Laneige’s new model Song Hye-kyo is set to star in director John Woo’s (Face/Off, Mission: Impossible II) new flick entitled 1949.
Her co-star? Well, remember her arm candy at the 2008 Asian Film Awards in Hong Kong in March?
Yeah, Taiwanese actor Chang Chen (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) will be starring alongside the Korean beauty in the film.
The film depicts a tragic love story during China’s civil war of 1949.
The announcement was made at a press conference during the recent Cannes Film Festival.
“Among my other films, this will be the one that will underline humanity the most,” said Woo, who is known for his signature slow-mo, wind-in-the-hair sequences.
Song Hye-kyo said: “I was offered the role early this year, and the scenario was very tempting. I am very pleased to be working with director Woo.”
The 26-year-old actress has a busy schedule ahead, doesn’t she? She finished lensing indie flick Fetish in the US recently, signed up for a TV drama with Hyun Bin and she’s set to fully replace Jeon Ji-hyeon as the face of Laneige in July 2008.
