One of the upcoming K-Drama movies to be on the lookout for is the action-packed Ballerina. At this point, however, not a lot of information has been released about the film. If you're looking forward to knowing who stars in the upcoming Ballerina K-Drama movie, you can check out the list below.

Ballerina is an upcoming thriller film directed by Lee Chung-hyun. This film marks his second K-Drama thriller created for Netflix. The first movie he directed was The Call, which also stars Ballerina lead, Jeon Jong-seo.

Jeon Jong-seo is reuniting with Director Lee for Ballerina. She stars as the lead character, Ok-ju, who is a former bodyguard. She is skilled at swordsmanship, firearms, and self-defense. She also rides motorcycles.

The synopsis of the film says that Ok-ju is friends with a ballerina called, Min-hee, who asks for her help in taking revenge. Without any hesitation, she risks her life for her friend.

As an actress, Jong-seo hasn't been in a lot of films and shows. Despite this, the actress has made a name for herself in the industry.

Her role in the 2020 horror film, The Call, earned her the Best Actress award in the 2021 BaekSang Arts Awards.

After that, she made waves again by starring in the Korean adaptation of the hit Netflix series, Money Heist. Jong-seo took the role of Tokyo in Money Heist: Korea - Joint Economic Area.

Outside of Netflix, the actress starred in Bargain Kdrama and films like Burning and Nothing Serious.

Another actor who will be starring in Ballerina is Kim Ji-hoon, who takes the role of Choi Pro. He is the antagonist in the film, which means we will see him and Jong-seo fighting against each other throughout the movie.

Ballerina marks Ji-hoon and Jong-seo's reunion project. Like Jong-seo, Ji-hoon starred in Money Heist: Korea - Joint Economic Area. He starred as Jong-seo's teammate, Denver.

Other than this, Ji-hoon has worked in numerous films and TV shows in South Korea. His most famous projects include Flower of Evil and Flower Boys Next Door.
