2007/10/02 | 238 views | Permalink | Source

Top Korean actress Jeon Do-yeon has chosen her next project amidst a flood of offers following her win earlier this year at the Cannes film festival. Acclaimed at home for taking on many diverse and challenging roles, she recently catapulted into the international spotlight with her Cannes Best Actress win for her powerful performance as a traumatized mother in Lee Chang-dong's "Secret Sunshine".

JEON will take the lead role in Meotjin Haroo ("A Fine Day" - "My Dear Enemy"), the fourth feature from talented director Lee Yoon-ki. LEE made his impressive debut at the Pusan International Film Festival in 2004, winning the New Currents award for "This Charming Girl". He followed with "Love Talks" (2005), filmed in LA, and "Ad-Lib Night" (2006) which screened at the Berlinale this year.

"My Dear Enemy" will be a drama concerning a thirty-something woman, both jobless and single, who spends a strange day with her ex-boyfriend. JEON will star as the female lead while no actor has yet been announced for the male role. bom Film Productions is the producer, along with help from Sponge. b.o.m. also produced JEON's previous films "Untold Scandal" (2003) and "You are my Sunshine" (2005). Shooting is to begin in November 2007.
