Uhm Jung-hwa Wows Moviegoers With Her Versatility

2005/10/28 | 166 views | Permalink | Source

Actress Uhm Jung-hwa is poised to conquer Korean movie theaters this fall with two very different roles in films that both promise great things at the box-office --"My Lovely Week" and "Princess Aurora".

Directed by Min Gyoo-dong, "My Lovely Week", where she does a wonderful comic turn as a 30-something divorced psychiatrist with a penchant for designer clothes, is a comedy also starring Hwang Jung-min as a macho detective. It has attracted 2 million moviegoers so far after breaking the 1 million mark in just ten days since its Oct. 7 release.

The prospects for "Princess Aurora"-- a kind of "Sympathy for Mother Vengeance" in which Uhm plays a woman who goes on a bloody killing spree after losing her young daughter -- are also bright. Directed by Pang Eun-jin, the film was the most anticipated movie in a survey by movie-information-site Max Movie this week, following rave reviews after the premiere. It also topped advance ticket sales at Max Movie and Ticket Link after being released on Thursday, shunting Hollywood blockbuster "Legend of Zorro" into second place.

CJ Entertainment, the distributor of "Princess Aurora", has high hopes for the movie, deciding to open it at 250 screens across the nation -- a rare phenomenon for an edgy thriller.
