More often than not, we see K-Pop stars advancing into the world of cinema and television soaps as their career grows. It’s mostly the visuals in these groups who go on to become successful actors. Right from their trainee years, they are given lessons not only on singing, dancing and carrying themselves in public, but also acting. All of this of course, largely depends on whether they actually want to act in the first place. This is however not an issue in most cases as these K-Pop stars already pursue several courses and degrees in this field. In today’s article, we shall focus on the latest news about Girls Generation’s YoonA To Join Lee Jong Suk In A New K-Drama.
