A Pink’s Jung Eun Ji to Play Main Character on KBS Drama “Trot Lovers”
A Pink star Jung Eun Ji is the latest star to be confirmed as a cast member of upcoming KBS drama mini-series “Trot Lovers.”
Although Jung Eun Ji has appeared in dramas before, most notably as part of tvN’s “Reply 1997,” “Trot Lovers” will mark a welcome return to the small screen for the singer, whose group is currently enjoying success with the song “Mr. Chu.” She spoke about the new drama, telling the media,“It has been quite a while since I last acted. It made me quite apprehensive at first, but I am going to put a lot of effort into this project.”
Eunji will play the role of Choi Choon Hee, a girl whose mother was a trot singer. She too dreams of becoming a famous singer. Although she is blessed with enormous vocal talent, her family is poor, and she has to work hard in menial jobs in order to support her father and younger brother.
Also confirmed to star in “Trot Lovers” are actors Shin Sung Rok and Ji Hyun Woo.
The new series will begin airing on KBS once “Big Man” draws to a close.
