Girls’ Generation members Jessica and Yuri are busy studying up on how to become a great actress.
The two girls will be trying their hand at acting for the very first time, and have been receiving acting guidance and advice from a veteran actor.
A representative from their agency SM Entertainment remarked, “An experienced veteran is teaching the girls the very basics of acting every rookie should know – character analysis, vocalization, and breathing. The other singers trying their hand at acting also learn the basics, and Jessica and Yuri are no exception. The girls are working hard as to not disappoint their fans.”
Girls’ Generation promotions for their third full-length album came to a close in December of 2011, and the girls will be focusing on individual promotions for the beginning of 2012, giving Jessica and Yuri a chance to develop themselves as actresses.
Yuri has been cast as the female lead ‘Anna’ in the new SBS drama, ‘Fashion King‘ due to air in March, while fellow member Jessica has also been cast as actor Lee Dong Wook‘s past lover in KBS 2TV‘s ‘Violent Romance‘ which is scheduled to air sometime this April.
It’s the current trend in the entertainment industry for idol singers to make their debut on the small-screen, and Jessica and Yuri are jumping on the same bandwagon. As soon as the news of the girls spread, people in the industry have been showing their interest and are curious to see how the girls will perform.
Drama staff members themselves also have high expectations. According to ‘Fashion King’ outsourcing production company ‘Lee Kwan Hee Productions‘, Yuri proved that she was more than capable of displaying various emotions on cue, and they’re not the least bit worried about her, despite Yuri being a rookie actress.
