At the April 15 press conference for the upcoming tvN drama, “She is Wow,” B1A4’s leader Jinyoung discussed his feelings on joining the rank of idol actors.

Jinyoung stated, “I saw a lot of sincerity in senior Park Yoochun’s acting. I think he acts really well.” He also complimented Big Bang‘s T.O.P by saying, “Senior T.O.P was also good in the movie ‘Into the Fire’. His ability to act with his eyes was really awesome.” He named the two idol actors as roles models, saying, “I am practicing hard to be like them.”

He also mentioned his fellow B1A4 members at the press conference. “I am learning a lot from Shinwoo and Sandeul, who already have acting experience. I am also learning a lot while filming.”

Jinyoung also revealed that he long dreamed of becoming an actor. He said, “I originally wanted to be a singer and an actor. I traveled all the way from my hometown of Chung-ju to Seoul to take acting classes.” He continued, “Luckily, a good project came in. I am excited and happy thinking this might be a step toward another lifetime chance.”

He will play the character of Gong Min Kyu, the son of the lead couple, who is a good-looking, troublesome child with an aggressive attitude. “She is Wow” will premier April 18 on tvN.
