Love Phobia, Love in Two Kinds of World

2006/04/10 Source

'Love Phobia'only exists in fictional films for the real life couple Cho Seung-woo and Kang Hye-jung, the two stars of the upcoming romantic drama Love Phobia ("Tomabaem"). The story is about two people in love with each other, but Kang's character stays away from him because of the secrets she carries.

The film is directed by first time director Kang Ji-eun, who was an assistant director on Silmido (2003) and Public Enemy (2002).

Jo and Kang not only share good fortunes in love, but also in both their acting careers. Jo enjoyed successwith Marathon (2005) and collaborated with director IM Kwon-taek in "Low Life" (2004) and Chunhyang (2000). Kang has been praised for her acting in Old Boy (2003) and Welcome to Dongmakgol (2005).

The couple say that they enjoyed working together and they were able to learn from each other's skills and acting experience. Director Kang reportedly had some concerns about casting a real life couple, worrying that the public's focus on the real life couple could potentially overshadow the film. Additionally, if the couple were to break up, it could have a negative influence on the film. Nonetheless, director Kang said that working with Jo and Kang turned out to be a positive experience and they were a great help to him. The film is scheduled to be released in Korea on April 27.
