KBS has announced that several idol stars will appear in the idol version of adultery drama Couple Clinic: Love and War Season 2. Fans of the original version of Love and War are disappointed with the change of direction, arguing that idol stars are “trespassing even on dramas that used to feature actors who are not in the top tier but still work hard to do their best in their own areas.” The chosen idol stars are 4minute’s Jihyun, ZE:A’s Dong Joon and Jewelry’s Kim Ye Won.
The episodes are based on true stories submitted by viewers. The episodes start off with a troubled couple who files for divorce and the story develops as the couples talk out their issues. The scandalous drama has been popular among married women.
With the crossovers of actors pursuing singing careers and vice versa, do you agree that idol stars are trespassing into the acting industry off their fame achieved in the music industry?
