A Pink's Na-Eun talked about being an idol actress during an interview with 'InStyle'. 

Na-Eun said, "I am very shy, so I am afraid of new places. For my productions, I get stressed adjusting to new environments and people. But I try hard to overcome that so I can show new sides of me to the public."

She also spoke about the common misconceptions surrounding idol actors' poor acting. Na-Eun said, "Actors who only have been focusing on acting also tend to get involved in controversies, so I think it's understandable for singers. I also think it's natural for the public to be prejudiced, but I think I have a lot more to show. Singers and/or actors should take time slowly to show what they have. I also hope the public will watch me with more patience."

is that really her? she looks so different

I think this is where the difference with markets.  Asia markets for a lack of a better reason may not have as many trained actors as they do over in the states and europe.  When you are a star in the states you stay pretty focus in your art rarely do you see cross overs.  Yes there are examples of singers who have taken up acting say Jennifer Lopez or Whoopi Goldberg the later has actually won acting awards.  Also the vice versa where Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway are actually amazing singers (google them if you find that skeptical).  The separation is defined that you have TV actors rarely being able to succeed in movies and vice versa.

Yeah well controversies are irrelevant.  Actors do what they do best ... act.  Not many idols are good actors.  And frankly I don't want to see their learning curve on TV and especially not in movies where I've paid money.

Naeun...  Oh boy!  That girl is so fine.  Can't act?  Who cares?!  I'm down to watch her keep trying as long as she wants.   Seeing that beautiful girl do practically anything is amusement enough for me.  ;)

i have always thought that she is one of the most prettiest idol but for some reason on the drama "Cinderella four knights" her face look so stiff like it seem she put some botox on, probably the bad acting or maybe she is using some product on her face(flawless skin) but her face doesn´t show any expression at all O_o

if you don't have talent for acting then you shouldn't act , same if you don't have talent for singing then you shouldn't be singer .. many people work hard but working hard with out talent is waste of time and money .

PinkPandazz Thursday, August 18, 2016

She worked hard too. She trained for years and she tries her best. Her singing has improved so much since her debut. So what if other people are working hard to become a singer? It's not like she's preventing them to do whatever they want to do. And plus basin herself makes a lot of money of her company. So it's not a waste of time and money. Even if it was it's not your problem

It's her problem when she pays to go to a movie and idols are muddling along. It's also her problem when an idol is so bad that viewers stop watching even though there are too notch actors as well in the episodes. Idols getting leads without any experience is highly suspicious and it's usually the viewers who suffer. And to say her singing has improved so much implies that she wasn't good to begin with. Yes, sometimes a waste of time and money.

Naeun dear, your shouldn't be talking about misconceptions when your acting is still lacking so much. I'm watching "Cinderella and Four Knights", and every time she appears the scene feels slow and awkward. It's not that I have no patience but I'm worried Jung Il Woo and Park So Dam talent will go to waste if people start critizicing the drama because the other main actors are so bad.

Veronica96 veronicavivian Thursday, August 18, 2016

Hence why she's taking a supporting role rather than snatching a lead role like many other unskilled idols I would say it's more the drama itself that's slow the script and story aren't the best and tbqh a good script makes anybody's acting seem amazing cough*hyeri*cough As a fan even in finding it hard to watch this wannabe boys over flowers I hope it picks up

She is the antagonist of the female lead so she is part of the main cast and is going to appear frequently. I do agree the story is not original at all and quite corny most of the time, lol. But the reverse harem theme didn't start with "Boy Over Flowers", sure that is probably the most known Korean drama with that thematic so a lot of people are comparing them. The story itself is completely different and thankfully Jung Il Woo's character is not as arrogant and abusive as Goo Joon Pyo, otherwise I wouldn't watch it.

Veronica96 veronicavivian Thursday, August 18, 2016

Well they have mentioned that the story is inspired by bof in an interview I didn't just say It to drag lol anyways I do hope the story picks up I like to watch at least 3-5 episodes of a drama before dropping it. The drama itself has potential to get better and I really hope naeun's character stops being pitiful and turns into a bitch lol like I said she would rock the roll and it would be nice to see her take risks
