Seo Woo takes on a Lolita role in Paju
I guess the sexy schoolgirl is never going out of style, but the plot of the upcoming melodrama/romance film Paju [파주] seems like it may have an interesting take.
Seo Woo (who won some awards for best new actress at the end of last year for her role in Crush and Blush) takes the lead as a “provocative and outrageous” student who falls in love with her older sister’s boyfriend, played by Lee Seon-kyun (Coffee Prince, Triple). This is complicated by the fact that she also suspects the boyfriend of foul play, as he’s the only one who knows the secret behind her sister’s death.
The 21-year-old Seo Woo plays ages spanning from middle through high school, and portrays a mix of innocent and provocative appeal. Her character first meets Lee Seon-kyun’s when he is brought in as her tutor, and he begins dating her sister. After her sister dies, she becomes closer to him and eventually falls in love with him.
Paju is directed by Park Chan-ok of Warm Swamp (2004) and Jealousy Is My Middle Name (2002). The film is currently in post-production and will release in the fall.
(Meanwhile, it sure seems like Lee Seon-kyun is working up a storm, doesn’t it? Every few months he’s got a new drama or film coming out — his resumé lists four films and two dramas in the past year alone. Not that I’m complaining.)
