"It was hard for me to switch back and forth as a singer and an actor. I started acting when 2PM was in its prime.   Back then, I was exhausted since it wasn't really what I wanted to do. But it's not like that anymore.  Now that I actually want to act, I feel a sense of greater responsibility," - Taecyeon.

2PMs Taecyeon Discusses Acting, Breaking Into U.S. Market Someday, And Military Enlistment

An idol for 10 years and actor for eight, Taecyeon is full of motivation right now. As hes already reached No. 1 as an idol, Taecyeon is ready to actively progress as an actor as well. Although he still has his military service in front of him, his determination is fierce and encompasses his desire to expand into the United States as well.

It was hard to act while completing my activities as a singer at the same time. I started acting at the peak of 2PMs popularity and activities. At the time, I didnt start acting because I wanted to – I was more tired then. Its not like that anymore. Now that I act because I want to do it, I feel a greater sense of responsibility.
