Girls’ Generation member Seohyun will be starring in a Chinese film entitled “I Married An Anti-Fan.”
According to Kpop Starz, the 24-year-old singer will be head over heels in love with EXO’s own Chanyeol. The “It’s Okay Even If It Hurts” K-pop artist will portray an idol novice opposite the 22-year-old rapper.
The Chinese movie is an adaptation of a “webtoon” novel with Seohyun playing the secondary female lead role. Yuan Shanshan of Palace II fame will play the primary female lead role. Chinese actor Yuan Shan has also been cast.
“I Married An Anti-Fan” tells about an embittered entertainment female reporter who marries the pop idol who brought about her unemployment after she gets fired from her media job. Their feud though began when the reporter took a photo of the celebrity ditching a girl which greatly annoyed him.
The movie will be Seohyun’s first full-length debut as mentioned in K Drama Stars. Seohyun’s previous movie-related endeavors were for Universal Pictures’ “Despicable Me” film franchise in which she dubbed the voice of Edith.
She took on the lead role for the musicals “The Moon Embracing The Sun” and “Gone With The Wind.” She will then continue her theater experience in another key role for next year’s “Mamma Mia!”. Seohyun also had brief stints in the television dramas “The Producers” and “Warm and Cozy.”
