JYJ‘s Yoochun asked his fans to stop criticizing sunbae actress Jang Mi In Ae.
It seems that some have complaints concerning Jang Mi In Ae’s casting in MBC‘s upcoming drama ‘I Miss You‘. As the two stars are from the same label, critical comments such as, “She’s not suitable for this role” and “It’s like a 1+1 with Yoochun” have surfaced online.
At the press conference for ‘I Miss You’ on the 1st, Yoochun responded, “I’m thankful for the interest in me, but I think that interest has made something that is nothing into a big issue. In the acting world, I’m her hoobae, and I’ve been put in a very difficult spot because of this. I’m just sorry that this kind of thing happened. I wish the fans would be a bit more comfortable. We’re family from the same label, so I hope the fans will stop.”
Jang Mi In Ae herself commented, “This kind of thing makes me think that I should work harder.”
The first episode of ‘I Miss You’ airs on the 7th at 9:55PM KST.
