Two popular roles of hit dramas "Goblin" and "Descendants of the Sun" were almost in the bag of former T-Ara member Hwayoung. Hwayoung revealed on tvN's "Taxi" that she almost played the role of Yoo In Na in "Goblin" and Kim JI Won's character in "Descendants of the Sun."

The 25-year-old rapper-actress said: "I auditioned for Kim Ji Won's role in 'Descendants of the Sun' but I didn't make it. I was also in talks with scriptwriter Kim Eun Sook and the director about playing Yoo In Na sunbaenim's role in 'Goblin' but it fell apart at the end because I didn't fit the age range (of the character)," all K-pop quoted.

In the drama Goblin, Yoo In Na played Kim Sun, who is also known as Sunny, goblin Kim Shin's sister. Kim Sun was also Goryeo King, Wang Yeo's reincarnated royal bride and romantic partner of the Grim Reaper (played by Lee Dong Wook).

In the popular 2015 series "Descendants of the Sun", Kim Ji Won was seen playing the role of First Lieutenant Yoon Myeong Ju who is in love with Sergeant First Class Seo Dae Young or Wolf, played by Jin Goo.

The hosts of the show also asked the rapper about the controversial issue of bullying among the members of the girl group T-Ara referring to Hwayoung exit from the group in 2012 for allegedly being severely bullied.

AllKpop quoted the rapper-actress: "When I think about it now, it's something that could easily happen in a group of women. I only worked as a singer, and I didn't know how to behave in society." She further added, "I cried a lot shut up in my room. I also lost a lot of weight."

However, T-Ara's former manager and staff members spoke up about the incident and said that Hwayoung was just playing a victim.
