Remember the time when Jun Ji Hyun (전지현) and Cha Tae Hyun (차태현) gripped our hearts so much that there just wasn’t enough tissue to go around?
Well, the iconic Korean rom-com film “My Sassy Girl” (엽기적인 그녀) is back with a sequel titled, “My New Sassy Girl”, which will star Cha Tae Hyun and f(x)’s Victoria Song (宋茜)!
The upcoming sequel movie recounts the story of Gyun Woo (played by Cha Tae Hyun), who is experiencing difficulty forgetting “The Girl” (who decided to become a nun), and gets reunited with his (unnamed) elementary school sweetheart (played by Victoria Song) who recently returned to Korea from China. The film will explore the romance and problems after the two get married.
The movie will also star Japanese actress Mina Fujii as Yuko, veteran actress Song Ok Sook as Gyun Woo’s mother, and Choi Jin Ho as Kim Jong Moo.
Directed by Jo Geun Sik (조근식, from “Once In A Summer” and “Conduct Zero”), “My New Sassy Girl” is a collaboration between China and South Korea’s film industry that is budgeted at CN¥32 million (approximately RM20 million).
This film marks Victoria’s debut in the South Korean film industry. The Chinese actress opened up to Sina Entertainment about how she feels about taking up one of the most iconic roles in South Korean film history.
“Jun Ji Hyun’s effect on the movie is a big pressure for me. However, as this is a new step for me, I believe I have the strength to overcome the pressure,” said the 29-year-old singer.
