Former K-pop singer and actress Jung Ryeo-won is poised to advance to Hollywood.

According to press reports, Jeong, 27, visited the United States last month and met with officials from an unidentified Hollywood studio. She was also courted by Hollywood last year but this is the first time that she has had a meeting in connection with her entry into Hollywood.

A local movie expert praised Jeong, saying, "She is highly qualified to enter the United States for acting".

An official from Jeong's agency confirmed her Hollywood plan and said, "She will also be active in South Korea".

Some South Korean and Korean American actors such as Kim Yunjin, Lee Byung-hun, Daniel Henney and Jang Dong-gun are now active in Hollywood.

Jeong, a former member of the girl group Chakra, immigrated into Australia during her childhood and returned to South Korea in 1999. She drew attention in 2005 when she made a successful debut as a TV actress in MBC TV's "My Name is Kim Sam-soon". She, along with actress Kim Sun-ah, made the soap one of the greatest hit dramas that year.
