In a post-drama interview for ‘Discovery of Romance’ held on 16th Oct, Eric has praised idol actors for their performances, in particular singling out Im Shi Wan.
“The idol these days are doing very well, and it seems that the barrier between actor and singer has been broken down a lot. Nowadays when trainees enter the company, you won’t know what they will become. Depending out what they start out as, now there isn’t much of a great difference between singers who started out as actors and actors who started out as singers.”
“Actually there isn’t much of a significance to these young people. As I get older, doing acting projects while being part of Shinhwa, I can feel a wall of difference between the roles of a singer and an actor. But these days, they have received physical training from a young age, and to them there’s no significance in setting up a distinction between singer and actor. The younger they start out, the better they are.”
In particular, Eric gave praise to ZE:A member and actor Im Shi Wan for his acting skills.
