  • The Golden Age of ‘Acting Idol’
  • [2014-01-13]



  •  In the past, there were a lot of idol stars, without verifiying their acting ability, were on TV dramas just for its success. But, nowadays, there are a number of so-called ‘acting idols’ and now it becomes popular to have one in dramas.

     
    There are some actors who used to be idols and has been a laughing stock because of his/her poor acting. Yet, successfully ‘idol-turned-actors’ are coming out these days and overcome criticism. Many of them are called ‘acting idols’ because they are good at acting.
     
    We have Hwang Jeong-eum(drama ‘Secret Love’) with remarkable tearful acting, Yoona, is overcoming age gap for her romance(drama ‘Prime Minister & I’), and IU has been in two drama as a lead(drama ‘You are the Best’ and ‘Bel Ami’).
     
    They are not just for the success of drama, but for leading the entire story of drama. Just like other actors/actresses, idols are verifying their action ability through strict auditions.The reason is idols get intensive acting lessons with vocal/dance training at their agencies.
     
    Ha Jae-geun who is the public culture critic explained idol trend as “From the beginning, they get lessons to be singers, idols get acting training as well, so they can be on TV dramas as a prepared actor/actress.”   
     
    Also, music consumption is going digital, which makes singers life shorter, and it leads idol stars to find their new ways as acting can be another factor of this trend.
