Well they are already commenting on how idols think the natural progression of their career after singing is acting, despite the existence of rookie actors...

mte. I'm a little bit pessimistic about this one.

same but at least it's a side role on a cable network hopefully she's at least adequate lol. and her acting has to at least be better in Korean than in English and with a decent script and good direction
