Although not short on offers, B1A4's Jin Young admits he has not shared a kiss in six years!
At a press conference today for new tvN drama She is Wow, the 21-year-old idol group member blushed as he was forced to admit that a kiss scene in the upcoming series was his first since his early teens.
Actress and co-star Ahn Sun Young, 37, told reporters: "Jin Young said yesterday that he kissed for the first time in six years. He looked happy today." To which he responded: "It was a small peck, not a kiss, which happened when I was 17."
In the Kim Chul Gyu-directed series, the B1A4 lead vocalist plays the delinquent son of a celebrity couple (played by Park Sung Woong and Jo A Ra) in a story of a family imbued with problems as they pretend to appear perfect to the outside world.
Jin Young says of the new role: "I was worried because the role was very different from the warm image my fans know. I've been learning that there are more sides to me as I act, and it's really fun.
"I've kept my eye on fan reactions, and I saw they were half worried, half expectant. I believe my fans will also be entertained by my new look. Thankfully, the drama is for 15-and-over, not 19-and-over."
The first episode of She is Wow airs on April 18.
