ZE:A's Im Si Wan will be making his big screen debut with actor Song Kang Ho.
The singer will be joining the cast of the film The Attorney.
An official told enews on February 8, "Im Si Wan recently confirmed he would be appearing in The Attorney. He will start shooting in March."
Im Si Wan has been meeting with producers actively since January after receiving the offer. He recently decided to accept the role.
In the film, he will appear as the son of a restaurant owner that used to serve free meals to Song Kang Ho when he was young and poor. Song Kang Ho will then defend Im Si Wan, who grows up to become the member of an activist group, as his attorney.
The official added, "The producers wanted someone who is good at the Busan dialect. Im Si Wan is from Busan, and he had the looks and acting skills they wanted, so that's how he was cast for the role."
Im Si Wan became an instant success with his role in MBC's The Sun and the Moon. He went on to appear in KBS2's The Equator Man.
The Attorney is about a civil rights lawyer in the 1980s.
