In the romance flick, the singer will play the lead role of Yun Sheng, the marketing director of a conglomerate who grew up in Europe and puts love on top of everything else. Taiwanese actress Hayden Guo Bi-ting co-stars with Seungri.
“I starred in the movie because I wanted to try something new. I’m greatly excited by the fact the premiere date has been set,” said Seungri via a statement released by the agency.
The upcoming movie, which was filmed two years ago, will hit Chinese theaters on March 2. It will also premiere in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore and Vietnam later.
The Big Bang vocalist expanded into acting by starring in films such as “Nineteen” in 2009 and Japanese movie “High & Low: The Movie” in 2016.
