I find it okay, but then again I am Asian. haha.

The thing is that Asian entertainment relies greatly on the star system, which is like a factory of celebrities trained to do everything (and I mean EVERYTHING). Japan and Korea have idols, Taiwan has a similar thing going on, and the Philippines (where I'm from, even though I grew up in America) makes their actors sing, dance and sometimes run for political office on national TV every week. I think the reason why it's always boy bands is that these idols are trained in groups and so instead of trying to promote each and every one of them, putting out boybands is the best way to make lots of boys popular quickly. And to KEEP them popular, the idol factories make them do everything they can to get out there, so they act AND dance AND sing AND host TV shows AND do commercials. I don't know if they sleep haha.

Not everyone is blessed in the same areas, so some boys are better than others at acting (Matsujun comes to mind) while others are better at singing (although I don't really listen to boybands for their vocal skills LOL). So I don't mind boybands acting if they're GOOD, and I like them even better if they can sing AND act. Broadway stars do it all the time (and are expected to do so) so if the actor is good, I won't care if he's in a boyband as well.

Je suis desolee que je ne puisse pas le traduire en francais (MDR).

i don't really mind it...but i prefer it if they would stick more to singing...maybe acting in mini dramas like DBSK would be fine...

i dont mind also,, maybe it depends on the person in the band that is acting... if they have looks whynot.. dont waste it.. but if they dont have the acting talent dont try hard just stick on your career.. but i love DBSK...

I don't connect their singing career with their acting career.
I try to give each individual a chance in each area before I utter an opinion.
So I can't say that I agree with you. Although some singers who try to be actors (or the other way around) are sometimes really horrible, so I kinda get what you mean.

And another thing, how the HELL can you not like Lee Jun Ki?
He is the BEST asian actor! You should give him another chance, he's brilliant... really!

I'm opening this post because it's like in Asia ALL actors are singers or singers are actors...

I'm French and it's really strange for me because it's not common here. Usually when an actor tries singing, it's always a failure! And even worst when someone from a boys band tries it


Same here..I'm italian and here there isn't to the use of the Idol..the sistem of being a celebrity is pretty different between Europe and Asia..

Howevr I like that they can be anctors and singers..for explemple, I used not to like so much Nishikido Ryo as a singer, but I started to apreciate him as an actor..so everyone could try his best in different categories! =)

I don't know! I tried to watch him in "My girl" (back then I used to appreciate him) and in 2movies (Virgin Snow and another one)... AND NOW, I just can't see his face!!! For me he's like an alien, very strange face (with a nice body ).

I also don't like his acting (Virgin Snow was the worst for me)

But I really can understand why some people like him (as I did some years ago)

Anyway, if you have a movie to recommend me, I'll give it a try

As long as its not lame... i'm fine wif boy bands acting

Now wat i really cant stand is when the boy bands which i hate start acting.... hehe dun noe why, it sorta pisses me off



totally agree

in my country to singers stick with singing and actors stick with acting , but few singers start acting , well they were horrible but never happend that actoer start to sing , so i think if they have talent they can act and sing like kibum from suju but if not please stick to your field , esp. if some group or actors that i hate XD

A drama/movie where Yamapi is killed... Oh yes please!!! I will support it with all my heart!

(Don't be mad fans, I just think it would be fun and different to see it... in real life, I would be very sad if something like that would happen)

nagase tomoya
he started out as a singer.. then became an actor and he's still very active in both of them.

here's some of his best doramas in my opinion:
Ikebukuro West Gate Park

My Boss My Hero

Mukodono!
