CNBLUE′s bassist Lee Jung Shin became the last CNBLUE member to start up his acting career, but still managed to get off on the right footing.
He appeared in the KBS2 drama My Daughter Seo Young, which aired its first episode on September 15, as Kang Sung Jae, the rebellious teen who is completely different from his better-off brother Woo Jae (Lee Sang Yoon) and sister Mi Kyung (Park Jung Ah). He will barely start to harness an interest in his studies due to the crush he has on his private tutor Seo Young (Lee Bo Young).
In the first and second episodes of the drama, Lee Jung Shin became a teen absorbed in himself, even walking like a model alone, and at times put on his cute antics in front of his mother role. The band member proved indeed that the regular training he had received in acting was paying off.
He told enews on September 17, “I′m happy that I′m acting for the first time in a role that I really wanted to try. I′ll work hard to be a good actor as Kang Sung Jae in My Daughter Seo Young. I watched the broadcasts with the CNBLUE members, and their support is a big help to me. I′ll continue to be more natural and cheerful.”
My Daughter Seo Young is a drama which tells of how a daughter cuts her ties with her family due to her father′s incompetence, yet is accepted by her father anyway.
It is directed by producer Yoo Hyun Ki, the man behind Master of Study and Brain, and writer So Hyun Kyung of Prosecutor Princess and 49 Days. It stars not only Lee Jung Shin, but also Chun Ho Jin, Lee Bo Young, Lee Sang Yoon, Park Hae Jin, Choi Yoon Young and Park Jung Ah.
