Child actress Kim Yoo Jung — who you may remember for her role as young Yeon Woo in The Moon That Embraces the Sun — has been cast in the upcoming film Elegant Lies. Kim Yoo Jung will be playing Hwa Young, a girl who appears to be a nice person on the outside, who in reality enjoys torturing a “friend” of hers.

If you’re a fan of historical dramas, then you already know that Kim Yoo Jung is the queen of child actresses when it comes to historical dramas. She’s been in pretty much everything from Iljimae to Tamra, The Island. Now thirteen years, old she’s been in a range of dramas including May Queen starring Kim Jae Won, but she’s never played an evil, bad egg of a character until now. I think it’s great that she’s finally getting to experiment with new types of characters and broaden her acting range.

Elegant Lies is expected to be released next year.
