Girls' Generation's Yuri will be debuting on the big screen in the role of a swimmer.
She'll be playing the main character in 'No Breathing', a youth sports movie that tells the story of love and rivalry among competitive swimmers. Actress Kang Sora was also considered for the role, but in the end Yuri snagged the spot. She'll be acting with Lee Jong Suk and Seo In Guk.
It'll be her debut on the big-screen, but Yuri has previous acting experience in the drama 'Fashion King'.
The movie will begin filming this month and will be released in theaters in late 2013.
