    Nam Gyu-ri, a former member of defunct girl group SeeYa, has returned to the big screen with a mystery thriller.

    In the film "Déjà vu" released this week, Nam plays a woman who is drawn into a situation where she can no longer trust anybody amidst a series of incomprehensible events taking place around her.

    The singer-turned-actress had a successful acting debut in 2010. But Nam said she still has a passion for singing. "I enjoy singing," Nam said. "I sometimes go to a karaoke bar even by myself. I still miss the time when I was a singer."

    But she said she feels she made some progress in her acting career, compared to all the struggles she faced during the early years when she had no idea what she was getting into.

    "At the time, I couldn't think about other things as I was just too busy with my role," she recalled. "Now, I try to work in harmony with staff and co-actors."

    "I don't care whether it is a big or a small role. I want to play a character that can bring out a new side of me. I don't want to be satisfied with certain stereo-typed or simple pretty-faced roles deemed to be well-fitted by most viewers," said Nam. "I am sure that there is a certain role that only I can nail."
