“Incidentally, up until now,” he commented, “every film or drama that I’ve been involved with has cast an idol member. I worked with Baro (B1A4) in the MBC drama ‘Angry Mom,’ and with Suho (EXO) in the movie ‘Glory Day.’ This time I was able to work with Jung Eun Ji (A Pink) and N (VIXX), who were especially passionate about acting.”
“I was so shocked by how hard they worked, it encouraged me to try harder as well. In N’s case, he would continue practicing even after filming was over.”
When asked which idol he’d like to act with once again, Ji Soo responded by saying that he’d like to act again with Suho.
“If had to pick one person, I’d have to pick Suho. While filming ‘Glory Day’ he was my closest friend, and he has similar thoughts towards acting as I do. Suho studied acting for a long time, and there’s a lot that I can learn from him. While working together, he taught me a lot not only about acting, but also on life. Everything I’ve learned from him has been extremely helpful.”
Ji Soo also voiced his opinion on industry prejudice toward idol acting. “To be honest, I also had prejudice against idol actors. However, after working with Suho, Baro, Jung Eun Ji, and the others, I can see that they work harder than anyone else. I no longer have prejudice toward them.”
Ji Soo recently wrapped up filming for “Sassy Go Go,” while the movie “Glory Day” premiered at the Busan International Film Festival in October 2015.
