Girls’ Generation Sooyoung Passes Role on Upcoming Drama "Speed"


Girls’ Generation Sooyoung’s drama debut has been pushed back! Currently the Girls’ Generation members are busy with their acting careers. Jessica appears on the drama “Wild Romance.” Yuri will be appearing on “Fashion King.” YoonA will play one of the lead roles on “Love Rain.”

Sooyoung was supposed to play a cheerful character who had lost her parents in a car accident. However, SM Entertainment stated that she would not appear in the drama. Instead, she would focus on Girls’ Generation activities and look for other projects.

Filming for the drama was supposed to begin in December. However, problems occurred in the production process thus it appears that SM Entertainment made the decision to pass the role.

An anonymous broadcasting source stated, “’Speed’ did not have any contracts signed with the stars that were approached. Filming hasn’t even begun yet. That is probably why Sooyoung’s agency made the decision to decline the role.”
