3. Jeong Yeon (TWICE)

In 2021, Jeong Yeon refused an opportunity to appear in a drama, leaving a deep regret for fans. Hopefully, she will get cast again and appear on the small screen as an actress.
4. Eun Ha (VIVIZ)

The special thing about Eun Ha is that she is a former child actress who participated in a drama in 2007. Despite having a good starting point, after that, Eun Ha did not accept any main role in any work.
Eun Ha also graduated in Theater Arts with well-trained acting ability. Eun Ha‘s innocent and lovely image would be very suitable for a female lead role in a drama with a romantic love story.
5. S.Coups (SEVENTEEN)
Referring to the talented young rappers of Kpop, the leader of SEVENTEEN – S.Coups cannot be ignored. And you know, he studied at the Seoul School of Performing Arts, and graduated with a major in theater acting.
S.Coups may have aspired to be an actor before deciding to pursue a career in show biz. S.Coups has the capacity to conquer all movie genres with amazing performances on stages with SEVENTEEN, as well as his god-like visuals.
These are all Kpop cult faces who have all the elements to become actors. However, up to now, they have not tried their hand in the film industry. Hopefully, in the near future, the idols will appear in a big series.
