Victoria of f(x) to star in movie My New Sassy Girl
Victoria Song of f(x) has been confirmed to star in the movie My New Sassy Girl, the sequel to Jeon Ji Hyun's popular 2001 movie, My Sassy Girl. She will co-star with the original male lead, Cha Tae Hyun.
Since the new movie is about a "new sassy girl," the plot is focused on the male lead, Cha Tae Hyun, who is re-united with his childhood and first love (Victoria) after losing his other sassy girl (Jeon Ji Hyun.) Victoria's character is described as Cha's elementary school classmate who was often teased for her broken Korean. The movie will explore their romance and problems after they get married.
All eyes will be on Victoria's performance in the new movie, as Jeon Ji Hyun really shined in the 2001 movie My Sassy Girl and made it one of the highest-grossing Korean comedies of all time. My Sassy Girl was also popular in other Asian countries.
