members of TVXQ, JYJ and SS501 who competed with their singing, dancing and looks around 5-6 years ago, have now mostly transformed into actors, and are attracting the attention of people through their friendly competition.
Representative examples of such members are JYJ’s Park Yoochun and SS501′s Kim Hyun Joong. Park Yoochun made his debut as an actor in 2010 via the drama “Sungkyunkwan Scandal, and won the KBS Drama Awards Newcomer Award with this production. He later acted in the drama “Miss Ripley”, and will be appearing in SBS’s new Wednesday-Thursday drama “Attic Prince” this March.
JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong also acted in the drama “Protect The Boss” last year, while Kim Junsu demonstrated both his acting and singing abilities while acting in the musicals “Mozart!” and “Elisabeth”.
Also, after starting off with “Heading To The Ground” in 2009, U-Know Yunho then acted in promotional video “HARU” and guest starred in “Poseidon”, (while) Choikang Changmin, who made his (acting) debut with “Paradise Ranch”, will be making his debut on the big screens in Japan via “Soar With The Gold”.
