Director Park Chan-wook finalised casting for his highly anticipated vampire film "Thirst". Kim Ok-bin will tackle the female lead role alongside Song Kang-ho. PARK motivated his choice by saying that KIM's talents allows her to take on a variety of roles.

KIM played in the films "Dasepo Naughty Girls" ("Dasepo Girl") and "Arang". Casting of the female protagonist took longer than other roles as the part includes explicit scenes.

"Thirst" is a tale about a priest who turns into a vampire, played by SONG whose latest acting award is this year's FIPRESCI Best Actor Award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival. Like KIM is praised for her versatility, SONG has also portrayed a wide array of characters in popular and artistic films.

PARK's previous film is "I'm a Cyborg, But That's OK" and he won the Grand Prix at the Cannes Film Festival for his renowned "Old Boy". PARK's status already ensured pre-sales of "Thirst" to France and Russia.
