2PM member Junho will be appearing in the movie “Hyeopnyeo,” directed by Park Heung-shik, alongside Korean film stars Lee Byung-hun, Chun Do-yeon and Kim Go-eun.

A specific role for the boy band member has not been revealed yet, but the production team announced that official filming for the movie will begin in September.

This will not be the first time Junho has made an on-screen appearance. He made his film debut playing the role of the host of a music show in horror flick “White: The Melody of the Curse” in 2011. He gained acclaim for his most recent role in “Cold Eyes,” which opened in July, as the confident and likable youngest member of a surveillance team.

“Hyeopnyeo,” set in the last days of the Goryeo (918-1392) period, revolves around a female master swordsman, Seollang (Jeon Do-hyun), who hides her identity and raises her child Seolhee for the sole purpose of taking revenge. The subject of Seollang’s vendetta is Deokgi (Lee Byung-hun), who schemes to ascend to the throne. The film explores what happens when the three cross paths for the first time in 18 years.

“Hyeopnyeo” is slated for theaters next year.
