2AM’s Jung Jin Woon is standing tall in his role for Dream High 2.

Jung is appearing in KBS2’s Dream High 2 as Jin Yoo Jin, whose name means ‘A star that will someday become real’. Yoo Jin is a character that loves music, writing songs in his dorm room alone and playing his guitar in the streets of Hongdae at night.

Jung, who tried out acting for the first time through this piece, wasn’t hit by the acting skill controversy that often drowns out other singers in acting pieces. Viewer boards were covered with praise for his acting after the first episode aired.

Jung was often overshadowed in 2AM by Jo Kwon and Chang Min, but he’s stepped forth into his own limelight in Dream High 2.

About Jung’s acting, a rep from his agency Big Hit Entertainment told enews, “Jung Jin Woon didn’t get to receive much training because he was busy with schedules inside and outside the country. But he was able to get into his role because he and his character were very similar.”

Jung used to be a rock singer, put together a rock band and performed at the Jisan Valley Rock Festival. He has also started a career as a solo singer with two rock albums to perform the music he always wanted to do.

The rep added, “Thanks to the praise, Jung Jin Woon is working harder than ever. As the story progresses, he’ll be getting even better at acting.”

Dream High 2 is about how the students of Kirin Art School meet the most popular idol group in the country, Eden and Hershey, after the school is taken over by Oz Entertainment.

The crazies of Kirin Art School, Shin Hae Sung (Kang So Ra) and Jin Yoo Jin (Jung Jin Woon), Hershey’s Ri An (Park Ji Yeon), Nana (Hyolyn) and Ailee, and the male idol group Eden’s JB (JB) and Si Woo (Park Seo Jun) will be waging war against each other.
