Apink’s Jung Eun-ji revealed the reason why she became the female lead in “Reply 1997” despite having no experience

Jung Eun-ji of the group Apink recalled being casted for “Reply 1997” when she debuted as an actress.

In TV Chosun’s “식객 허영만의 백반기행” (Eater Huh Young-man’s Beakban Travel) which aired on February 4th, Apink’s Jung Eun-ji and Park Cho-rong appeared as guests to find out about Hwaseong’s food.

Jung Eun-ji, who is recognized for her outstanding skills as a singer and an actress, recalled her role in her first drama, “Reply 1997” saying, “It was a role that requires dialect.”

“The director was originally a variety show director, and his first drama was “Reply 1997.” He wanted to do it with an actress who is well-known to a certain extent. I was a rookie and wasn’t sure if I’m good at acting, but I think he liked my Busan dialect. He laughed at my audition, saying, “I like it because it’s you, but why does it have to be you?”

To Jung Eun-ji, who has recently been making headlines through “Work Later, Drink Now,” Heo Young-man said, “I heard you played a role that swears a lot. What kind of swears is it?” Jung Eun-ji hesitated to demonstrate the swears right on the spot and eventually replaced it with a video, saying, “It’s not something I can say in front of you.”
