There is no holding back for 2PM's Taecyeon as he is full of enthusiasm wishing to achieve many things.  The desire of the idol star that has been in the business for 10 years and who successfully transitioned into acting is on fire.  As Taecyeon will be entering the military soon, he sat down for an interview with Kukmin Ilbo.

"It was hard for me to switch back and forth as a singer and an actor. I started acting when 2PM was in its prime.   Back then, I was exhausted since it wasn't really what I wanted to do. But it's not like that anymore.  Now that I actually want to act, I feel a sense of greater responsibility," - Taecyeon.


His role in the new film 'House of the Disappeared' is his second film overall and Taecyeon plays the role of a priest.  Working alongside co-star actress Kim Yun Jin, Taecyeon talked about his interest in entering the U.S. market as an actor. He even sent out demo tapes numerous times.  "I think it's always good to take on challenges.  I am constantly knocking on the door... When I toured for the first time in the United States with 2PM, I felt I had achieved my dreams.  Now I have a new goal. For my movie to play in theaters across America."


When asked which direction he would take, Taecyeon commented, "I'm not quite sure yet." He then mentioned the army, "I think I'll be able to establish a clear goal once I return from the military."


In 2011, the idol star decided to give up his U.S. permanent resident status and enter the Korean military.  "Of course I thought about it a lot. But I think my heart will be more at ease after going to the army. I feel it's the right way."


Taecyeon then added jokingly, "They say that once you enter the military, you either give up or survive until the end. Many people said that I'll do well. Haha."

    I really like Taecyeon. I wish him luck in the Army and can't wait to see him once he returns. I am going to find the movie and watch it. I also wish him luck in America.

    Don't try to put down America to elevate your opinion which by the way is stupid.

    you can know your limit only when you push yourself... and that you can cdo only if u r not afraid to fall... thats the attitude of Ok Taecyeon.. he will do whatever he wishes to do because everything he achieved till date is bcos of that fighting attitude... #ProudTaecStan #ProudHottest
