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."
