Written By Unknown on Monday, September 23, 2013 | 2:07 AM

Only the most talented idols can both sing AND act, such as Miss A’s Suzy, ZE:A’s Im Siwan, BoA, and BEAST’s Yong Junhyung.

In the entertainment industry, it’s hard to succeed in any one aspect, whether it be singing or acting. However, there are some idols that have shown extraordinary talent in both industries. These include Miss A’s Suzy, ZE:A’s Im Siwan, BoA, and BEAST’s Yong Junhyung.

Singing Suzy vs Acting Suzy – She Shines Brighter While Acting~

Miss A debuted in 2010 with their single album Bad But Good, and were promising prospects to follow in JYP Entertainment’s Wonder Girls’ footsteps. Their title song “Bad Girl Good Girl” received a lot of attention, and Miss A became a well-known girl group. Even among the group, the youngest member Suzy stood out as a cutie pie with milky white skin, and she soon came to try her hand at acting.

Suzy tried acting for the first time in 2010 with a role in KBS 2TV’s “Dream High.” However, in the beginning there were a lot of difficult times for Suzy. She played the role of Go Hyemi, whose dream was to become a singer, but Suzy’s acting skills were a little awkward, which resulted in a controversy. “Dream High” succeeded as the actors learned to work in harmony with one another. The actors’ collaborative work resulted in an end-product that wasn’t bad. Suzy then went on to star in KBS 2TV’s drama “Big,” and finally made a name for herself as an actress with her role in “Architecture 101.” She even showed great talent with her first try at historical drama as Dam Yeo Wool in MBC’s drama “Gu Family Book.”

Singing BoA vs Acting BoA – Really Great Acting for a First!

BoA debuted in 2000 as the youngest female solo artist. She received a lot of love with her singing and extraordinary dancing skills. She then went to Japan to increase her skills and experience, and rose to the top as Korea’s matchless solo artist. BoA already has 14 years of singing experience under her belt, and has even moved on to become a producer for SM Entertainment, as seen on SBS “K-pop Star.”

BoA transitioned into an actress with her first role in the movie “Make Your Move 3D” last year. After this dance film, BoA immersed herself in acting with KBS 2TV’s drama “Looking Forward to Romance.” Although there was speculation as to whether this singer could become a successful actress, she broke through all those barriers and received a lot of love from the public for her natural and stable acting skills.

Singing Im Siwan vs Acting Im Siwan – Popularity Born Through Acting

ZE:A debuted in 2010. Even before their debut, ZE:A revealed themselves as trainees on various TV shows and gained some fans, but they didn’t receive as much attention as expected. The group started to gain a little more interest through their member Hwang Kwanghee, but it wasn’t significant. Just recently, ZE:A started to gain love through their individual activities as they appeared more frequently on television.

Im Siwan appeared in MBC’s drama “Moon Embracing the Sun” as the role of Huyeom. However, it wasn’t until later that people started to realize he was a member of ZE:A. The public came to know Im Siwan first as an actor. He appeared in KBS 2TV “Man from the Equator,” and more recently, starred in “Looking Forward to Romance” with BoA, which is an ongoing drama. He is better known as an acting idol now.

Singing Yong Junhyung vs Acting Yong Junhyung – For Now, His Singing Colors Are Brighter

Yong Junhyung, who debuted with the group BEAST in 2009, is in charge of the group’s musical color and concept. He helps produce BEAST’s albums, and even made a title song, revealing him to be a talented artist. Yong Junhyung himself wrote and composed the title song “Shadow” for their 2nd album.

Yong Junhyung first challenged himself to acting with cable channel tvN’s music drama “Monster.” He plays the lead male role of Yoon Sul Chan naturally and without any awkwardness. The music drama was praised for doing a good job at casting the actors. As of now, Yong Junhyung shines more brightly with his presence onstage with his fellow BEAST members, but fans can look forward to his continuing development as an actor as he takes on other roles.
