Korean actress Lee Si-young has officially signed with a boxing team.
Lee will attend her official joining ceremony for the Incheon City Hall Boxing Team on January 31, according to officials from her agency, J Wide Company.
“Though Lee is to enter the boxing team, she will concentrate more on her acting career because that is still her main occupation,” the officials said.
As she becomes a member of the boxing team, the public is expecting her to participate in the 2014 Incheon Asian Game. However, officials from J Wide explained that nothing has been set yet because she has to go through preliminaries first.
Lee Si-young, who debuted in 2008, became known after appearing in the smash hit TV series "Boys Over Flowers" (KBS) the following year.
In the meantime, she kicked off her boxing career in 2010 and won the 48-kg class category at the 47th Boxing Competition for Amateurs in the following year. The actress also took the top place at the 41st Seoul Amateur Boxing Contest in July 2012.
