DIA’s Jung Chaeyeon will be playing a leading television drama role for the first time!
On June 12, her agency MBK Entertainment confirmed, “Jung Chaeyeon is starring as the lead of ‘to.Jenny.'”
“to.Jenny” is a music drama that combines the heart-fluttering emotions of first love together with indie music.
The drama is about a girl who fights through her difficult situation to run towards her dreams and a guy who expresses his one-sided love for her through singing.
Rookie actor Kim Sung Chul is set to play the male lead. He first debuted as a musical actor and recently gained popularity with his appearance on “Prison Playbook.”
He commented, “I liked the character Jung Min showing the pureness of first love, and it touched me more because it is a drama mingled together with music. I think viewers will be able to see different charms of me, so I am looking forward to it. I will work hard.”
Jung Chaeyeon shared, “It is exciting and meaningful as it is my first leading role. When it was confirmed, I felt even more pressure as it is a music drama. I am still lacking a lot, so I feel that I have to work even harder and think of it as another challenge. I thank the ‘to.Jenny’ production team for casting me although I am lacking. I will work to impress the viewers.”
“to.Jenny” is set to premiere on July 10 at 11 p.m. KST.
