Min Hyo-rin cast as lead in Romantic Movement

Min Hyo-rin is taking the lead in a new project, a short film adapted from the novel Romantic Movement by Swiss writer Alain de Botton. This is an omnibus project taking the first five chapters of the original novel and dividing them among four directors, each of whom is in charge of his own segment. Those include directors Kang Chul-woo (Romantic Island) and Park Hyun-jin (Six Years in Love).

The short will be shot in various locations around Seoul and be distributed online beginning on March 30. In addition, songwriter and musician Tearliner will be handling the music direction. Also appearing are Yeo Wook-hwan (Ja Myung Go), Sohn Byung-wook (Private Eye), hip-hop singer Defconn, and Jung Jun-il of rock band Mate.

Sounds like an interesting project — web content can be a little iffy if not marketed well — and Min Hyo-rin is one example of a singer-turned-actor who actually impressed in her acting debut. Although I thought Triple ultimately fell flat, Min was winning and exuberant, and I was very happy to have my initial reservations about her casting proven wrong. I’ll be keeping an eye out for her future projects. Plus, it’s Tearliner! He has a talent for creating wonderful moods with his thoughtful musical choices.

Liked her in Triple even though I didn't like the drama. I actually want to see her in dramas. She and Im Juhwan looked so good together at the MBC drama award. Want to see more of her.

aww, MHR! loved her from Triple. Somehow she managed the naive teen very well (not a hard role, but so many have failed it). I'm more of a drama than a movie watcher, but I'll be looking out for this one.
