BoA Kickstarts Her Domestic Acting Career with “Big Match” to Positive Reviews


Singer BoA made her domestic screen debut with “Big Match” to positive reviews. Action films demand much more than just good acting from an actress, and BoA exceeded expectations with her professionalism.

In “Big Match,” BoA captured viewers with her fluency in the action scenes. She held her own as the only female actor in the action scenes, impressing viewers with her energy, power, and expressiveness.

BoA explained, “I have long received acting offers, but at the time I was so involved in my music that I could not seriously consider acting. However, after participating in the Hollywood movie “Make Your Move,” I developed an interest in acting.”

She plays the role of the mysterious Soo Kyung who, under the orders of the Ace (Shin Ha Kyun), guides the protagonist Choi Ik Ho (Lee Jung Jae) to his next mission. To prepare for the role, BoA underwent special action training for five months before filming.

Lee Jung Jae commented, “I know of BoA as a singer who ever since she was little devoted herself to her craft. She has that in common with the character Soo Kyung. When BoA comes to set, you can tell she has practiced a lot. She is truly a professional.”
