[Singapore’s My Paper] Idol singers compete to seize the television industry. Marvellous medicine*? Poison?
(*T/N: It also means a good way to solve problems.)
Korean idol singers are competing to seize television dramas. JYJ’s Park Yoochun, ZE.A’s Lee Si Wan, Girls’ Generation’s Yoona and Yuri are appearing in the dramas that are showing now. There is a substantial amount of idol singers who will be appearing in upcoming television dramas. These idol singers include MBLAQ’s G.O, Girls’ Generation’s Soo Young, who will both be entering the television drama industry for the first time. G.O will be acting in ‘Phantom’ while Soo Young is staring in ‘The Third Hospital’. Miss A’s Suzy will take on the leading role in ‘Big’. It will be her second time taking on a leading role.
According to the analysis of Korean entertainment, it is a win-win situation for drama production crews who look for idol singers as singers can increase popularity, name recognition and the number of fans.

A suit is not just a proper piece of clothing that is only worn during formal occasions. The suit itself is an item that shows class, status and disposition. The color, pattern, lapel appearance, and button change the feel of a suit. There are several stars who make a 200% use of this concept.
