South Korean pop star BOA is set to make her acting debut in a new Hollywood dance movie.
The singer, real name Kwon Bo-A, will star in an as-yet-untitled film directed by Save the Last Dance screenwriter Duane Adler.
BoA, 23, has risen to pop superstardom in East Asia since emerging in the music industry in 2000.
She has sold more than 20 million records to date but she is now looking to make her mark as an actress and will fly to New York to shoot the project early next year (11).
Last year (09), BoA was tipped as one of Asia's most promising young stars by industry publication The Hollywood Reporter.
