Yuri cast as Lee Jong-seok and Seo In-gook’s love interest
It’s a dirty job, but somebody’s gotta do it. The new sports movie No Breathing starring Lee Jong-seok (School 2013) and Seo In-gook (Answer Me 1997) as rival swimmers has finally locked in a confirmation for a leading lady in Girls’ Generation idol Kwon Yuri. This will be her first major starring role in a film, after playing the second lead in last year’s Fashion King.
You guys’ll have to tell me how she did, because I didn’t stick around long enough to see her in that drama. She did win a few popularity awards for the role, which were pretty much the only awards that drama will ever be associated with, but that only tells me she has lots of fans, which I already knew.
No Breathing comes from the writer of The Gift of Room 7 and Korea, and stars Lee Jong-seok as the golden boy swimmer who always comes in first, and Seo In-gook as the “genius swimmer” (snicker) who purposely stays away from swimming. Yuri plays an aspiring musician with a carefree personality who grew up with the boys as children. The three of them are lifelong friends who suddenly find themselves having to juggle love, friendship, and competition, all at once. That actually sounds really cute in a Last Match kind of way. Why is this not a drama??
The movie starts shooting next week for a release later this year, which is crazy since Lee Jong-seok has a drama starting in three weeks. Guess we’re not the only ones using the gateway to the fourth dimension around here.
