She may be one of today’s hottest actresses but did you know Shin Se Kyung originally wanted, and trained, to be a singer?

A recent posting on an online community board revealed Shin’s younger trainee days as a singer.

The screen captures were from a 2003 SBS documentary series with the episode focusing on Boa’s popularity in Japan. During the episode a then-first year middle school student-aged Shin appeared as a no-name trainee singer.

Also revealed in the segment were the evaluations made by her then-agency commenting on trainee Shin as “[An individual] whose overflowing aspiration to be a singer is clearly visible” and “She always arrives first much ahead of the lesson time and even stays long afterwards to practice,” revealing her once-passionate dream to be a singer.

Netizens praised her youthful beauty and commented on the screen captures saying, “I think it’s a good thing she decided to be an actor”, “Her young appearance is so cute” and “She prepared to be a celebrity for a long time.”

Perhaps an album from Shin will be in the works in the near future, since we already know she can sing?
