LEE Joon-ki Wraps Japan/Korea Co-production

2007/01/16 | Permalink | Source

Rising Korean-wave star Lee Joon-gi has completed shooting a Korean-Japanese joint production, "Virgin Snow", in which he plays the male lead opposite one of Japan's rising stars, actress MIYAZAKI Aoi (Nana). LEE became an overnight sensation at home after starring as the gender-bending Konggil in "The King and the Clown".

In "Virgin Snow", LEE plays Min, a Korean university student who is transferred to Japan when his father, a professor, gets posted to Kyoto in an exchange position at a university. There, Min meets Nanae (MIYAZAKI), a high school girl, and promptly falls in love with her. Initially indifferent to him, Nanae soon warms up, and their relationship grows, surmounting the linguistic and cultural divide, until one day Nanae mysteriously disappears.

The film is directed by Han Sang-hee, known best for producing music videos with famous performers such as Rain and Ivy. The film is jointly produced by Korea's CJ Entertainment, and Japan's Kadokawa Herald Pictures and GuardTec.

"Virgin Snow" is scheduled for a release this spring in both Japan and Korea.
