After her supporting roles in dramas “High Kick” and “The Heirs,” it looks like f(x)’s Krystal might be making her next big move as an actress as she finally takes a lead role in the upcoming music romance drama, “My Lovely Girl.”

According to multiple broadcast sources, Krystal will appear as the lead actress in the upcoming SBS drama, “My Lovely Girl.” The Wednesday-Thursday drama is singer-actor Rain’s highly anticipated comeback drama this year.

One source said, “Krystal’s agency is currently in the middle of positively reviewing the proposal for the lead actress role. After Rain’s casting was finalized, (the talks regarding) Krystal’s appearance in the drama is also wrapping up and casting for the major roles is in the final stages.”  Aside from Rain, INFINITE’s L is also confirmed to star in the drama. 

SM C&C has confirmed the buzz regarding Krystal’s appearance in the drama and said, “It’s true that we received a proposal (for Krystal) to appear in the drama. It’s a good opportunity so we are currently carefully considering it.”

Krystal has made her acting debut on 2010 in MBC’s “More Charming by the Day” wherein she took on a supporting role. This was followed by another supporting role in the 2011 sitcom, “High Kick: Revenge of the Short Legged.” Last year, Krystal made an advancement in her acting career as she appeared alongside top stars Lee Min Ho and Park Shin Hye in the drama, “The Heirs.” Her appearance on “My Lovely Girl,” when confirmed, will be the singer-actress’ first lead role since her debut as an actress.

“My Lovely Girl” is a romantic fantasy drama series set against the background of the entertainment industry. It will tell the story of two pained individuals who will find healing through music.

In the drama, Krystal is offered to play the role of Yoon Se Na, a music producer who has lost her mother and sister and has lived a tough life. Her character will forge a working and personal relationship with the perfect guy Hyun Wook, an entertainment agency CEO and producer, played by Rain.

“My Lovely Girl” is slated to air on September 17 after the completion of the drama, “It’s Okay, It’s Love.”
