[NEWS] Jang Hyunseung gains interest in acting because of 'The Greatest Love'?

Jang Hyunseung, a member from the idol group BEAST, had revealed his greed for acting.

On the 17th, in a hotel restaurant located in Seoul Yeoido, the 6 members of BEAST met up with enews and discussed their thoughts about finishing their promotions for the first official album, ‘Fiction and Fact’ and plans for the future. During the interview, member Jang Hyunseung stated, “Recently I had become interested in acting,” revealing his transformation into an “acting-idol.”

Jang Hyunseung commented, “I was not triggered to take on acting by Yoon Doojoon, who had attempted acting through a sitcom. Even before debut I showed interests in acting. However, after debut, I had no time to even thinking about acting.” He added laughing, “Recently I developed this greed to take on acting, and I had even told my management about these thoughts on the 16th.

According to him, one of the reasons that made him suddenly interested in acting was through the MBC drama ‘The Greatest Love’ starring Cha Seungwon and Gong Hyojin.

Jang Hyunseung said, “’The Greatest Love’ was the first drama that all of BEAST watched together. I think this drama definitely played a role in making me interested in acting again. I want to play the role of a character that has no manners and is very 4D. For example, I would want to try a male character version of Anna Jo (Han Yeseul) from the MBC drama ‘Couple or Trouble’.”

Meanwhile BEAST will be ending their promotions for their first official album ‘Fiction and Fact’ on SBS ‘Inkigayo’ on the 19th. They had successfully won the Triple Crown on Mnet ‘M Countdown’ and KBS ‘Music Bank’ in addition to the high ranks on the music charts.

BEAST will be heading for Japan on the 20th and plans to promote their Japanese version of ‘Bad Girl’.
