Park Sae-eun, a member of the prestigious Paris Opera Ballet, was promoted to the rank of "sujet" on Saturday. This makes her eligible for solo roles.
Park was promoted to coryphée only six months after she became the first Korean member of the world's oldest ballet company in June 2012.
Sujet is the third-highest rank in the dance troupe's five-tier system -- etoile, premier danseur, sujet, coryphee, and quadrille.
