This is also the first time a Korean girl group idol has starred in a Thai movie, so hopefully this will heighten the Hallyu hype, which would help in Thailand’s economy as well.”

I'm guessing the movie isn't mainstream, maybe indie. It's becoming a trend nowadays, asian countries importing actors from other asian countries. Ma isn't an A-list actor yet but I hope this will be his breakthrough. Eunjung is older, he is same age as Jiyeon. I hope the story is good so it will be a huge hit.
