KARA’s Han Seung Yeon recently talked about the advantages and disadvantages of being an idol-actor.
On February 14, Han Seung Yeon attended the press conference for SBS Plus mini drama series, “Women, Comics, and Shoes” along with fellow actors Hong Jong Hyun, Jung Ga Eun, and Yoon Jong Hoon at the Sapphire Ballroom in Lotte Hotel World.
During the Q&A portion of the press conference, Han Seung Yeon opened up about her experiences as an idol-actor. “I think one advantage of being an idol-actor is that you have a lot of experience standing in front of the cameras, so it’s easier to adapt. There other countless difficulties that come with being an idol-actor, but I think one of them would definitely be the added burden of being able to get the [audience’s] feedback right away,” she said.
“However, because of that I’m trying harder than ever. Since many people understand those concerns, I’ve put my heart and soul into everything. I hope people view my acting positively,” she added.
“Women, Comics and Shoes” is a 10-episode manhwa adaptation that will air on February 24 through SBS Plus. The trailer and stills from the “Women, Comics and Shoes” have also been released.
