Girls’ Generation’s Yoona is taking over both the small and big screen with “Big Mouth” and “Confidential Assignment 2”.
Amid the growing popularity of MBC’s Fri-Sat drama “Big Mouth”, in which Yoona is playing the lead alongside Lee Jong Suk, she is getting ready for a cinema comeback in “Confidential Assignment 2: International.”
“Confidential Assignment 2: International” is a sequel to “Confidential Assignment”, which hit theaters in 2017 and attracted a whopping 7.81 million viewers. In the movie, Yoona plays Min Yeong, Jin Tae’s (Yoo Hae Jin) sister-in-law.
In addition to Yoona, “Confidential Assignment 2: International” stars a powerful lineup of actors including Hyun Bin, Yoo Hae Jin, Jang Young Nam, Jin Seon Gyu and Daniel Henney. As it is set to be released during the Chuseok season, it is expected to enjoy a box office success and surpass the first movie.
Between the 1st and 2nd installment of “Confidential Assignment”, Yoona also succeeded in “Exit” (2019), a comedy disaster film. After “Exit”, expectations are high for Yoona’s performance on the big screen and how she has matured her comic acting in “Confidential Assignment 2: International”.
Yoona’s ongoing drama “Big Mouth” is also drawing much attention by breaking into two-digit viewership ratings. In “Big Mouth”, Yoona is showing her stable acting skills by playing Go Mi Ho, a married nurse. Although this is her first time playing a married woman since debut, Yoona is receiving love from viewers for her natural married couple chemistry with Lee Jong Suk. Her portrayal makes viewers realize how mature Yoona has become as an actress.
Yoona recently made a comeback with Girls’ Generation to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the group’s debut. She is working hard both as an idol singer and an actress. The public is now looking forward to Yoona in “Confidential Assignment 2: International”, whether or not she will succeed in box office and overcome the mark of 10 million admissions that she regrettably could not achieve with “Exit”.
