Can you tell us a little bit about ‘Tantara?’

A graduate of girl group After School and current actress Yoo So Young has updated her fans on her whereabouts.
On March 9, viewers of SBS’ “1000 Song Challenge” were surprised to see a rare but familiar face on the show, as this was her first variety show appearance in a long time. While she participated as a singer, she confessed to focusing on her activities as an actress.
MC Lee Hwi Jae asked, “Yoo So Young is a previous member of After School. Is it true that you are now working as an actress?”
“That’s correct. I am currently appearing on SBS’ morning drama ‘You’re Only Mine.’ It airs every morning at 8.30,” she took a moment to reveal her latest acting project and promote it.
The beautiful actress is gaining experience in the acting field by playing Kang Sung Ah in the popular morning drama
Even though it cannot repeat the perfect score of last week, the duet “Some” between Soyu and Junggigo is No. 1 for the third straight week. This song just keeps piling up music show wins. Even before very strong competitions, this week “Some” still wins on KBS Music Bank. Odds don’t favor this song to be No. 1 again next week since we have a trio of major artists coming back and eyeing the top spot (more on that below). But “Some” has been incredibly durable in popularity and may surprise again next week.
We have five new songs in the top 10 this week. Just below “Some” is our highest new song. Moving up 17 spots to No. 2 is Sunmi’s new hit “Full Moon.” Last year, Sunmi successfully came back as a solo artist with the chart topping hit “24 Hours
Yoo In Na has been keeping herself busy.
She recently finished filming You Who Came From the Stars and was chosen as the main MC of On Style’s Get It Beauty, challenging herself in a new field. Amidst the busy schedules, she hasn’t let go of her DJ position for KBS 2FM’s Increase the Volume.
Many actors and actresses are quite envious of Yoo In Na’s filmography, which includes dramas such as Secret Garden, The Greatest Love, You’re the Best Lee Soon Shin and Queen In Hyun’s Man, which have earned much popularity from the public.
And now adding You Who Came From the Stars to her resume, Yoo In Na has come to own a killer filmography.
Having finished acting as ‘Yoo Se Mi’ in You Who Came From the Stars, Yoo In Na shared her feelings and thoughts

If I always think from the others" perspectives, it helps me to accommodate and understand. Now I think that not having much screen time is okay
