Han Ji-min considers film Miss Baek as comeback project
After finishing the rounds of promotion for her latest movie Age of Shadows and briefly making a cameo appearance in Jealousy Incarnate, Han Ji-min is deliberating on Miss Baek as her next project. If she confirms, Han Ji-min will portray a young woman who strikes up a friendship with a broken child who has suffered from domestic violence.
Most of Han Ji-min’s previous movies, like Age of Shadows and Fatal Encounter, have large casts and are predominantly male-centric. In contrast, a starring role in an emotional sentimental film like Miss Baek would require her to showcase the full range of her acting ability, as she would have the bulk of the screen time. She has ventured into rom-com, thriller, and historical genres before, but it will be the first time she tackles a sensitive issue like child abuse.
Director Lee Ji-won will be heading the Miss Baek team. He is a rising star in the film world who is best known for Blue Desert, which was awarded the Busan International Short Film Festival Award in 2011, and Summer Night, which was awarded the Grand Prize in the Short Film category at the 2016 Jeonju International Film Festival. The real test will be getting his success in short indie films to translate into mainstream popularity.
Currently, the cast is being finalized, and the child auditions are in their final stages. Filming will begin soon as casting finishes, and the movie Miss Baek is set to be released next year.
