MOST Asian actresses would decline or at least think twice about removing their clothes on screen.
South Korean actress and singer Nana, however, thinks that having to expose her chest in the upcoming crime thriller The Swindlers is not such a big deal.
“My character Chun Ja is a con artist and she would do anything to accomplish her goals,” she said, according to a South Korean news portal.
“That’s why I figured she wouldn’t mind going topless. As an actress, it’s something I have to do to bring that character to life.”
Well-known for her sexy and stunning figure, and good looks, Nana is expected to leave a mark in the South Korean film industry when The Swindlers premieres next week.
The film revolves around unlikely allies from different sides of the law, who must work together to bring down the world’s most legendary con man.
Featuring an A-list cast that includes Hyun Bin, Yoo Ji-tae and Park Sung-woong, it marks Nana’s debut as a female lead in a film.
Nana, 26, made headlines last year for her acting debut in the South Korean adaptation of the United States series The Good Wife, in which she played a bisexual law firm researcher.
The artiste, whose real name is Im Jin-ah and is a member of K-Pop girl group After School, took home Best Rookie Award For An Actress In Television at last year’s Asia Artist Awards for her portrayal.
