Kim Minkyu once pursued a different dream, which actually coincides with the rest of the “Business Proposal” major cast.
Actor Kim Minkyu has been drawing attention for his outstanding visuals and physique. Before gaining massive popularity after “Business Proposal”, he actually became a hot topic for appearing in “I Can See Your Voice 4”.
In this music show, Kim Minkyu boasts a beautiful and emotional singing voice. Therefore, he once attempted to debut as a Kpop idol.
According to the actor on talk show “Radio Star”, he used to spend a short time preparing to become a Kpop idol, and actually trained alongside the now famous Kpop group SEVENTEEN.
At the time, he didn’t know what his team would debut as, but stayed and practiced for around a month.
However, he later realized he wasn’t suited for the idol life and held a deeper passion for acting, thus changing his career path.
After years of effort, Kim Minkyu finally gained attention for his role as the second male lead of “Business Proposal”. There, the actor seems to have reunited with his old passion.
In addition, the second lead actress Seol In Ah was also a Kpop trainee, and used to train under the same company as KARA Heo Young Ji.
Finally, Kim Se Jeong, who played “Business Proposal” female lead, debuted in Kpop group I.O.I, and later in gugudan. Both of her groups have since disbanded, leaving Kim Se Jeong another member of the cast who turned from idol to actor.
It seems that the main cast “Business Proposal” shares more similarities than one may think.
