A Pink’s Eunji Says She’s No IU For “Trot Lovers”

A Pink’s Jung Eunji has released a statement regarding her competition with fellow singer and actress IU for the lead role in KBS 2TV’s new drama “Trot Lovers.” In response to comparisons between the two, Eunji said “IU is my friend and we are keeping in touch separately. IU has her strengths and I have mine; there is no overlap between us.”

She also stated that “Rather focusing on the fact that I am playing the lead, I simply want to perform well so that I can please the fans of this drama.”

“Trot Lovers” explores the developing romance between two opposite individuals: Popular singer Jang Joon Hyun (Ji Hyun Woo) and impoverished Choi Choon Hee (Jung Eunji), who loves trot music but does not dream of becoming a singer. The first episode will be broadcast at 10 PM on June 23, taking over the time slot previously occupied by “Big Man.”
