Idols reading drama scripts…Top, Kim Hyunjoong acting.

Idol groups going into acting is becoming the trend.

Singers doing both music and acting is not new anymore. Recently idol group members are coming out in dramas.

The drama ‘King of Study’ is going to air after SBS Tazza and members of 2AM, 2PM, SHINee are possible candidates for the main characters. This drama is about 5 highschool students and things that happen to them.

A SBS Drama staff said “Only an actor who is an actual student can express a student’s character well. We were looking for a new face and thought of idol group members. Groups these days get training in acting before they debut so we are not worried about their acting skill. ”

Besides them Big Bang’s Top and SS501’s Kim HyunJoong is appearing in a drama soon. Top debuted in KBS 2TV I am Sam last year and in the drama ‘Iris’ with Lee ByungHun he is playing a killer. Kim Hyunjoong was casted as Rui for KBS2TV ‘Meteor Garden/Hana Yori Dango’ which will air in December. Kim Hyunjoong is just waiting to film the drama.

Besides them SNSD’s Yoona, Super Junior’s Kim Heechul, Kim Kibum, Choi Siwon, Shindong etc…came out in SBS Golden Bride, MBC Choonja’s Happy Events, KBS2TV Precious Family and ‘Single Papa is Dating.’

Regarding the increase of idol stars going into acting, a PD said “When looking at them on the acting side they are on the same level as new actors. And since they are already loved by the public they will help the drama.”
