Singer and actor Lee Hye-ri -- also known as Hyeri from Girl’s Day -- is starring in director Park Beom-soo’s “Victory,” the country’s first ever film on cheerleaders.
Along with Lee, actors Park Se-wan and Cho Ah-ram and six other actors will star as a nine-member cheerleading group called Millennium Girls.
“Victory” revolves around Pil-seon (Hyeri) and Mina (Park Se-wan) who form a high school cheerleading club.
Hyeri’s acting career took off with tvN drama “Reply 1998” (2015). Since then, she starred in several genre dramas and films including “My Roommate Is a Gumiho” (2021) and “My Punch-Drunk Boxer” (2019).
Actor Park Se-wan, known for her work in the 2019 MBC drama “Never Twice,” recently appeared in comedy film “6/45” (2022).
"Victory" filming began Saturday.
