Doll-faced actress Kim Byul (of the uncommonly good sports drama Taereung National Village, and Clazziquai’s “Sweety” music video opposite Lee Junki) has been cast opposite Jang Geun Seok (of the current fusion sageuk Hong Gil Dong — but if you spend any time on this site you already know that, lol) in a new movie, Baby and I. She was also in the teen sex farce Dasepo Naughty Girls, which I actually thought was quite interesting on several levels (although as a film narrative I think it ultimately falls short).
In Baby and Me, the 18-year-old character played by Jang Geun Seok has his life turned upside-down by sudden fatherhood. Kim Byul plays a quirky girl who, coincidentally, shares her name with her character in the film, which initially was a source of surprise for both actor and producers — she’d received the script to audition for the part and was startled at seeing the name. A source from the production team explains: “It isn’t only the name that’s similar, but in every aspect she’s like the film character, as though she’d come straight out of the movie.”
The film is set to start filming at the end of March.
