[News] Which idol did not go through a ‘foot acting’ debate?

KBS drama ‘Sung Gyun Gwan Scandal’ became a hot topic as idol group DBSK Micky Yoochun’s debut into acting.

He became the center of attention for his role as the lead, Lee Sun Joon, and many were interested to see what kind of acting he would show.

But despite this kind of burden, Micky Yoochun digested his aloof character that has wealth, looks, and intelligence with his own unique color. Not only did he avoid going through a ‘foot acting’ critique, but he is also flawlessly performing in an old-time drama, in which delivering the lines is known to be difficult.

As idol stars are beginning to transform into actors, critiques of their acting ability are hot on their trails. But the number of idols who, like Micky Yoochun, are taking the high road with their surprising acting ability is far from few.

The hit drama ‘Cinderella’s Sister’ from the beginning of this year was a debut project for another idol star. And that is 2PM’s Ok Taecyeon.

Though his role was small compared to that of his co-stars Moon Geun Young, Chun Jung Myoung, and Seo Woo, he showed great potential as an actor by taking on the Kyung Sang Do dialect, which even seasoned actors have a hard time doing, and digesting the tender character of Jung Woo.

Big Bang’s TOP/Choi Seung Hyun, who made his acting debut in 2007 in the drama ‘I Am Sam,’ took on the challenge of big screen acting for the first time through Into the Gunfire. Choi Seung Hyun, who was given the role of rebellious Chae Mu Shin in ‘I Am Sam,’ made a name for himself with his forceful gaze. In the movie Into the Gunfire, he displayed a force that was not pushed aside by acting veterans Cha Seung Won, Kim Seung Woo, and Kwon Sang Woo, and has come up as the star to watch at this year’s Chung Mu Ro film festival.

As fans or viewers, it is no doubt welcome news to hear that talented idol stars are venturing out not only in singing but also in acting. But we anticipate more idol stars that will land on the path of acting through much preparation and deliberate decision-making, and thus will not get caught up in ‘foot acting’ critiques.
