Invitation marks Yoo Ji-tae’s fourth directorial short
As we know, actor Yoo Ji-tae (of the recent SBS melodrama A Star’s Lover) is also quite serious about directing — he’s produced three separate shorts, which have all made their way round the short-film festival circuit.
Now his fourth, Invitation [초대], has been invited to the Short Shorts Film Festival in Japan, which runs from June 9 through June 14. However, it’ll get a domestic screening first; Invitation will show at Yoo Ji-tae’s upcoming April 5 Seoul fanmeeting.
The film, which Yoo also wrote, features him acting alongside actress Eom Ji-won; coincidentally (?), both Yoo and Eom lent their voices to songs by pop singer Jin Ju‘s latest single (listen to Yoo’s track below).
Yoo’s previous shorts include 2003’s Bicycle Boy, 2005’s How Do the Blind Dream, and the most recent, 2008’s Out of My Intention.
Now, the bigger question is: Now that his drama series has ended with something of a whimper, will he ever take another TV job again, or will he return safely to film roles? (Something tells me he’s not gong to be sticking around TV-land.)
(Heh, how many times can you say “short” in one post? Short, short short. Short. SHORT!)

SONG OF THE DAY
Jinju – “미안해” (I’m Sorry) featuring narration from Yoo Ji-tae. Not really my kinda song, but oh well.
