Shin Se-kyung takes on assassin role opposite Song Kang-ho
Now that Shin Se-kyung isn’t doing the gumiho drama anymore, she has announced her next project: a movie project with top actor Song Kang-ho (Thirst) called Blue Salt (a working title).
In it, Song Kang-ho plays a retired mafia boss, while Shin Se-kyung is a mysterious woman who is sent to kill him. When she tries to get close to him, he shows a different side to his normally cold mob boss exterior as he develops feelings for her. Meanwhile, she comes into conflict with her original motives when she starts to care for him as well, and role will allow Shin to depart from her innocent image in showing a bolder, more provocative side.
Directing is Lee Hyun-seung, who brought together two (literally) faraway souls in Il Mare with a light and deft touch. Blue Salt will begin filming this summer.
