The first stills of miss A‘s Suzy in her latest film “Dorihwaga” has been revealed on October 27.
After her big hit with “Architecture 101” in 2012, Suzy is back to the big screen with a completely different kind of film.
“Dorihwaga” is based on a period when women weren’t allowed to sing pansori (traditional singing). The story focuses on the first-ever female pansori singer in the Joseon period, Jin Chae Sun (Suzy), and her teacher Shin Hae Hyo (Ryu Seung Ryong).
Suzy has practiced pansori for over a year preparing for this film and will be surprising the audience with her talent in satoori (dialect) and cross-dressing acting skills.
She revealed why she’d chosen this role, saying, “I cried when I read the scenario. Chae Sun wants to sing pansori but can’t do it well, and she feels so ashamed of herself. I felt those emotions when I was preparing to debut as a singer. I think I was able to focus well because of this. It’s a lot of pressure to play someone who is the first person to sing pansori in the Joseon period, but I had to pick this project because of its charms.”
Meanwhile, “Dorihwaga” will be coming to theaters on November 25.
