B1A4 leader, vocalist, and actor Jung Jin Young has taken on a new role in the Hong Sisters' drama Jeju Island Gatsby (aka Warm and Cozy) alongside Yoo Yun Suk and Kang So Ra. In recent interviews about the DramaFever exclusive, he has expressed his excitement for the role of Jung Poong San, and here's why:
1. He likes to talk!
Yes, you read that right. Jin Young stated during a recent interview that in his previous roles he may have had a lot of screen time, but he didn't actually have very many lines of dialogue. His role of Poong San apparently offers him relief because he finally gets a chance to speak numerous lines with less screen time.
2. He enjoys the challenge of different characters.
Jin Young loves to be dynamic. In addition to getting to speak more lines, he gets to play a type of character he never has before. The character, Poong San, will work in the Warm and Cozy restaurant that is owned by Baek Gun Woo, who is played by Yoo Yun Suk, and is said to be a fun, lovable guy.
3. The opportunity has brought him closer to the other members of B1A4.
Jin Young is no stranger to drama roles, but he continues to seek advice from his fellow B1A4 members as Baro, CNU, and Sandeul have taken part in dramas or musicals. While Gongchan hasn't had roles other than variety shows and music video appearances, he is said to be fully supporting Jin Young.
4. It's his first broadcast drama.
Although he has been in drama roles before, this is the first time he'll be in a show that is widely available through public broadcast! The chance to reach a new audience is exciting and nerve-racking... Let's hope he gains many new fans!
