On December 28, W Korea released images from (G)I-DLE stunning photoshoot. Along with the eye-catching photos was an interview with each member.
Each member shared about their own personal traits or solo activities. For member Miyeon, she discussed her acting debut and how it made her realize things about herself.
I tried acting for the first time in the web drama ‘Replay,’ which recently finished filming. My character is someone who expresses herself honestly and is straightforward, so I looked at myself through that. Uncertain on how others would see me, I think I have been unknowingly hiding myself. During my lengthy trainining period, I would deceive myself and say ‘it’s okay,’ despite how hard it was. Because of this, it might have turned into a habit.
Miyeon continued to explain how acting helped her. She shared that though she hides herself, acting is helping her with that habit.
I think acting acts as a prescription for me since I can run away from hiding myself. One day I would wander, and, one day I would recognize and learn how to express naturally myself. I’m still not great at it, but it was fun to work in the drama and bring myself out.
Many fans expressed their excitement and support to see actress Miyeon in Replay. Fans also revealed that they are happy acting has created a method for Miyeon to stop hiding and have fun.
(G)I-DLE fans are looking forward to Replay and (G)I-DLE’s fourth mini-album “I burn” on January 11 at 6 p.m. KST.
