Korean actress Sung Yuri will be playing a leading role in a movie for the first time! According to a staff from her management agency Sidus HQ, Sung Yuri has reached an agreement with the production company of “Rabbit and Lizard” and will be playing the leading role in this upcoming movie.
This is not the first time Sung Yuri has participated in a movie though. She acted in both “Emergency 19″ and “How to Keep My Love” in the past, but they were either a cameo or supporting role. A movie leading role is the first time for her.
The plot of “Rabbit and Lizard” revolves around the life of a girl (Sung Yuri) who was adopted by a foreign family at a very young age. She grew up overseas and only returns to South Korea after 23 years in search for her own identity.
To prepare for the movie, Sung Yuri has taken the effort to study the script everyday. “Rabbit and Lizard”, which will be directed by Director Joo Ji Hong, will begin shooting in February.
Definitely a busy first-half for Sung Yuri as she has to make transverse between “Swallow The Sun” and this, but I’m sure she will be able to cope with it.
