On August 26, the cast and crew of tvN's 'Drinking Alone' attended the drama's press conference, opening up about their roles and more. 

DIA's Jung Chae Yeon, who will be taking on acting for the first time alongside SHINee's Key in 'Drinking Alone', said, "My company thought it would be difficult for me to carry out this role with busy schedules for DIA and IOI promotions, but I said I wanted to do it first. I'm working hard for my role. The oppas on set treat me very well." 

'Drinking Alone' starring Jung Chae Yeon, Key, Ha Suk Jin, Park Ha Sun, Gong Myung, and more premieres September 5!

    Problem is if she makes a hit drama she's going to quit singing and just act because it pays around the same and you get more sleep/breaks. Sulli, Sohee, and Suzy are already doing this.

    Chaeyeon also looks like Joy of Red Velvet.

    That makes zero sense. A visual not acting? And to add to that, how can they think this will be too much for her? IOI (as 11) probably wont be active till Nov or Dec, and even with her group making another comeback - its normal to miss performances b/c of an acting schedule. Chaeyeon acting is one of the best things she can do atm.

    Because that means that she won't be getting any rest or hardly any until mid February—at best—next year.

    End of the year is not that far away. Preparation for OT 11 and DIA's comeback is and shold already be in the works. So I wouldn't be surprise if the album recording and dance practices have already started.

    DIA's comeback is on the 12th. OT11 has not prepared anything as of yet. YMC already released a statement.

    Do you have any idea as to how drama are recorded? They're not recorded in the manner of any to show or series from the western countries. They record every single episode as they air and are often, merely two of not one episode ahead of the air time which often cause them to be sleep deprived. She'll be needing a couple of days to get back to somewhat of a decent "rhythm" so to speak. I don't understand the logic behind your reqsonkngZ her agency is worried about her well being, I genuinely do not see anything wrong with it. I get that she's a visual and definitely not a vocalist, the sooner she gets to act, the easier it'll be for to reconvert herself but still.

    Frankly, I also do not understand the logic behind my reqsonkngZ. As for the rest of your comment, a little context is needed. MBK is the company that chose to pull DIA from a currently active IOI, in order to prepare for a DIA comeback - meaning, that Chaeyeon had to promote under two groups consecutively - that's harsh. But, now that IOI is currently inactive as 11, and with DIA already prepared for a comeback - why wouldn't Chaeyeon be able to handle it? Seolhyun, Mina, Hyeri, etc - all managed to miss group performances/activities because of acting commitments. The only reason for Chaeyeon to not have rest is if MBK forces her to join performances during acting days (which is nearly impossible, they don't call it schedule conflicts for nothing).

    I think MBK is also opposing it for team work sake... Chaeyeon is the only one being recognize almost all the time .... It pays to be IOI! This is probably her make or break acting debut...
