2008-05-06Se7en to Join an American Cable Program
Korean idol singer Se7en may expand his career in the U.S. to acting. A publicist with RQM, a marketing firm overseeing Se7en’s career in America, joined a press conference by Se7en to announce that Se7en has a plan to debut as a supporting actor in an American cable TV program sometime in July or August. The publicist said that his firm will do all it can to get Se7en’s American career off to a good start. The Korean pop singer plans to not only pursue his music career in the U.S., but also explore his chances in modeling and acting.
Se7en has already debuted as actor in Korea, starring in drama “Gung S.” Although the drama failed to garner good ratings and was criticized for falling short of the prequel “Gung,” it was a new venture that opened wide other possibilities for Se7en. Perhaps the less-than-desirable outcome of his first acting role is driving him to do better in his next project. He is out to prove that he is not only a not musician, but also a promising actor.
Following the successful preview parties in New York and Los Angeles, Se7ven plans to release a regular album in July or August. It appears the year 2008 is going to be a really busy one for this aspiring actor.
