From uljjang to actress to writer-director

Gu Hye Sun joins actors like Yoo Ji Tae in expanding her resume to film directing. Her debut project is the short film Gaze [시선], which starts filming on June 2 in Gangwon-do, and boasts a pretty large scale for this kind of work: approximately 50 crew members and name casting which includes sageuk actor Kim Myung Su, Seo Hyun Jin of the kpop group MILK, and Ha Jiwon’s younger brother Jeon Tae Su. There will also be cameos by other famous actors.

The 35mm film, written by Gu Hye Sun, will be approximately 20 minutes long, and deals with euthanasia and human psychology, which seems like an unexpectedly dark issue to tackle in a debut film — no fluffy vanity project here, it seems.

Gu herself won’t be acting, focusing instead on the directing and even set design work; she’s mentioned her desire to direct since her early debut days and was an art major at school. Her next acting role will instead come in the upcoming fusion sageuk drama Strongest Chil Woo (Choi Kang Chil Woo) which also stars Eric, Lee Eon, and Kim Byul.

This is really like dejavu. She was a writer/director on nn5 and she looks like she'll do a great job.

Oooh, interesting! I want to see that now. Also, looks like the King and I actors are helping her out! Good old Kim Myung Soo. :) And Jeon Tae Soo is helping, too, despite not having been on King and I that long...This makes me happy. Heh.

Yeah, I saw an interview with Gye Hye Sun in Entertainment Relay recently. Intelligent and well spoken. She spoke about studying film direction in school, so you can see that her real heart is in the other side of the camera.

hmm, wasn't she a scriptwriter in the NNS5 sitcom? I thought it was usually Park Jin Woo who played the director part.

anyways, she seems like an intelligent young lady... and her subject for her short film sounds promising.

looks like Goo Hye Sun is out to prove that she's not just a pretty face *cough*Ha Ga In*cough*Kim Tae Hee*cough*

i cant wait to see this, the movie sounds like it has potential

@missmanderley : in a way those two actresses you've mentioned aren't just pretty faces, because they're also pretty well-known for their brains

@joyce
I think what missmanderley meant wasn't really that, but more of acting wise? Which I kinda have to agree.
