Actor Yim Si-wan to star in filmThe next project for singer-actor Yim Si-wan is a film tentatively titled “One Line.”
OSEN, an online entertainment news agency, reported on Sunday that the 27-year-old actor recently signed a contract to appear in the film.
The film will be about insurance fraud, and Yim’s character takes the lead in the scheme.
The production team for the film is reportedly casting supporting actors and it will begin shooting in December.
Yim debuted in the music scene in 2010 as a member of the boy band ZE:A, but he failed to rise to fame in the beginning of his career. But as he began acting, he started to make a name for himself. Of all the TV dramas and films he has appeared in, the drama series “Misaeng,” an office drama that centers on jungle-like company politics in Korea, has been the biggest hit.
In the series, Yim played the role of Jang Geu-rae, an average Joe who landed a job at a trading company as a temporary worker.
After the drama series, Yim reportedly signed endorsement deals which are estimated to be worth about 2 billion won ($1.8 million).
