Tiffany jumps into in acting
Many agree that Tiffany is one of the best vocalists in the K-pop industry. For almost a decade, she has been singing together with Girls Generation & subgroup TaeTiSeo while also being a solo artist & a fashion icon. Was that enough? NOPE! She had to add acting to that too.

She had her first hands-on acting experience by appearing as cameo in drama series The Producers (2015) and melodrama film Brilliant Life (2014).
She decided to learn acting, a new skill and her passion to become a multi-talented superstar. Before making more waves on screen though, she will head back to the US to study acting to make sure those are big waves.
Soo-young is the leading actress in many popular drama series
Soo-young got her big break as a guest actress in hit drama series Gentleman’s Dignity (2012).
She was then given the golden opportunity to be the leading actress in the following dramas:
- Dating Agency: Cyrano (2013)
- The Spring Day of My Life (2014)
- Man Who Sets the Table (2017)
- A Person You Could Know (2017)
She received awards as an excellent actress in The Spring Day of My Life at 2015 Korea Drama Awards and 2014 MBC Drama Awards.

Her next on-screen appearance will be the upcoming medical drama Polyclinic Doctor where third year medical students go through hardcore training in a hospital.
As a SNSD Girl’s Generation member, she is known as the girl-next-door with bubbly personality. When it comes to acting, she puts in a lot of effort by understanding her own character like a close friend or relative. You can see this come through in her facial expressions, dialogues, and actions in all her shows.
Seo-hyun’s focus is to improve her singing and acting skills in musicals & TV
Seo-hyun joined the cast of Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo (2016) and Bad Thief, Good Thief (2017). In addition to being as cameo in previous dramas, she understands that there is plenty of room for her to polish her acting skills.
She has done a lot of singing – as she is one of the main vocalists in SNSD Girl’s Generation and a solo artist. Now, she resolved in moving on to become a better actress.
Her fiery passion for being on stage performing musicals continues to shine bright. She sang and danced in these musicals:
- Moon Embracing the Sun
