16/04 – [EDITORIAL] Which Idols Made The Best Transition To Acting Roles?
Shared by: JYJ3 + Geministar06
It’s rare these days for a drama not to have an idol in at least a small supporting role or appearing in a cameo. But which idols would you say has already made the most successful transition from singing to acting?
Idols who are now thought of as actors include Kim Hyun Joong, Ok Taecyeon, Chansung, Suzy Bae, IU, and Kim Jaejoong. Sometimes the transition is almost seamless but occasionally the idols face daunting criticism.
In terms of the smoothest transition, and the level of acclaim, “Three Days” star Park Yoochun probably should take top honors.
With his very first drama, “Sungkyunkwan Scandal,” he earned rave reviews. And by his second drama, he was sure acting was going to work out.
“Acting is very interesting,” he said. “Through Rooftop Prince I was happy to learn how interesting it could be to express the character.”
But he was not sure he was a good actor, modestly saying it was just that he was expressive and knew how to cry. And that he was observant of other people’s actions. But that is exactly what acting is about.
Now that he has starred in several dramas, he can be pretty confident that he had talent.
