‘Real Men’ with Hyeri unlikely
“We talked about having Hyeri in the second season but she could not take time for the shoot because she is currently appearing in a new drama series,” a confidant close to Hyeri told the media.
“Real Men” originally featured male celebrities, though the first special edition in which Hyeri and five other female television starlets experienced Army life, became a huge hit in August and September.
Hyeri started out as a member of Girl’s Day in 2010, but was quickly overshadowed by its other members in her early career. She started to turn heads, however, with her candid and affable personality when she appeared in “Real Men.”
After her appearance in the reality TV show, her popularity soared and she was signed to endorse a number of products, from instant noodles to clothing.
During a talk show, the 20-year-old said she had recently bought a house for her parents in Songpa, southeastern Seoul.
Hyeri also joined the new drama series “Sunam Girls High School Detectives” on JTBC.
In the mystery drama, which centers around five high school girls, the Girl’s Day star plays Lee Ye-hee, who is obsessed with her looks. The drama series begins airing on Tuesday.
