#ParkShinHye Explains Why She Chose To Take On A Completely Different Role In 1st Thriller Film
Park Shin Hye spoke about her decision to appear in the movie “Call.”
This upcoming mystery thriller is about a woman named Seo Yeon (played by Park Shin Hye), living in the year 2019, and a woman named Young Sook (played by Jeon Jong Seo), living in the year 1999, and their connection through a phone call.
After debuting in 2003, Park Shin Hye steadily built up her filmography and acting skills. She first gained attention in the 2010 romantic comedy “Cyrano Agency” for her portrayal of a character who had a mature personality despite her a young age. She then moved viewers by advocating for her onscreen father’s innocence in “Miracle in Cell No. 7” and fulfilled her role as a national team coach in “My Annoying Brother.” The actress was also lauded for her performance in “Heart Blackened” where she portrayed a lawyer with a strong sense of justice.
Park Shin Hye, who has been loved for her portrayals in various genres, will undergo a shocking transformation in “Call.” In the film, Park Shin Hye plays a woman who tries to change the past after connecting with someone who lived in the same house 20 years ago.
“This is a genre I haven’t attempted yet, and I chose ‘Call’ because Seo Yeon’s character was charming,” she said. “Seo Yeon has a side to her that’s completely different from the righteous characters I’ve portrayed so far, so it felt really new and fun while acting.”
Director Lee Choong Hyun commented, “She’s an actress with strength because she has lots of experience. She led the film as the center of ‘Call,’ so she’ll be able to prove that she can also pull off a film of this genre.”
“Call” premieres in March.
The film industry is full of energy at the end of February. What stands out the most is the movement of women actors; from Jeon Do-yeon, who has been supported greatly for the last 30 years by the nation, to rising gems Park Shin-hye, Jeon Jong-seo and Shin Hye-sun, they are anticipated to bring abundance to the film industry.
Jeon Do-yeon is back with "Beasts Clawing at Straws"
"Beasts Clawing at Straws" came out on the 19th and the crime film revolves around eight lowlifes chasing after a bag full of cash, starring Korea's most celebrated stars Jeon Do-yeon, Jung Woo-sung, Bae Sung-woo, Youn Yuh-jung and Jung Man-sik, Jin Kyung, Shin Hyun-bin and even Jung Ga-ram. Particularly, with Jeon Do-yeon, who is the first Korean actress to win the Best Actress Award at the 60th Cannes International Film Festival with the 2007 film "Secret Sunshine", expectations are high. Through an interview with Sports Hanguk, she said, "I've always wanted to play the villain and break the stereotypes regarding them. There are so many aspects to humans. Yeon-hee is cruel, but she's not always so hateful".
#ParkShinhye and Jeon Jong-seo's "Call"
Then there's "Call", a fresh challenge by the 20s-30s actresses. "Call" is a mystery thriller about two women who live in the past and the present, connecting through a phone call. Park Shin-hye takes on the role of Seo-yeon, a woman who lives in the present of 2019. Jeon Jong-seo, who debuted in 2018 with Lee Chang-dong's "Burning", takes on the role of Yeong-sook, a woman who lives in the past of 1999. Anticipation rises on these two actresses, who have excellent skills and character analyzing abilities. The movie comes out in March
Shin Hye-sun and Bae Jong-ok's "Innocence"
Actress Shin Hye-sun is making her first screen debut with "Innocence". "Innocence" is about a mother named Hwa-ja (Bae Jong-ok), who doesn't recognize faces, being suspected of poisoning someone to death, as her daughter, Jeong-in (Shin Hye-sun), defends her mother and reveals the dirty truth that the village people and Mayor Choo (Heo Joon-ho) try to hide from them. Shin Hye-sun plays a lawyer that tracks down the truth to clear her mother's name, believing there is a hidden secret within the case. The actress has come to where she is now by strengthening her position from minor to major roles in dramas. Expectation also falls on Bae Jong-ok, who has to play a murder suspect with no memory. "Innocence" comes out on the 5th of March.
"Little Women" on a Box Office roll
