    Hye-ri, a member of K-pop girl group Girls Day, is set to make her big screen debut with a historical action thriller next week.

    In the film "Monstrum," set in the Chosun Dynasty, she plays a brave young woman who struggles to fight against a mysterious creature who haunts the royal palace.


    Hye-ri, who impressed viewers with her great potential as an actress after the explosive popularity of her first TV series "Reply 1988" a few years ago, said that when shooting began she initially doubted whether she could successfully play the role.

    "I wasn't sure if I would fit the role in a period film at first. But that doubt and worry only motivated me more, so during shooting I was both nervous and excited," she said.

    "Many movies portray women as weak or helpless, but this film was not like that. That’s one of the reasons I found the film of interest," she added.

    The film is set to hit local theaters on Sept. 12.
