Krystal

Krystal Jung (Korean name: Jung Soo Jung), better known mononymously as Krystal, is an American-born South Korean idol singer and actress. Discovered by SM Entertainment in 2000, she began filming for commercials and music videos by 2002. She is currently a member of the Korean quintet girl group f(x), formed by SM Entertainment in 2009.
Krystal was born in San Francisco, California, where her family from South Korea settled in the 1980s. During a family trip to South Korea in early 2000 when Krystal was five, she was spotted by talent agency SM Entertainment, which earned her a cameo appearance in Shinhwa's "Wedding March" music video. The agency saw potential in Krystal and offered her singing and dancing lessons, opting to professionally train her in a singing career. However, the offer was turned down by her parents, reasoning that Krystal was too young. Instead, her parents allowed her older sister Jessica Jung to join the agency, who debuted as a member of girl group Girls' Generation in August 2007.
In 2002, Krystal began appearing in television commercials. She first appeared in a Lotte commercial with Korean actress Han Ga In. In 2006, her parents allowed her to join SM Entertainment, and the agency enrolled her in dance classes, including hip hop and jazz.

    People saying she can't act are ridiculous, she's pretty good. I'd love for her to act in a movie with a "rural feel" like Steel Cold Winter or A Werewolf Boy, I think she'd really shine in that type of movie. In Legend of the Blue Sea, she's wearing lipstick / colored lipgloss and huge earrings, and you can just feel it's not her at all (and I know since I follow her, she doesn't wear stuff like that in real life). So a movie where she's more natural and doesn't have to act in excessive manner would be great for her imo.

    I like her acting, also I like Suzy's acting.
    I don't understand why some people said that they can't act.
    Well, yes THEY CAN. You're not professional actor or expert or someone to say things like that. And at least be polite.
