Jeon Young-rok and his daughter Bo-ram

T-ara leader Jeon Bo-ram and her father Jeon Young-rok, himself a hugely popular singer in the 1970s and 80s, have both been cast in the same musical "Crazy for You". The story is based on teen chick lit hit from the 1970s and 1980s, featuring popular songs from the era. It is the first musical for both father and daughter.

Jeon Young-rok debuted in 1976 and was a huge star at the time with numerous hit songs and starred in film "Crazy Boy". "You tend to be forgotten by the public if you don't make TV appearances, but I have always sung in small venues, working on films and music albums. These days, every little thing that teen idol group members do makes headlines, but singers of my age have no means of promoting their albums".

When his daughter said she wanted to be a singer, he did not object. "If she feels that it's the right way for her, then that's the way to go", he said. "I also got those genes from my parents (actor Hwang Hae and singer Baek Seol-hee), and that's about the only thing I got from them". Jeong Bo-ram said, "I liked seeing my dad play the guitar and sing. My voice is also low and husky. Maybe I got it from my dad".

The musical centers around a high-school baseball team, and Young-rok will play the role of the baseball coach while Bo-ram will play the female lead.
