Shin Ah Cast to Star in Chinese Drama

Rising star Shin Ah has been cast to play the lead in the Chinese drama "Golf Girl", emerging as a promising hallyu star. Shin held a press conference on June 15 at a golf club in Beijing, China that was attended by over 100 local reporters and broadcast throughout China by the country's largest broadcaster, CCTV.

"Golf Girl", a 20-episode drama whose production begins this coming October, will air in China in February of next year. In the story, Shin plays "Lutsyou", a sassy student who learns golf from her father, an ardent golf fan. But when he dies after his business goes bankrupt, she learns from his journal that one of his friends played a role in his untimely death, and decides to avenge her father.

Shin willingly accepted the offer to star in the drama, saying it is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. She is currently taking golf and Chinese-language and acting classes in preparation for her new role. Sources at the actress's agency have expressed worry that she may get exhausted even before she leaves for China.

It is quite unprecedented that Shin, a novice actress not well known even in her home country, has landed a role in a Chinese drama so soon after her debut. All eyes are on whether she will create another hallyu sensation in China.
