Eunjung oppar confirmed for new drama "Taking Over"

T-ara's Eunjung will take on the challenge of an actress once again.

Eunjung was cast as the young version of Chae Sira in the jTBC drama "Taking Over". Eunjung has already appeared in the KBS2 drama "Dream High" and the movie "White: Curse of the Melody" earlier this year. She's validated her acting skills through several dramas when she was younger and is now on to taking bigger roles, which has created high expectations for her acting.

Eunjung said, "When I first read the 'Taking Over' plot, I thought it was interesting and full of tension and something I would like to try out."

"Taking Over" is a 50-episode series about the struggles of three women and the ambition of becoming a queen, starting with the 5th generation and ending with the 10th generation. Chae Sira and Kim Misuk will also star in the drama while Lee Taegon will be the PD in charge. The first broadcast is scheduled for December.

the only thing that bothers me is that it's a cable drama so it might not gain as much recognition than the ones shown on the bigger networks ._.

I like her short hair more. when she puts extensions in her hair looks weird.

I am not feeling these historical drams they are giving her. This girl is a *S*T*A*R*, she deserves better stuff tbqh.
strawberry_efeu 9th-Oct-2011 05:43 am (UTC)
Historical dramas are super popular in Korea though.

mentality34 9th-Oct-2011 06:18 am (UTC)
sageuks ARE the better stuff in korea. would you rather she do idol dramas like dream high?
my_car_is_prada 9th-Oct-2011 06:50 am (UTC)
oohh garl, in that case she can get that cash and the fame. I am happy for her. But tbqh, I want her in something that I will actually watch, so yeah, something like Dream High would be great.

mentality34 9th-Oct-2011 09:03 am (UTC)
lol i LOVED her in dream high, she was so good omg. i need her in another role like that cause her angry/emotional scenes were fdajf;dj!
my_car_is_prada 9th-Oct-2011 05:49 pm (UTC)
Oooh yes! You understand me. I love Eunjung's fierceness. She gave me goosebumps during her emotional scenes. So beautiful!

Sageuks get the better ratings most of the time, though. They cater to a wider audience, too, because EVERYONE watches them, so it's really good exposure for a young actors and actresses to be in them.
my_car_is_prada 9th-Oct-2011 05:51 pm (UTC)
I didn't realize so many people watch it. That's SO good for her then, she deserves the recognition.

my_car_is_prada 9th-Oct-2011 06:51 am (UTC)

hellafun 9th-Oct-2011 06:53 am (UTC)

threebits 9th-Oct-2011 06:57 am (UTC)
as long as it's not the doe-eyed dumb naive female character I'd be happy tbh
lilsparky67 9th-Oct-2011 07:12 am (UTC)
She could be a side character for about 3-5 episodes of IRIS.

Something along the lines of a rogue leader who comes to wreak havoc against the secret service. In this case, maybe similar to TOP.

Although, she has this mysterious guideline to her and edgy attitude. It shows how chic and badass she can be.

fallingstarryuu 9th-Oct-2011 10:32 am (UTC)
oh damn 50 episodes!?!?

i hope she'll be able to get some rest omg, her schedule has been super packed
threebits 9th-Oct-2011 02:05 pm (UTC)
she won't really be on for the whole 50 of them though as she's just playing the younger role of the lead actress
