HyunA, who recently made her comeback with 'A'wesome,' talked about turning down a role from director Na Hong Jin for his movie 'The Wailing,' a role that was ultimately given to Chun Woo Hee.


She said, "I was cautious about speaking on this on KBS 2TV's 'Happy Together 3,' because it wasn't a production I appeared in and there's a lot of interest in 'The Wailing.'" Back on the show, she briefly recalled getting an offer for the movie.

She said, "Firstly, for the mere fact they had an interest in me, it never crossed my mind to turn them down. Director Na Hong Jin personally came to me.  He talked about my appearing in 'The Wailing.'  I was also curious about why they wanted to cast me.  He told me he had seen my energy on stage on a big screen.  He told me, 'I want to bring about a new image apart from that one.'  I was grateful that he viewed me in that way.


"However, I respectfully declined.  It was an area I didn't think I had a right to approach. I do have a lot of fears, but I also have a lot of ambitions for the stage.  Until I am 100% satisfied with my performances, I will not try different areas.  I have no intention to act right now."

    That's a good choice!! There's no need to rush everything... When time comes, she could try some minor roles and see if she's suitable in acting then decides if she'd like to pursue this path. Tbh, i think some idols turned actor are not good enough to be leads but they get offered the roles because they are popular...

    She is suitable to act in Porn. Hardcore teen porn genre. Not a commercial movie

    Thats good for her. Personally i have watch the movie recently and i can assure you that 100% that she would not be able to pull off the character. The character she has to portray is a person who is shrouded in mystery, weirdness and mystical at the same time.
