Park Bo-young up for image change in new film

I wouldn’t have pegged these two to co-star in the same project, but Park Bo-young (Werewolf Boy) and idol-actress Gu Hara (City Hunter) are both up for a new movie, roughly translated Hot Blooded Youth. The latest reports state that both stars have agreed to take the film and are in negotiations, so it sounds like they’re close to a deal though not yet final on it. Gu’s participation depends on her schedule with pop group KARA, while Park is waiting for investments to fall into place before signing on the dotted line.

The movie is described as a coming-of-age story showing the “laughter, emotions, and conflicts” of the early eighties generation. That admittedly vague description brings to mind the mega-hit Sunny, though maybe it won’t be quite as (pardon the pun) sunny; Park Bo-young is up to play the leader of the mean girls at school, which would be a rather significant image transformation. The story deals with high schoolers, and she’ll be the leader of the fast set — you know, the popular girls who were pretty, maybe fought a little, and acted tough with forays into drinking and smoking.

Since Park Bo-young has grown up such with a sweet, wholesome image and a budding reputation as a promising young actress, it would be a big (but refreshing) shift to watch her bending that image a bit. And it’ll be amusing to see her being the school jjang when she’s so pint-sized, though I don’t doubt she’s capable of unleashing some intensity. Mainly, I just like watching her act and hope her projects are good ones. Gu Hara… well, I don’t dislike her, though I generally ignored her when she was onscreen for City Hunter. She could be okay?

Hot Blooded Youth will be directed by Lee Yeon-woo of 2009’s Running Turtle; not word yet on its planned filming schedule.

bahaha I was reading and had that same reaction. "...Gu Hara was in City Hunter??? That's weird, I don't remember her." and then a few seconds later it all came screaming back to me. She was that girl... the bratty daughter of.. the president? or whatever.

Haha seriously, Park Bo-young is like 5'2! But then if Taiga (Toradora!) can be badass at 4'11" so can she.

i love Park Bo Young and am so happy to see her in another project (I was actually rooting for her with Lee Min Ho in Heirs) but she's such a wonderful actress...

Hara - no comment.

a kara fan here, but can we get a movie/drama without a single idol in it, please? and give chance to rookie actors/actresses? thanks.

/shot by kara fans and fans of other idols who have gone to into acting.

Generally agree w/ you, but there are some idols who CAN act (AM 1997), as well as some idols who started off as actors.

Big thumbs up on Park Bo-young; however Gu Hara is better off just sticking to her song and dance routines.

Gu hara has the kind of park su jin-esque face that kinda bothers me but I can't pinpoint why exactly. Heck, I don't really care about her but I'm definitely all in for Park Bo Young!
