Jiyoung, a former member of Korean girl group Kara, will make her movie debut in Eiichiro Hasumi’s “Ansatsu Kyoshitsu” (“Assassination Classroom”), which opens in local theaters March 21.

Based on Yusei Matsui’s popular manga series of the same name, the film is a bizarre, humorous story about a skillful octopus-like teacher who trains students to kill him in order to save the world. Jiyoung (real name Kang Ji-young) plays Irina “Bitch-sensei” Jelavic — a Russian assassin working undercover as an English teacher.
