miss A’s Jia recently attended the Beijing press conference for her upcoming film The Third Way of Love (第三种爱情). The film stars Liu Yifei and Song Seungheon, with Jia making her film debut in the role of Liu Yifei’s younger sister. Lee Jaehan, known for directing A Moment to Remember (내 머리 속의 지우개) and Into the Fire (포화 속으로), directs this tragic love story. The film is based on the novel of the same name.

In the film, Liu Yifei plays Zhou Yu, a beautiful and justice-minded attorney. After her younger sister, played by Jia, attempts to commit suicide, Zhou Yu leaves her job and takes her sister’s former job at a large corporation. There she meets Lin Qizheng, played by Song Seungheon, the rich heir to the corporation fighting to solidify his position in the company while his family arranges his engagement with a proper, wealthy girl. Zhou Yu and Lin Qizheng’s initial meeting starts with a fight, which then blossoms into a melodramatic love story. Zhou Yu must deal with her hopeless relationship and her suicidal sister, who is also secretly in love with Lin Qizheng.

Though Jia had a part in the drama One and a Half Summer (一又二分之一的夏天), this will be her first dramatic role, and she follows labelmate Wonder Girls’ Hyerim in making the transition to acting in a major Chinese-Korean film collaboration.
