[News] Ku HyeSun-Shim HyeJin, as Director-Actress or as mother and daughter–fantasy couple.
(TVReport=Reporter Hwang JiYoung) A photo shoot of Ku HyeSun who returns as a director and Shim HyeJin who is the main star is completed. In the movie, the two people acted as mother and daughter.
On Sept. 19th, YG announced that actress Ku HyeSun returns as a director with her movie, “Daughter”, produced by GHSFilm and Yes Production. YG pointed out the article enclosed in the October issue of InStyle magazine under the title of, “In Style’s BIFF Special Issue”.
The movie, “Daughter”, is Director Ku’s third movie and her first debut as a movie star. Shim HyeJin gave her shot of support here. It is a psychological movie with a social message shown through conflicts between Sanyi, a junior high school student, and her mother who tries to restrict her through coercive punishment and control.
The shown photoshoot displays the subtle tension between Shim HyeJin and Ku HyeSun. In an another picture, we see Ku HyeSun sitting next to a bunch of films on a table along with the graceful and glamorous Shim HyeJin who will portray a somewhat misguide/twisted mother.
Ku HyeSun reveals her reason for casting Shim HyeJin as the mother: “If you see this movie, you would almost think it Shim HyeJin’s one-person show due to her acting which is full of her amazing energy. She is an actress who can handle all genres.”
Shim HyeJin talks about why she decided to act in the movie: “I wanted to give support to a hoobae (junior) who is making a low-budget film. When you feel enough connection to a movie, you get to see the director’s passion and potential regardless of the guarantees or the treatment. Director Ku is a friend who is so smart and overflowing with passion.” She also added: “I really empathize with the scenario. The mother in the movie simply does not want her daughter living the same life that she had. Her ways may be bit more intense in certain areas, but I am sure that we can relate.”
The movie, “Daughter”, has been formally invited to the 19th BIFF in the “Korean Movies Today Panorama” section.
