Astro 'booked and busy' as Rocky, Eunwoo land new gigs and MJ gears up to debut solo
Rocky to act in a new K-drama while Eunwoo has been roped in as the MC for Seoul Drama Awards
Looks like Astro’s members are flying high after the success of their previous comeback that broke several records. From getting a music show win on national TV to dominating music charts, ‘Switch On’ is their best EP yet. And now the members are booked and busy with several individual gigs. Previously, fans were excited for Sanha’s drama where he is hilariously called Big Daddy. And now we will also be getting Rocky acting in a drama while MJ is set to have his solo debut.
The oldest member and the main vocalist of the group MJ, has had several individual gigs from the musical ‘Everybody’s Talking About Jamie’ to hosting variety shows as the MC. He was also part of the trot project group that included the likes of Pentagon’s Hui and second-gen idol A.Cian’s Hyukjin. MJ has shown his love for trot music before during Astro’s second concert when he released the solo song ‘Don’t Do It’.

MJ to debut solo with a trot single
Legendary soloist Young-tak and runner-up of the competition show ‘Mr. Trot’ is said to have worked on the title track of the trot genre. There are reports that MJ will be debuting with it in November. He will be the first Astro member to have an official solo debut. As for Rocky, his is a personal achievement since almost all of Astro are already idol actors. In fact, Astro had a web drama before they debuted where all the members acted.
Rocky gets a drama
With Astro’s label Fantagio also being a production company, the group once again starred in the drama ‘Soul Plate’ in 2019. However, the drama ‘Hyangjeon of Youth’ is Rocky’s first major acting gig that is not to promote Astro. Fans have dubbed Rocky an all-rounder and he continues to prove himself worthy of it. He will be expanding his career as an actor by playing Lee Mongryong. The show has an ensemble cast as it chronicles the struggles and relationships of people in their 20s living in 2021.
Eunwoo as MC for Seoul Drama Awards
Rocky’s character looks like he is perfect with a cold heart but on the inside, he is actually a romantic. Additionally, the drama is said to be an interactive one where viewers can choose how to end the story. ‘Hyangjeon of Youth’ is set to be broadcast in November. The other Astro members are busy too with it being reported on October 14 that along with his movie and upcoming K-dramas, Eunwoo has been roped in as the MC for Seoul Drama Awards 2021. He will be hosting the award show with Park Eunbin.
'Booked and busy'
Happy fans have been trending ‘Actor Rocky’ as they made tweets like, “HE REALLY MEANT IT WHEN HE SAID HE'S NOT OVER ACTOR ROCKY DEBUT!!” “We miss astr- ACTOR ROCKY,” and “Rocky's dream is to be an all-rounded entertainer... just how fast did that escalate?!!! we've got actor rocky news today.” Arohas were also proud of MJ as they posted, “2years ago, MJ said he want to release a trot album.
