Nana, whose real name is Im Jin-ah, will be making her big screen debut in Taiwanese romantic comedy “Go Lala Go 2” alongside famed Chinese stars Vic Chou and Ariel Lin.
On Monday (1st June), Pledis Entertainment announced her involvement in the film, stating:
Nana has already started filming the movie, and the filming is expected to go on until the beginning of July. She is currently focusing on commercials and movies, but we are also planning to have variety show appearances in the future.
The stunning singer/actress will be playing a huge role in the movie, as she has been confirmed to take up one of the lead roles. No other details regarding her character have been revealed as of yet.
“Go Lala Go 2” is the sequel to 2010’s “Go Lala Go”, a hit romantic film that featured Karen Mok, Stanley Huang, Pace Wu, Li Ai, Alice Wang, and actor-director Xu Jinglei. The sequel will be chronicling the life of Go Lala, a “modern Cinderella” who experiences the fun and adventurous life of working in an office.
Just a few days ago, Nana was spotted posting a selfie on her Weibo along with co-star Vic Chou. It was uploaded along with the message, “I’m filming in Shanghai right now, what about you?” Fans were curious about the production but it seems like their questions have been answered.
Several movie stills were released on the movie’s official Weibo account, but Nana clearly wasn’t in the photos. It remains to be seen what character she will take on and where she will fit in the storyline.
Take a look at the stills here:
This isn’t the first time that Nana has acted in a Chinese project as she previously appeared in Dragon TV’s fashion reality show “Muse Dress” and Hunan TV’s television drama “Love Weaves Through a Millennium”.
Quite an amount of Korean artistes have made their names in the Chinese market too, most notably Lee Min Ho, Jun Ji Hyun, and Kim Soo Hyun. It’s understandable, as it is a very lucrative market, catering to the 1.4 billion people residing in China.
