K-pop girl group T-ara member Hyomin has been cast in a new Japanese film.

Her agency Core Contents Media said through a press release on Wednesday that she was offered the lead role in new film “JINX!!!,” also starring Japanese actors Kurumi Shimizu and Kento Yamazaki.

The film cranked up in March and will open in Japanese theaters this November, her agency added.
