It looks like Sooyoung’s debut as a main lead in a drama will be put on hold for a while.
Sooyoung will not be taking up the role of the main female lead for TV Joseon’s drama ‘Speed’. A representative of SM Entertainment said, “It has been finally decided that Sooyoung will not be appearing in ‘Speed’. While focusing on Girls’ Generation’s activities for the time being, we will be on the look out for other work and productions for her.”
When the news of Sooyoung being offered the role as the female lead for ‘Speed’ first broke out in November last year, there were positive reviews regarding her appearance in the drama. However, Girls’ Generation had a packed overseas schedule and the production process of ‘Speed’, which was initially planned to kick off its filming back in December last year, was hit with some difficult, unavoidable circumstances.
A broadcasting official stated, “It seems that the contracts with the actors approached for the drama are still pending. Thus, the casting process has yet to be completed and to date, the shooting of the drama has not started. Because of this, Sooyoung’s agency seems to have made the decision to not cast her in the drama.”
Sooyoung showed her potential in acting when she appeared on KBS 2TV’s 2008 sitcom ‘Unstoppable Marriage’ and the movie ‘Hello, Schoolgirl’.

Last week, the ladies of Girls’ Generation performed “The Boys” on top French talk show, ‘Le Grand Journal‘. Earlier today, the girls made another brief appearance on the show.
The girls appeared in the pre-recorded segment, “la boite à question” where they responded to 3 random requests asked by the viewers. The first request was that the girls perform a little bit of “The Boys”. Following that up they answered a question on who the sexiest French celebrity was. Lastly, they were asked to improvise a dialogue between themselves and Jude Law.
