GOT7's Jinyoung Selected as People's Most Anticipated Idol-Actor
From Apr. 29 to May 13, StarPlay conducted a poll, titled "The most anticipated actor idol in 2021?"
Fans were tasked to vote for their all-rounder bias, who is not only great on stage but also great at acting. They were encouraged to select the idol they wish would appear in dramas every single day.
The idol who won first place would earn a Seoul Station CM board video advertisement and news coverage reporting that they are first place and had won a subway advertisement.
Ranking in the first place is GOT7's Jinyoung, who snagged 71.57% of the total votes.
Jinyoung made his acting debut in 2012 when he was cast in the role of Jung Ui Bong in the teen drama "Dream High 2."
That same year, he acted in the MBC drama "When a Man Falls in Love." He stopped acting for a year until he returned to the silver screen in 2015 in "This Is My Love."
He made his film debut in 2016 with the independent film "A Stray Goat."
In the movie, Jinyoung played a high school student who moved to Goseong. There, he meets a girl who is an outcast due to rumors and whispers about her father.

Jinyoung is currently filming for the tvN drama "Devil Judge," which is set to air in June.
