Park Min-young said on Thursday that she was excited about her screen debut in the horror flick "The Cat," about a woman who becomes consumed by fear after she adopts a cat found at the site of a mysterious death.

"There's a lot of room for improvement [in terms of my acting ability], because this is my first film, but I hope you enjoy it and that the film gets decent reviews this summer," she said at a media preview. The movie is due to be released next Thursday.

"There are so many things I'm doing for the first time today. This is my first preview for my very first film, and I believe this experience will serve me well for the future."

She said she managed to overcome her fear of the genre to accept the part, which she could not resist because the script was so well-plotted.

"Although I have a problem watching horror films, the scenario was so well written and attractive that I decided to do it," she said.
