Lee Mi-sook, Kim Min-hee cast in new film

2007/04/12 Source

Acclaimed actress Lee Mi-sook has signed on to her first new project since the 2003 drama "".

Lee first emerged as a star in the 1980s in films such as Bae Chang-ho's box-office hit "Whale Hunting" and Lee Doo-yong's "Mulberry". After retiring from the cinema for close to a decade, she made a highly-praised return in 1998 in Lee Jae-yong's "An Affair". More recently, she won local awards for her performance in the period drama "Untold Scandal" (2003).

In her new film she will be joined by actress Kim Min-hee ("Asako in Ruby Shoes", "Surprise Party") in the second feature by director Kwon Chil-in, who enjoyed a box-office hit with "Singles" in 2003. The film focuses on the work and love lives of three women of various generations.

Lee plays the fortysomething single mom Young-mi, who balances a professional career and an active love life. Kim takes on the role of Ami, a woman in her twenties who must decide between two men played by Kim Heung-soo and Kim Sung-soo. Finally, Young-mi's teenage daughter Gang-ae will be portrayed by debut actress Ahn So-hee.

The film, which shares a Korean title with the classic film "Some Like It Hot" (the official English title has not been announced yet, "Hellcats" finally) will start shooting in mid-April, and is scheduled for a release in the fall. It is being produced and financed by Cinema Service.
