Q: An example of Idol actress – ‘EunJung’. She debuted in entertainment industry as a child actress. What does it mean for her to be an actress and an idol?
“Although I started as an actress, because of T-ara’s activities, I can perform the activites in a better environment and role. These two things [actress & idol] cannot be seperated and stand on its own. First, when I am an actress, I am not the T-ara’s member Ham Eun Jung because I am myself, so must put more effort. Because during acting I have to cooperate with many other people (director and staffs) to produce a good drama. Although it’s tiring I’m happy. It’s not a reality but another world (world of acting) but it’s still a happy thing. On the other hand, being a T-ara member, standing on the stage, I can ease the feelings inside me. Especially when I stand on the stage with other members, I have an overwhelming feeling. Being able to perform on the stage with members is a very happy thing.”
Q: Who would you like to act with if you ever had a chance?
EJ: After watching <Bridal Mask>, feels like acting with Joo Won. Seeing him in <1 night 2 days> and in the drama got a little difference. Because he is too immersed in the character, so feels like acting with him. Seems like I can learn lots of things from him.
Before EunJung starts talking about <Bridal Mask>‘s JooWon, she hesitates for awhile. Because of her husband in WGM, Lee Jang Woo, who acts in the new MBC drama <I Do I Do> that has the same airing time as <Bridal’s Mask>. “I pay close attention to my husband through the live broadcast! Especially paying CLOSE attention to the large scale intimate scenes. I thought the scale will be much bigger, seems weaker than I thought?” She answers with a complicated (?) jealousy tone.
Q: Working together with popular male stars such as, ‘Lee Jang Woo, Kim Soo Hyun, Taecyeon and WooYoung’ which one is your ideal man?
EJ: I like people that is earnest in being themselves. Especially a sentimental, understanding style. Ah, and also I like people who are attentive. For example, I want to be able to feel that he is attentive in all aspects of daily life. (<– Do you think Jangwoo fits her criteria?? XD – catgoh92)
What would she try out next in the future? It seems that being DJ is good. “I really want to try to work as a Radio DJ! If I really become a DJ, my life experience will gain a lot. Many people’s stories are shared in the radio broadcast, aren’t they? Because there is also music, it completes the things that I like all in one [being a radio DJ].
Q: If you really become a radio DJ, what kind of music would you prefer to air?
EJ: “Perhaps you know who is Ju Yoon Ha*? Using a ‘soft voice to sing as if you are talking’, is a style of music I like.”

Q: What is your dream as a singer?
EJ: “I want to listen to comments like ‘It’s good to have this kind of voice as a singer’, or maybe ‘Now we need EunJung’s song’. In short, I want to become a must-have singer. In order to become like this, I have to practice more and work hard to succeed.”
