Moon Geun Young isn’t slowing down any time soon.
The young, twenty-three year old actress was cast in the play “Closer”. Aga Company, the producer of the play, announced that Moon Geun Young would play the character Alice, a stripper who falls in love with an aspiring writer named Dan. Things get complicated as Dan’s feelings start to stray.
An official stated, “She had expressed strong intention of playing the role of Alice and has been participating in the rehearsals enthusiastically since the very beginning.”
The play “Closer” debuted in 1997 in London. It quickly became a huge hit, and was turned into movie in 2004, starring Julia Roberts and Jude Law. It was also translated in thirty languages and shown in more than one hundred cities worldwide.
