Korean actress Lee Si Young is not just a pretty face who lights up a scene every time she's on camera.

For she is also a professional boxer who packs a heavy punch or two, according to an allkpop report.

The actress greeted her fans for the first time after her loss last month at the '94th Annual National Sports Festival'.

Lee participated in the women's fly weight boxing match at the festival, which she exited at the quarterfinals stage after dislocating her shoulder and losing the bout against Kim Ha Yool by decision.

She tweeted on Nov 5: "It's been a while since I've greeted you. I'm generally doing well. I'm really thankful to those of you who always encourage me and cheer me on. The weather got really chilly. Be careful of catching cold, and have strength for the remainder of the year."

Fans responded, "It was really tiring, right? You lost the match, but you fought well. I hope your shoulder has gotten better," "The national competition is coming up. I hope you make it into the national team," and more.

In other news, Lee Si Young has been cast in the film 'God's One Movie' alongside Jung Woo Sung, Ahn Sung Ki, and Lee Bum Soo.
