TWICE's Jungyeon reveals JYPE turned down an offer for her to cameo in her sister's drama

AKP STAFF

TWICE's Jungyeon revealed during a recent voice live through 'V Live+' that an offer for her to appear as a cameo in a drama was turned down by JYP Entertainment.

When one fan asked Jungyeon if she had any interest in cameo-ing in her sister (actress Gong Seung Yeon)'s upcoming drama, Jungyeon commented, "I received a few drama requests, but the company kind of stopped it."

Some fans expressed disappointment toward the fact that throughout TWICE's careers, they haven't had an opportunity to delve into acting, even for just a cameo role. 

Do you want to see TWICE try out acting?

Twice's situation is so weird and oddly frustrating. They're one of the most popular girl groups full of visuals, one would think JYP would jump at the chance to get them additional deals to build their brands. Plenty of other groups both male and female get plenty of opportunities, so it's always sad to see that the members don't get additional opportunities. Her comment also seems to differ from the standard response members have given in the past of "We just want to be a group and don't want solo projects". I can understand wanting your core focus to be on your group, but I find it hard to believe that every single member has no desire to do anything outside of Twice. I feel for Jeongyeon, because I also can't help but wonder if they justify turning down such offers due to her recent needs for rest and treatment. It would be such an easy ploy to say "Well she's already so stressed that she has to take a hiatus from group activities, so adding anything extra wouldn't be good for her." Just my theory of course.

Jeongyeon echoes the same sentiments as Mark of GOT7. I think providing Twice members with individual opportunities to grow as artists, can be beneficial to JYP Ent. and Twice as a group in the long run. I think Dahyun will be really good in variety shows, Jihyo will be a good judge and mentor in talent shows, Sana has the potential to be a good host and I am sure other members have skills that are yet to be developed.

The Miss A situation was really unpleasant but JYP Ent. should learn from it.


Totally unrelated to the issue, I really think that Twice's stylist does not really care or pay attention to Jeongyeon. It's an old issue, but she gets the most unflattering, or totally basic outfits. By this time, the stylist should have a better grasp of what fits the individual members.
