T-ara Jiyeon, "My schedule was murderous"

Posted by nearnine July 15, 2010

T-ara's Jiyeon talks about the first half of 2010, the busiest time of her life.

At that time she was both shooting the KBS 2TV drama "God of Study" and busy doing activities promoting T-ara's "Bo Peep Bo Peep". Her schedules began overlapping.

On this subject Jiyeon said, "I felt sorry towards my unnies the most," she said.

In a recent interview Jiyeon said, "It was a murderous schedule. 'Bo Peep Bo Peep' activities and 'God of Study' recording overlapped and there were many times I was unable to appear on stage as a T-ara member," she confessed.

"Everything was more difficult because of the scheduling," Jiyeon said, "The members felt sorry for the difficult time I was having. I couldn't even make rehearsal for dance practice a lot of times, or go up on stage which gave me a burden," she said feeling sorry for the other members.

Following, "We weren't living harmoniously/living the same schedule. A lot of times I was left alone and felt lonely and was sad about missing out on stuff. I couldn't even make the interviews because I needed to rest," she uttered with tears in her eyes.

Jiyeon being only 17 years of age, works nearly twice as much as adults. "But I knew I could not abandon my dream of acting. I wanted to somehow be recognized for it. I wanted to be able to showcase spectacular performances and give a 180 degree change in acting.

Jiyeon is currently promoting her new movie, "Death Bell 2". It's scheduled release is on the 28th of July.

T-ara's Jiyeon from the movie, "Death Bell 2" was found today imitating her high school life by eating both ddukboki (spicy rice cake) and eating tempura (?).

In a recent interview with Newsen, Jiyeon said to the reporter, "I'm hungry, can I not eat anything? I want to eat ddukboki," she said with a shy smile.

While eating she said, "In school with my friends, I used to always eat ddukboki after class and relax. I thought I'd like doing that again, but it's not easy to do anymore. After becoming an idol, there's no stop!"

Jiyeon made her debut as an idol at 16 year olds while in high school. At such a young age, she wasn't able to have experience a lot of things most kids her age do or have the same memories.

"All the friends I had in middle school are still my friends, but I do not get a chance to see them a lot. Because of my unique personality, I actually did not have a lot of friends. I always wanted to make more friends, I guess."

Jiyeon wasn't able to have a normal high school experience. 'School field trips' and 'retreats' were something she was never able to do or have memories of.

"I love my unnies (older sisters, aka T-ara) and my living quarters, but because I'm such a young age I never was able to go on school field trips with my friends. I've always wanted to visit a fun place on a school field trip. The two friends that will always be my friend are my brother and sister, we always talk."

Jiyeon said, "I'm happy I have a lot of memories with T-ara." Being a combination of an actress and a singer is not easy, but being the greedy high school girl she is, this is what she dreamed of becoming.

Currently, Jiyeon is promoting her movie, "Death Bell 2". It's scheduled to be released July 28th.
