Han Chae-young and Kiwi Director Become Cinematic Soul Mates

2008/10/15 Source

A press conference on pre-production of the film "Soul Mates" -- the first ever joint Korean-New Zealand movie to be made -- was held at the Paradise Hotel in Busan on Oct. 4.

In the spotlight at the conference was actress Han Chae-young, who has been cast in a leading role. When asked about appearing in a foreign film for the first time, she said, "Of course I feel the pressure. It is my first time appearing in a film in English, but because the director (Scott Reynolds) is so capable and effective at communicating with actors and actresses, I don't think it will be difficult to make this film".

Director Reynolds is already well known to the Korean public as the director of "The Ugly", featured in the 1997 Puchon International Fantastic Film Festival.

Reynolds said, "New Zealanders love Korean movies. For example, 'A Tale of Two Sisters' by Kim Jee-woon was very popular. Han, who combines the beauty of both East and West, is a perfect fit for this movie.

"I don't just mean her physical qualities. She should evolve into a top actress through her role of Jin-hee in 'Soul Mates'."

"Soul Mates" is a horror-thriller about eternal love, and will incorporate elements from Asian shamanism. Filming is expected to begin in January of next year.
