So Hee seems destined for her movie role in her debut movie, “I Like It Hot” because in the original comic, “10, 20 and 40” from which the movie was adapted from, the comic character image mirrors the real So Hee in real life.
Her selection for the movie was because of So Hee’s canny resemblance to the character. According to the production company, they knew So Hee was in Wonder Girls but the latter wasn’t that popular back then and this was not their criteria for picking her anyway. Many new faces auditioned for So Hee’s role but they were rejected and So Hee was picked instead because she was closest to how the production wanted for that character look.
“I Like it Hot” will be shown in Korea starting January 17, 2008.
