K-pop female idol Yura of group Girl’s Day will make her acting debut in a Chinese drama starring Jang Woo-hyuk and Kim So-eun, according to her agency Dream T Entertainment.
Dream T said in a press release that Yura will portray a girl in her early twenties who falls in love with the main character Si-young in the Chinese TV series “Secret Angel.” The drama is set to air once a week simultanuously through Chinese portal website sohu.com and Chinese TV networks starting on March 21.
“I am really nervous and excited that I will be starring in a drama with Jang and Kim and I hope that this experience will help me grow as an actress and as a singer,” Yura said in the statement.
In “Secret Angel,” a short ten-part series, a former member of idol group H.O.T, Jang, will play the character of death angel Hwan and actress Kim will play an accident-prone angel named L.
Yura made her debut as a member of Girl’s Day in 2010 with other members Sojin, Jihae, Hyeri and Minah. The girls are currently gearing up to make their comeback to the local music scene next month.
