With domestic promotions for “The Boys” all wrapped up, Girls’ Generation’s time is now dedicated to individual activities.
In the past, idols and artists frequently took breaks in between promotions. However, in today’s music industry, the line between rest and activities is being blurred. Popular singers these days are showing their faces through individual performances and overseas promotions, even if they are not promoting in Korea.
Girls’ Generation are considered the leaders of the global K-Pop phenomenon, and they certainly don’t stay quiet for long.
It’s Time to Become Acting-dols – Yuri, Sooyoung and Yoona
Girls’ Generation’s tall members Yuri, Sooyoung and Yoona were the first to become actresses through dramas.
Yoona, who became the first member of Girls’ Generation to act in a drama when she starred in “You Are My Destiny” in 2008, will now act in KBS 2TV’s “Love Rain” with Jang Geunsuk. After a preview of “Love Rain” was revealed, many people began paying attention to Yoona’s fresh, pure, and college-like appearance.
Yuri and Sooyoung, who both appeared in the sitcom “Unstoppable Marriage”, will be making the leap and debuting as full-scale actresses alongside Yoona. Yuri will be appearing in the Monday and Tuesday drama “Fashion King”, playing the role of the chic and cold Choi Anna.
Temporarily shedding her stage name “Sooyoung of Girls’ Generation”, Sooyoung will be making her first acting attempt as “Choi Sooyoung”. She will be starring in the drama “The 3rd Hospital”, which is scheduled to broadcast on tvN this coming July. Though Sooyoung had a small role in the film “Hello Schoolgirl” in 2008 that officially started her feature film career, “The 3rd Hospital” marks the start of her drama career. In “The 3rd Hospital”, Sooyoung will be playing the role of Uijin, a violist, and is expected to be involved in a romantic storyline with fellow stars Kim Seungwoo, Oh Jiho and Kim Minjeong
