Dad Likes Women posters reveal two sides to Lee Na-young
When I first heard of Lee Na-young‘s newest film, Dad Likes Women [아빠가 여자를 좋아해], where she plays a transgender character, I thought it would be a serious, thoughtful film. I wasn’t the only one who thought so, since there were a lot of comparisons to Transamerica in the previous comments. That’s not to say that the film won’t be thoughtful, but it seems like it will have a decidedly comic, lighthearted tone as it explores the developments that arise between a father who is sought out by the son he didn’t know about — and by the time they meet, the father is now a woman.
Lee Na-young plays both parts, as we can see in the new teaser posters. In the one below, Lee is dressed as the man, and the tagline reads, “Shhh about my… handsome(?) past.” While her post-op image shows Lee looking as we are used to seeing her, I think her male garb makes her look a little jokey (the obviously fake mustache probably doesn’t help). But it sounds like she’s a woman for most of the time, so perhaps it won’t be a big stumbling block. In any case, I’m all for checking this movie out.
Dad Likes Women opens in January 2010.
