The idol had previously been reported to be in discussion for a role in the new drama, but the latest news suggest that she has now been confirmed. Core Contents Media announced on June 29th that “Eunjung has decided to take on ’Five Fingers’,” and “She will play the role of Hong Dami, a girl who has given up on her dreams due to difficult family circumstances.”
As T-ara’s will be releasing their new album and following up with promotions after, Eunjung debated if she could balance between her acting career and music. In the end, she decided that she would take on the challenge to show yet another side of her on the small screen with her brand-new role.
Core Contents further commented, “Eunjung has held acting roles even as a child before her debut,” and “She has improved greatly through her various roles in ‘Dream High 1‘ and ‘Coffee House‘. Please keep giving her support and attention.”
‘Five Fingers’ is a drama about youth who struggle to overcome their tragic pasts and obstacles, and fight on to achieve their dreams. Joo Ji Hoon will hold the role of the main male role. The first episode will air on August 4th with the conclusion of ‘Gentlemen’s Class‘.
