The reason why “Extraordinary Attorney Woo” Joo Hyun-young participated in “JYP’s audition” before her debut

Joo Hyun-young emerged as a “trending actress” by playing Reporter Joo on Coupang Play’s “SNL Korea” and Dong Geu-ra-mi in ENA’s “Extraordinary Attorney Woo“.

Joo Hyun-young, who is greatly loved for her perfect acting skills, seems to have been born to be an actress, but in fact, the job she originally dreamed of was not an actress.

Joo Hyun-young appeared as a guest on Naver NOW’s “Just Come Out”, which was released on Sep 21st, and shared various stories with MC Kang Ho-dong.

On this day, Kang Ho-dong asked Joo Hyun-young if she had gone to an idol audition before dreaming of becoming an actress.

Joo Hyun-young nodded shyly and replied that she had auditioned for JYP Entertainment when she was in the second year of middle school.

When Kang Ho-dong asked why she had auditioned for JYP Entertainment among various companies such as SM Entertainment and YG Entertainment, Joo Hyun-young showed confidence, “I had a good feeling about this.”

Netizens were surprised, saying, “She’s the type of person that JYP likes” and “She looks like a rabbit, like TWICE Nayeon and NMIXX Bae.”

After learning that Joo Hyun-young had gone to an idol audition in the past, Kang Ho-dong started an audition situational play on the spot.

When Kang Ho-dong asked “Student Joo Hyun-young, what grade are you in now?”, Joo Hyun-young quickly adapted to the situational play by saying, “I’m in the second year of middle school now.”

Kang Ho-dong continued, “What did you prepare for today?” Joo Hyun-young answered “I prepared senior KARA’s dance” then jumped up from her seat.

Joo Hyun-young, who started performing KARA’s hit song “Pretty Girl”, caught everyone’s attention by showing her confident dance moves.

Kang Ho-dong said seriously, “It was great. But actually, people who are good at it do well even when they are nervous.” Hearing this, Joo Hyun-young was on the verge of tears, “Are you saying that I didn’t do well? My mom said I’m good at it. I came all the way from Gangwon-do.”

As Joo Hyun-young said “I’m not asking you to choose me” and continued to be close to tears, Kang Ho-dong got bewildered and quickly ended the situational play by saying, “Let’s move on.”

Many applauded the comical situational play of Joo Hyun-young, who was reinforced by playing the role of Reporter Joo on Coupang Play’s “SNL Korea”.
