Ham Eun-jung will lead the new movie I Will Song, her agency Cabin 74 confirmed via news reports.
I Will Song (working title) is described as a film that will center on the process of healing emotional wounds and overcoming personal struggles.
Ham Eun-jung will essay the role of Mul Gyeol, an aspiring singer who seems to have forgotten the meaning of life. Ham will reportedly act alongside Gu Won (Insane), who will play Ba Ram, a film director who will meet Mul Gyeol by chance.
In response to her casting, the singer-actress shared, “[I will portray] a character that I’ve never played before, so I’m excited and nervous. I will work hard so that I can show a good performance as Mul Gyeol, who wants to be filled with hope as she tries to overcome her pain and heal.” She also expressed her desire to put the film’s message across well. “I hope that the film gives viewers the courage to chase after their dreams instead of feeling frustrated.”
Ham Eun-jung’s first venture into the industry was an appearance in the 1995 KBS drama A New Generation of Adults. While Ham originally trained as an actress and followed her debut project with other films and dramas, she shifted to music in 2009 and became a member of the girl group T-ara (on hiatus). She then went back to her acting roots in 2011, bagging a notable main role in the award-winning youth series Dream High that boosted her popularity. She last starred in the thriller film Missing 2 (2017) and the fantasy series Lovely Horribly (2018).
I Will Song, helmed by Lee Sang-hoon, is scheduled to crank up its production this October.
