Director Park Chan Wook’s latest muse
Renowned director Park Chan Wook (Oldboy, Sympathy for Lady Vengeance, I’m A Cyborg, But It’s Okay) has cast his leading lady in his new film Bat (Bak-jui), and calls uljjang-turned-actor Kim Ok Bin (Over the Rainbow, Dasepo Naughty Girls) an “actor of infinite potential.”
He described her as having a “complicated and complex” appearance: “She can seem like a mischievous boy, and also feminine, smiling cheerfully one moment and turning despondent immediately, at the same time a classical yet contemporary actress.”
Also cast in this drama about adultery and blind infatuation is well-respected actor Song Kang Ho, who plays the friend of Kim Ok Bin’s husband; the two engage in a “fatal love.”
The plot sounds straightforward (and dare I say, trite?) enough, but in the hands of Park Chan Wook, it’s sure to result in something quite interesting. It will film through the end of March after casting is completed.

Belle Epoque – “December” from the artist that brought you “May” from the Coffee Prince OST, perhaps better recognized as “that chestnut scene song.” [ zShare download ]
