Actor and singer Hyeri gearing up to shoot new tvN reality show
Actor and singer Hyeri will make her way back to the small screen for a new reality show set to air next year.
According to Hyeri's agency Creative Group ING on Wednesday, she is gearing up to begin shooting for a new tvN reality show with television producer Lee Tae-kyung.
She previously worked with Lee during tvN’s ongoing weekly variety show “Amazing Saturday,” which she featured on from 2018 to 2020.
She left the show in November 2020 to focus on her acting career, according to a statement made by her agency at the time. She was succeeded by Taeyeon of girl group Girls’ Generation.
Since then, Hyeri has starred in several drama series such as tvN's "My Roommate Is a Gumiho" (2021), KBS's "Moonshine" (2021) and MBC's "May I Help You" (ongoing).
Hyeri has been a popular star on television shows since 2014, when she appeared on MBC reality show “Real Men." “Real Men” was a TV show where some half-a-dozen celebrities experienced military life. It ran for two seasons from 2013 to 2016.
Hyeri showed a youthful and cute, otherwise called aegyo in Korean, side of herself during her stint on the show, which went viral at the time. For her appearance on the reality show, she won the Best Female Newcomer award at the 2014 MBC Entertainment Awards.
Hyeri debuted as the youngest member of girl group Girl’s Day in October 2020. The girl group has released hits such as “Female President” (2013), “Something” (2014), “Darling” (2014) and “Ring My Bell” (2015). Though it has not officially disbanded, the group has not released new music since 2019 and its four members — Hyeri, Yura, Sojin and Minah — are now all represented by different agencies.
Hyeri debuted as an actor in 2012, through SBS weekend drama series “Tasty Life.” Her breakthrough role as an actor was as a lead in tvN drama series “Reply 1988” which premiered in November 2015. She has acted in over a dozen drama series and two movies.
