Kang's management agency YG Entertainment said Kang Hye-jung has been cast in the film to be directed by Korean-American film director Christine Yoo. The romantic comedy is about the life of a couple from two different cultural backgrounds who meet in Los Angeles and get married.

Korean-American actor Brian Tee, who appeared in "Fast and the Furious", will also star. The film will be produced by TU Productions, jointly founded by Yoo and Tee.

YG Entertainment said Yoo decided to cast the Korean actress after watching "Welcome to Dongmakgol" and "Old Boy", two acclaimed Korean films starring Kang. Yoo said Kang's distinctly Korean beauty grabbed her attention.

The film shoot will begin in LA late September. Most of the scenes will be shot in the United States and some of it will be filmed in Korea.
