Son Dambi who has been active lately promoting her new song “Crazy” will be in a Hollywood movie as the main actress. Son Dambi has been casted in “Hype Nation” which will be produced by Universal Studios and it’s a remarkable achievement considering it would be only her first debut acting gig.
Son Dambi will be acting opposite former B2K member, Omarion. In America, B2K, (Boys of the New Millennium) are highly popular as singers since their debut and their 2004 film “You Got Served” won them a huge following.
According to Sony BMG for why Son Dambi was chosen for the movie, “The storyline revolves around dancing and she was picked as the female lead because of her stand-out dancing ability. According to the local producers over there, she definitely has the face to attract attention in America.”
They added, “Son Dambi has been thinking about acting before she became a singer. But we never expected her first be an American movie. We had many offers prior to this but we had to be careful because it was her first acting role. Omarion and B2K enjoys high popularity in the States and thus this will be an advantage at the box-office, and puts less pressure on Dambi.”
Son Dambi had taken dance lessons before from international choreographer Miss Prissy, who is also known as the “Queen of Krump” and won praise for her dancing ability. Dambi is thus able to converse in simple english. Over the course of filming, her English will be worked on to make it sound better.
Production staff for “Hype Nation” will arrive in Korea for a press conference within this month. The film is expected to start filming in November.
