MBLAQ’s Mir Reveals He Once Auditioned For the Same Role as Kim Soo Hyun
MBLAQ may count a slew of other male idol groups out there as rivals but for MBLAQ’s Mir, it seems his rival was, at one point, none other than top star Kim Soo Hyun.
In the recent recording for MBC Everyone’s Idol Manager the MBLAQ members were asked to share on some of the most dramatic moments in their lives.
Mir revealed a surprising story in which, before his debut, he was already famously known for his good looks and thus went to audition for the then-drama, Jungle Fish 1.
Viewed favorably the drama’s production, Mir’s audition process was going smoothly until he was suddenly dropped at the final round.
When asked who eventually won the role Mir auditioned for, he revealed it was none other than today’s hot star, Kim Soo Hyun, who won the role and would eventually go on to star in hits like Dream High and The Sun and the Moon.
The members also took time during the same episode to evaluate and assess their seniors and peers as ‘acting-dols’ (idols who also become actors).
G.O. candidly shared during this time that among all celebrities he has seen so far, Eugene, formerly of S.E.S was the most beautiful person he’s seen.
He added her beauty was to the point he could fully understand why people compared her with the famous actress Olivia Hussey.
The MBLAQ members will also assess other acting-dols such as Yun Eun Hye, Sung Yuri, Eric and more when the episode airs on November 2.
