Korean actress Soo Ae [Star J Entertainment]
Korean actress Soo Ae has joined the cast of upcoming action TV series "ATHENA", the sequel to last year's hit blockbuster drama "IRIS", according to the show's producer Taewon Entertainment on Friday.
"ATHENA", named after the Greek goddess of war strategy, will be about terrorist acts and threats against the Korean Peninsula and the whole world.
"Soo Ae will be playing Yoon Hye-in, the lead female character who is a double agent working for both the National Intelligence Service and as a spy for a secret organization", a producer from Taewon explained.
They added that Soo Ae was chosen for the role because of her extraordinary acting skills and ability to subtly express many emotions.
The actress will start receiving martial arts training after wrapping up filming of her thriller film tentatively titled "Midnight FM".
Production for "ATHENA" is scheduled to begin in June in Italy and Switzerland and continue on into six other countries including Singapore and New Zealand. Taewon is aiming at showing the series during the latter half of this year.
