Award winning director Park Chan Wook who brought us the Vengeance trilogy (which includes Old Boy) and I’m a Cyborg but that’s OK will make his debut as a producer in the upcoming movie Miss Hongdangmu.
In the movie, actress Gong Hyo Jin (Sangdoo, let’s go to school!) plays Yang Mi-suk (aka Miss Hongdangmu), a 29 year old Korean woman who teaches Russion in school. She stumbles into one frustrating situation after another due to her shortcoming of blushing easily.
“Hongdangmu” means “red radish” or “carrot” in Korean.

The movie is directed by Lee Kyung-mi, winner of the 2004 short films award. Miss Hongdangmu will be her first feature-length film. This movie will be released on October 16, 2008.
