Dal★Shabet’s Jiyul to play a pregnant woman in ‘PaPa’
Dal★Shabet member Jiyul will be making a surprise appearance in the film ‘PaPa’.
‘PaPa’, which will premiere on February 1st, 2012, stars Park Yong Woo and Go Ara, and Jiyul will also be appearing as a pregnant woman.
Jiyul will transform into a completely different person from how she’s portrayed on stage. She’ll leave behind her sexy and cute ways shown on stage in music shows to become a mature woman who’s looking forward to giving birth soon.
A rep from Jiyul’s agency, Happy Face Entertainment, recently told enews, “Jiyul is a member that’s talented not only in singing, but also in acting. Because she’s wanted to take on acting, she practiced her acting skills regularly for a long time.”
Jiyul starred in the music video for “That Man, That Woman” sung by 4MEN and MI in 2011, and was praised for her emotional acting. More recently, she starred in the music video for “Hit U”, a single by her own group, Dal★Shabet, as a saddened girl who ruthlessly shoots at her boyfriend with the two guns in her hands.

“Out of the dark, oh yeah~~~!! ♥ The Reason We Became Witches is so we can Hit U, ah. Jackpot!!! ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Thank you for the support you’ve been showing for Hit U♥♥Please be careful outside and don’t catch cold!! Love you all♥~~*^^*”

Dal★Shabet‘s Ah Young laughed with embarrassment after she saw a screencap of her ‘unibrow’ from the group’s performance on KBS‘s ‘Music Bank’.
The girl group gave their all during a hot performance of their new song, “Hit U”, as they danced, strutted, and belted out notes in leopard-print outfits.
Yet despite their impressive performance, viewers couldn’t help but chuckle over a particular close-up of Ah Young. A long strand of hair got caught on her eyebrows, making it seem as if Ah Young had spontaneously grown an unibrow.
After the performance, Ah Young shared the screencap and lamented, “I didn’t even realize I looked like this on the broadcast.. *sigh* Why wasn’t I aware of this? Ah, I’m upset, but why am I laughing?”
Netizens commented, “You’re still pretty, Ah Young!”, “Omo.. I didn’t even recognize you unni”, and “It’s okay, your performance was still great.”
