Soyou To Take On 1st Acting Role In Upcoming KBS Drama Special
Soyou will be venturing into acting for the very first time!
On November 14, Starship Entertainment announced, “Soyou will be appearing in the KBS drama special ‘Clean and Polish,’ which will air on November 15. She is taking on the challenge of acting for the first time.”
The agency added, “Please show a lot of support and anticipation for this new side of Soyou.”
“Clean and Polish,” the eighth drama aired as part of KBS Drama Special 2019, will tell the story of an owner and an employee of a cleaning services company. While cleaning up a crime scene on the job, they wind up uncovering the truth behind an incident that was nearly swept under the rug.
Soyou will appear in the drama as Chun Ji Hee, a police officer who is also the longtime best friend of the female protagonist Anna (played by Na Hye Mi). As a cop with a strong sense of duty, Chun Ji Hee is both idealistic and tough at the same time.
In an official statement released through Starship Entertainment, Soyou remarked, “I’m incredibly honored by this great opportunity to join the long-beloved KBS Drama Special’s special installment ‘Clean and Polish.’ Because it was my first time acting, I was very nervous and worried, but because [my character] Chun Ji Hee had a lot of similarities to my real-life personality, I was able to relate to the character a lot while filming.”
Soyou went on, “In order to help viewers become more fully immersed in the drama, I worked really hard to analyze how I could mesh well with my character. Although my skills are lacking, I worked really hard to prepare for ‘Clean and Polish,’ and I ask that you show a lot of interest and tune in.”
