Lee Na-young steps into transgender role

Actress Lee Na-young, last in Kim Ki-duk’s Dream with Joe Odagiri, has begun filming her newest film, Dad Likes Women [아빠가 여자를 좋아해], in which she plays a (male-to-female) transgender character. In these still frames, we see Lee Na-young playing her post-op character of Ji-hyun, a role said to showcase lots of comic acting from Lee.

Directed by Lee Kwang-jae and produced by Harimao Pictures (Level 7 Civil Servant), Dad Likes Women is described as a “romantic family comedy.” Lee Na-young’s Ji-hyun is a photographer with a great career and love life, and Kim Ji-seok (Hometown of Legends) plays the make-up artist Jun-seo who showers her with affection. Jun-seo has good looks and a great personality, but his romancing skills lack a certain something (they “fall just 2% short”), and thus he has a bit of trouble winning Ji-hyun over completely.

Things hit a snag upon the appearance of Yoo-bin, a young boy (played by child actor Kim Hee-soo of Breathless) who calls Ji-hyun “Dad.” Conflict (and laughs) ensue.

The movie began its first shoots on August 17 and plans to open in December.

There's something really refreshing about Lee Na Young's face. She doesn't seem conventionally beautiful to me, but she looks really.....Korean? Or something. And I love that.

Anyway, the film really does sound interesting.

I thought it would be a serious transgendered film, but I guess Lee Na Young fits more into the romantic-comedy genre which is I know she's good at.
