Hallyu queen BoA will be making her Hollywood debut through the film, “COBU 3D“!

BoA will be starring alongside Derek Hough, the champion of America’s hit reality show, ”Dancing with the Stars“. The two stars play the role of dancers who grew up in vastly different environments, and so they knock heads when they first meet at an underground New York club. Although they start off as fierce rivals, they eventually fall into a ‘Romeo and Juliet’ type of love.

Duane Adler (who’s known for his work with “Save the Last Dance” and “Step Up“) will be directing the film, and it’s being co-produced by Robert Cort, CJ Entertainment, and SM Entertainment.

“COBU 3D” aims to escape from the standard dance movies that focus on battles instead of delivering a solid storyline. The film will shed light on a beautiful love story, as well as spotlighting a variety of dance styles including tap, hip hop, and swing.

The movie is scheduled for an early 2012 release, and CJ Entertainment will be distributing it in Korea, China, and Japan. Lionsgate International will be the international sales agent, and they’re planning to begin pre-sales at the Berlin International Film Festival this February.

Meanwhile, BoA will begin official preparations for her role this coming Spring!

Darn, should have seen the early signs, first Derek Hough shows up the SMtown L.A., then she follows him on twitter although briefly and now he's BoA's Romeo...I think I set my self up for disappointment. In my mind, I was telling myself he's only going to be a choreographer, hoping for someone more fitting haha but I think we all knew. I still don't think they would look right as a couple but here's hoping to seeing them next to eachother side by side so I could judge more clearly. Hopefully, they'll make an amazing dancing couple lol, pretty sure they're gonna kill it when it comes to dancing. BoA fighting!!! And still wondering who her brother will be...?

I am pretty sure this movie will be released in theatres not straight to DVD.

SM Entertainment already made a statement last year when rumours for this movie surfaced that this movie is a big factor on whether BoA will make it or break it in America.

So SM, BoA and staff are serious, this will get a theatre release in America.

Unless of course SM just played us all along and BoA's American career is a just one huge joke.

Really?Seems like we are at the same age.

So bad that we fans have to wait until next year but the article sounds hopefully.I can't stop imagining about the film.Let wait for BoA's splendid acting skill.<3

Besides,I don't like that actor.I don't think he and BoA will look good together.
