Taking a page from SNSD‘s YoonA, fellow member Sooyoung was revealed to have accepted a leading role in an upcoming drama.
Sooyoung was cast in TV Chosun‘s new drama, “Speed“, which delves into the world of competitive race car driving. Sooyoung will play the role of ‘Seo Ji Won‘, an orthopedist and team doctor of racing team ‘CKins’. With her tall height and lovely face, her character is much beloved and respected. Though she’s a cheerful person, her character also carries deep scars from losing her parents in a car accident when she was younger.
The director of “Iris“, director Yang Yun Ho, will be leading this production, which starts filming in December. Sooyoung will be working alongside actors Lee Jung Jae and Yoo Ah In.
The industry is buzzing with anticipation for Sooyoung’s leading role, as she already showed her potential as an actress through the 2008 KBS2TV sitcom, “Unstoppable Marriage“, and the film “Romance Comic“. She also made a short cameo in the SBS drama “Paradise Ranch“.
