A movie, 'Yeonriji' starring Choi Ji-woo arouses great interests from overseas

Overseas buyers and 'hallyu' (Korean Wave) fans are greatly attracted to a movie, 'Yeonriji' starring Choi Ji-woo. (Director: Kim Seong-Joong, Production: Taewon Entertainment-Whitelee Cinema).

With a start of filming on August 3, 'Yeonriji' is a kind of love story between a lovely woman Han Hye-won, who wants to happily live for the rest of her life in the face of death, and a young CEO of game company, Lee Min-soo who was awoke to a truthful love of life for the first time by getting to know Han.

The heroin of the film, Choi Ji-woo, who became popular throughout Asia after starring in the local drama "Winter Sonata", will play Han Hye-won.

Choi, whose representative character has been mostly cheerful and adorable, once again challenges herself in a melodramatic role.

Jo Han-sun, playing Lee Min-soo, has featured a sophisticated but rebellious image in his previous film, 'Temptation of Wolves'. In the film, Lee Min-soo always flirts with girls at first but simply leaves whenever he wants.

Without experiencing any truthful love, he, one rainy day, falls in love with Han Hye-won at a glance and builds a serious relationship. Choi Sung-kuk and Seo Young-hee make appearances as good friends of the couple, Choi Ji-woo and Jo Han-sun.

Even the only fact that Choi Ji-woo is a leading actress of the film seems already attractive enough to the media overseas including Japan.

On the occasion of the Festival de Cannes last May, the scenario of the film was introduced, and it caught the eye of buyers from Japan as well as other countries on the ground.

On the next day of the film's crank-in, the presentation of the film production is schedule to be at two in the afternoon of August 4 in Hotel Shilla, Seoul. And according to the production company, Taewon Entertainment, inquiries for press coverage are rushing in from overseas media to cover the event.
