Lee Na-young to discuss art film with fans

This sounds like a cool event series for fans and film buffs (or it could be, if the guest star has interesting things to say about the works featured): Lee Na-young (Maundy Thursday) will watch a film with fans (one she personally recommends, not one she’s in), then discusses it afterward with attendees.

On the 21st, she’ll be at the Cinematheque Pusan as a part of a series focusing on art films and supporting indie productions. Past participants have included directors like Park Chan-wook and movie critics.

Lee Na-young’s event will screen Under the Sand (2000), a Francois Ozon-directed work starring Charlotte Rampling, of whom Lee said, “I was jealous of and enchanted by Rampling’s acting in the film.”

Lee’s management said, “Lee Na-young is participating in this event because, as an actor, she has a deep affection for the Cinematheque and for movies. She finds this a meaningful occasion to be able to meet with film fans whom she has not had the opportunity to see very often.”

Just wishful thinking but it would have been great if she had played the part of Rui's crush or Domyoji's sister. I guess she has better things to do. She's so cool. Love her hair and outfit. Looks very Audrey Hepburn.

I wish she'd do more dramas. :-(

that's fantastic. Under the Sand is one of the best films of its kind, with a role and performance very rare in any film industry.

while it's common for older women to outlive their husbands, how she copes with moving on - or not - esp. in her inner life, isn't exactly hot subject with movie-goers. it is mesmerizing and insightful because we all become survivors sooner or later.

it'll be great to see lee na-young remain in the business long enough, to fight for such age-appropriate roles to play too. (rampling was often good but pure gold after she hit her 50s. she's up there with isabelle huppert in showing brutally honest feelings without hysterics.) as long as the market allows it of course...we can all be encouraged to drink more well aged wine in addition to the usual carbonated soda :D

As much as I like Lee Na Young, she's known as a mediocre interview. Meaning, she may not have all that much to say. :)

"Just wishful thinking but it would have been great if she had played the part of Rui’s crush or Domyoji’s sister. "

I think a younger Lee Na Young would have made a perfect Shizuka. The various dramas depict her as being a kind of Perfect Role Model, but she's actually meant to be a kind of Other. Not so much a personality but a raven-haired Athena or Catherine by which the other characters project their dreams, and by which the F4 seems inclined to be behaved. The encompassing One where Rui can seemingly realize an immaculate, unreal partnership, and yet not really at all. The enigmatic One where Makino feels wholy inadequate and yet completely inspired. Na Young, with her ethereal presence really played up, could convey that.

". (rampling was often good but pure gold after she hit her 50s. she’s up there with isabelle huppert in showing brutally honest feelings without hysterics.)"

Yeah, Charlotte Rampling is kinda in that Helen Mirren branch of complex, fully soulful, and frank sex symbols, which America does not allow to cultivate or age.

Agree. Lee Na Young would've been the perfect Shizuka with her ethereal quality. I <3 her :) Her grace and charm brings to mind an asian Audrey Hepburn. I also like the aloofness and cool intelligence about her - while Na Young is gorgeous, she doesn't come off as overly sentimental or too cute for her own good. *coughs* CJW*coughs*
