Lee Na-young takes transgender character to High Kick
Lee Na-young is making the most of her upcoming cameo appearance on MBC’s hit sitcom High Kick Through the Roof, because not only this an unusual television appearance for her, the part also happens to be male. Though the character has nothing to do with her upcoming movie role Dad Likes Women, this is a neat way to promote both appearances, since she sports a similar manly look in the movie, where she plays a post-op (male-to-female) transsexual.
In her first time back on television in six years (her last drama was 2004’s Ireland), Lee will play the older brother to cast regular Hwang Jung-eum. The character is brought on by Jung-eum to fix some bad habits of Jung-joon (Yoon Shi-yoon).
Lee’s cameo will air on January 12; her romantic-comedy family film Dad Likes Women releases on January 14.
