Actress Goh Ah-ra Cast in Joint Movie by Japan and Mongolia



Actress Goh Ah-ra, who was propelled to stardom after appearing in the KBS teen

drama 'Sharp' has been cast as the unrestrained and independent second wife of

Genghis Khan in 'Blue Wolf' a biographical film on the Mongolian hero which will

be jointly produced by Japan and Mongolia.

The Korean actress won the role after doing an audition, her agent SM

Entertainment said Thursday.

Goh said, "I'm happy to appear in a large-scale film as my first movie role. I will

make a great effort to learn Japanese since I will play the role in Japanese."

To mark the 800th anniversary of the founding of the nation of Mongolia, the film

will be produced by Gadokawa Haruki and directed by Sawai Shinichiro with a

budget of more than US$30 million.

Japanese actor Sorimachi Takashi will play the role of Genghis Khan, and Koyuki

will appear as his first wife Borte. The film will be released in 350 Japanese

theaters in early 2007.
