Sulli of the girl group f(x) has signed on to play a pirate in the upcoming blockbuster film "Pirates." She has been cast as Heuk Myo, one of the swashbuckling crewmembers on the film's Joseon-era pirate ship.
Sulli, who is currently promoting the f(x) single "Rum Pum Pum Pum," is now an idol star but she actually started out as an actress. She began acting when she was only 11, playing Princess Sun Hwa in the SBS drama "The Ballad of Seo Dong." She had a cameo appearance in "Love Needs A Miracle" and then played the childhood love of Park Yoo Chun in the theatrical drama "Vacation." In 2007 she had roles in "Punch Lady" and "The Flower Girl Is Here."
In 2012, she played the leading role in "To The Beautiful You," the Korean version of "Hana Kimi," alongside SHINee's Choi Minho.
The role in "The Pirates" will be Sulli's first film role since her part in the 2008 film "Babo." After her "To The Beautiful You" role, in which she played a girl pretending to be a boy, she did express some desire to expand the types of roles she played.
