Some popular k-drama actresses might have debuted in a k-pop group. Would they have made the same impression as singers?

For example, both Gu Hye Sun and Lee Honey at one time were considered potential members of 2NE1.

On a recent episode of "Night of TV Entrainment" Big Bang"s T.O.P. spoke about his "Tazza 2" co-star Lee Honey and her almost k-pop debut.

"Honey Lee was a YG Entertainment trainee, like me," he said. "For a while, it looked like she was going to debut with 2NE1. I remember thinking, "Why does she want to get into the world of music if she looks as beautiful as she does?" The next thing I knew, she had become Miss Korea!"

Lessons We Learn From K-Dramas

By in News posted Oct August 30th, 2014 No comments

 

K-dramas are pretty moral. Here are just a few of the moral judgments they make in an entertaining way. Bad guys rarely get away with their evil deeds indefinitely. Hard work pays off. Having compassion is important. People can change. Destorying your life in the pursuit of revenge is a bad idea. Love that"s true will wait.

If you think about it, you"ve probably seen a few examples.

Good triumphs over evil: K-dramas feature some pretty terrible villains who seem to get away with the most horrible deeds. But they don"t get away with it forever. They all eventually pay for their crimes.

n "Big Man" an innocent man"s life was threatened for a rich man"s organ transplant. The crime was a k-drama low. But in the end the corporate bad guys get punished

The latest debut in the K-pop industry is the four member girl group 4TEN. Hailing from Jungle Entertainment, the girls are label mates with hip-hop group M.I.B. and are the first girl group to debut under the company. The group’s roles are evenly split with two rappers — Tem and Eujin — and two vocalists — Hye-ji and Hye-jin.

Not only did the members participate in writing the lyrics, but the music video for “Tornado” was also filmed in Los Angeles — a far destination for rookies. But did their travel pay off?
