2PM’s Taecyeon has been confirmed for the drama “Dream High“, and both fans as well as casual viewers from “Cinderella’s Sister” are demonstrating high enthusiasm for the choice.
Taecyeon will play the role of ‘Jin Gook‘, a prodigy in dancing yet a scoundrel in school. Although Jin Gook grew up rebelling against all school-related activities, Director Lee of ‘Kin Rin (Giraffe) Prep School’ encouraged his enrolment in the school. The rebel finds his hidden talent as a dancer in the artistic school, and dreams of becoming a world star. He’s also involved in a love story with ‘Hyemi’ (actress undisclosed), a bold and proud singer who deems herself as the second Jo Sumi, a Grammy-winning soprano.
Taecyeon’s acting in “Cinderella’s Sister” was praised far and wide for successfully portraying a man with an unrequited, yet unfaltering love. In this new work, he will showcase a similar devotion, but to dancing and demonstrating an adolescent’s hope.
Reportedly, Taecyeon and actor Kim Soo Hyun (SBS “Giant“) assisted each other with improving their performing and acting skills: Kim Soo Hyun adopted Taecyeon’s stage manners and performance, while Taecyeon received guidance on acting from Kim Soo Hyun. Kim Soo Hyun has been slotted to play ‘Song Sam Dong’, a rural dancer who’s as equally talented as Jin Gook.
Taecyeon stated, “I’m very excited at this new project. I’m especially happy that the drama is music-based and there are amazing seniors to guide me. I’ll give everything of myself to create a spectacular work”.
