When you think about MBLAQ, acting isn’t necessary the first thing that pops to your mind, but it’s also not the last.
Over the past couple of years, the MBLAQ members have dove into this new world of acting, exploring new challenges that they can face along the way as a famed celebrity.
While they’re still babies in this acting game, it’s not stopping the members from doing their best, making new goals, and just simply shining their pretty faces to the fans.
Out of MBLAQ, Lee Joon is the member with the most acting experience.
He made his fame as ‘Little Rain’ in the movie Ninja Assassin and then worked his way up to KBS’ Iris 2.
Lee Joon’s made himself the actor in the team, even being casted in Director Kim Ki Duk’s upcoming new movie, An Actor is an Actor.
It seems like he has nowhere else to go but up when it comes to acting, and we hope he keeps himself humble throughout the entire process.
G.O.’s still a rookie when it comes to acting, but he’s definitely a determined one.
He’s acted in several projects, including SBS’ Ghost, KBS’ Pure Love, and KBS’ Love and War 2 – Idol Edition.
Although he’s been criticized for somewhat terrible acting, G.O. confidently responded back by saying, “Nothing can start out in a perfect state. I’m a singer, but when I look at our first album, there are many things I’m embarrassed about. If there is an idol, who has a longing for acting and a good opportunity comes, he shouldn’t let it go.”
He’s even made fun of his own bad acting on tvN’s Saturday Night Live Korea..
Keep on acting, G.O. Don’t let anybody bring you down!
Seungho took a different route in acting, heading to a stage instead of the screen.
In early 2013, Seungho, along with G.O, appeared in the musical, Gwanghwamun’s Love Song in Osaka and Tokyo. Also double casted, Seungho made sure that his acting did not get overshadowed, portraying his character in his own style.
Now instead of acting, Seungho’s more interested in dancing across the stage, but we’re sure that when the right opportunity comes, he’ll be more than willing to return to acting soon.
Following his nuna’s footsteps, Cheon Dung is slowly edging into the acting career, and things aren’t looking too bad for him.
He was able to put him name on a few projects, including jTBC’s Padam Padam…the Sound of His and Her Heartbeats as Jung Woo Sung’s younger self, and now he’s playing his own character on MBC QueeN’s Nail Shop Paris.
Baby steps are the key, and Cheon Dung is doing it right.
All right. Mir is the one member of MBLAQ who has yet to be a part of any acting production.
But that is okay, because not everyone is meant to become an actor.
Although, there is still a glimmer of hope since Mir did participate in Saturday Night Live Korea, and if he’s willing to throw away his well-made image like it’s nothing, anything is possible.
