◆ “My 2012…John Woo’s movie and Korean activity.”
After finishing the drama, Worlds Within, it was 3 years until she made her screen comeback with the movie, Today. For many people, they just thought she took a long break. However, it was not disclosed to the media that during that time, she was involved in constant activity.
In the last 3 years, she has been busy traveling between Korea and China. In 2010, she appeared in the movie, Today, and Director Jang Joon Hwan’s movie, Camellia. In addition, from 2009 until now, she has been filming Director Wong Kar Wai’s The Grand Master.
Stars her age tend to put in just as much effort in their work projects as they do with advertisements, pictorials, etc, but in recent years, Song Hye Kyo has deliberately reduced other activities.
“I do not think filming advertisements and shooting pictorials is important. I just thought that as an actor, I should spend more time worrying about what projects I should do and the kind of acting I want to show.”
Song Hye Kyo’s next project is Director John Woo’s movie, Life and Death, where she portrays a protagonist who was born in a wealthy family. The film was originally introduced as 1949 at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival, but production was shut down. So, it took quite a long time until the actual pairing of John Woo-Song Hye Kyo.
“It was a long wait, but I thought to myself that since I had made a promise with the director, this is a movie that I absolutely have to do. During that [wait] time, I did several projects and learned many things, so I want to and wonder if I can show more mature acting. Personally, I have big hopes for this movie.”
In addition, next year we can expect to see Song Hye Kyo frequently in Korea as well. After filming Life and Death, her next move will be a local [Korean] activity. For her fans who have waited a long time, she hinted at greeting them on the television screen.
