Singer and actress Yoona shared her determination in being an ‘acting-dol’.
She appeared at a press conference that took place on the location for KBS 2TV’s ‘The Prime Minister and Me’ in Goyang City on the 23rd and said “There is an increase of idols that are acting” and “I will work on my competitiveness.”
Yoona said “I want to be on stage when I act and I want to act when I am stage. This feeling continues” and she said that switching from acting and singing gives her energy.
When talking about the increase of ‘acting-dols’ she said “There were not a lot of (acting-dols) before so there was a lot of pressure going into acting” and “There are so many talented people these days. They are so good that you think they are rookie actors” and showed how she was impressed with them. She also said “The pressure is lessened since the atmosphere is one where people are used to idols but that means that there is that much more competitiveness. I need my own uniqueness.”
Actor Lee Bumsoo, who stars in the drama as well, stated “Whether it is an idol or a rookie actor, I wish that people would think of acting lightly” and “Yoona is sincere and sensible. She is skilled in taking the atmosphere around her” and showed her praise.
