Idol singer snapped up by Kim Ki-duk
According to OhMyNews on Friday, Lee will take the lead in “Actor is an Actor,” a film about a superstar who hits rock bottom. Although Lee’s agency said it’s not official, internet media are saying that Lee is a sure bet.
Although the Golden Lion award-winning director Kim is the producer, the film’s director will be Shin Yeon-shik whose work includes “The Russian Novel” and “Fair Love” (2009).
This will be Kim’s third movie as producer, following “Rough Cut” (2008) and “Poongsan” (2011).
Meanwhile, Lee has also dabbled in acting from time to time, most recently taking part in MBC’s mock-reality show “We Got Married,” posing as the pretend spouse of actress Oh Yeon-seo and acting as the teenage version of singer Rain’s character in “Ninja Assassin” (2009).
The 24-year-old singer with a penchant for acting has also been cast to star in the sequel to hit-drama “Iris,” which will air next year.
