I'm sorry this a bit of late news but I just recently read this. And I thought it was worthwhile to share.
South Korean actress Lee Si-young has successfully qualified for the South Korean national boxing squad after winning a tryout tournament last April 24. Video below.
I just found it unusual that she joined such a dangerous sport. I mean it's common to witness sports stars venturing into showbiz but not the other way around. Anyway, good luck to her.
