New film role for Lee Chae-young


Actress Lee Chae-young has been confirmed to be taking part in the Korean-Chinese film, “The Day of Inversion,” according to the 29-year-old’s talent agency on Thursday.

“Lee will be playing the role of a detective, who works on the same team with actor Lee Jung-jae [who stars in the film],” the agency said. “The first shooting of the film is expected to take place in mid-July.”

News of the movie went viral on the Internet after a slew of reports regarding actor Lee’s participation in the project were disclosed in April. It also started receiving more attention after top Chinese actor Chung Hon-leung was confirmed to be starring in the film.

Lee debuted in 2003 by appearing in a music video for the hip-hop group Turtles. She continued starring in various music videos for popular songs such as “I Do” by Rain and “Did You Forget It” by Yoon Mi-rae.

Lee extended her activities to acting in 2007. She appeared in several TV dramas such as “Iron Empress” (2009), “Royal Family” (2011) and “Maids” (2015). The actress has also appeared on the silver screen, including in “The Grand Heist” (2012) and “Secretly, Greatly” (2013).
