2NE1's Sandara Park is going to debut as a movie actress. Her first ever film "One Step" is due for release on April 6, while the female idol star plays Sihyun, who loses her memory after being injured in a hit-and-run car accident and can't hear sound due to an incurable disease. I'm sure many fans are really looking forward to the movie.
Well, to say the conclusion first, she did good in the movie. On March 21, there was a press preview of the movie, and I could watch the movie in advance of the official release. She didn't look nervous at all, and she expressed her character naturally. And it's notable that she successfully got into the character even though it was her first ever movie and the character, who has an incurable disease was never easy to play. She showed an impressive singing performance in the movie too. She showed off her beautiful voice by singing and playing the guitar at the same time. I'm sure she proved her potential as an actress through the movie.
So, here's what the director of the movie talked about Sandara Park's acting. He praised highly on her.
I was really happy to work with her. I think she's a well-prepared actress because she memorized the lines perfectly. She is the best rookie actress I've ever worked with. And it was surprising that she made very little mistakes. It's hard for rookie actresses to do such a good job, but she was always thoroughly prepared. Personally, I hope she'll focus on acting rather than singing. Actually, she reminded me of Yoon Gye Sang, who's appeared in my previous movie. Just like him, Sandara Park has a great passion and desire to become a competent actress.
And here's what Sandara Park talked about her first ever movie appearance.
I decided to appear in the movie without hesitation because it's a music film. As it's my first ever film, I was nervous but I was very excited too because I love a challenge. I know I'm still lacking in many things as an actress, but I'll try harder and please give me your support. I hope to show good performance as an actress, and of course, I'll do my best as a singer too.
