Lee Seon-kyun and Jung Yumi in Oki’s Movie

Lee Seon-kyun (Pasta) and Jung Yumi (Que Sera Sera) are two of my favorite drama actors, so naturally my interest was piqued to see that they are starring in a film together, called Oki’s Movie. It comes from director Hong Sang-soo, who won a prize at Cannes earlier this year in the Un Certain Regard category for his film Ha Ha Ha.

Already this new movie has been invited to another film festival, the 67th Venice International Film Festival, into its competitive “Orizzonti” section. According to the festival, it is “the Venice International Film Festival’s most innovative section, a veritable documentary array of contemporary cinema in all its forms of expression.”

A four-fold story develops around the three main characters, intertwined into one overall structure. The film is described as “candid and funny” with an “unconventional format.”

The movie stars Jung Yumi as the titular Oki (more traditionally spelled Ok-hee), an ordinary film student. Her classmate Jin-gu (Lee Seon-kyun) likes her and confesses his feelings for her in one of the stills below (he follows her all the way up the mountainside and gets drunk on makgulli), but her response is a vague “Thank you so liking me so much.”

Their film department professor Moon Sung-geun is the third character who has a good relationship with Oki and treats her nicely, all the while getting the evil eye from Jin-gu. (That is too cute.)

Jin-gu decides to try again at Christmas dinner and waits outside her place, but she doesn’t show up till dawn. Finding that he has spent the night there, she scolds him for waiting all this while.

Oki’s Movie is scheduled to release in Korea on September 16.

Lee Seon-kyun must be one of the most active stars in Korea right now. He seems to move from one starring role to another. I wasn't sure I really liked him when I saw him in White Tower and Coffee Prince -- he had a few mannerisms that bothered me. But I'm getting used to him, and like his public persona a lot. Down to earth, generous with fellow actors, unpretentious. Nice guy.

These two are my favorites too! They are those 'precious' bunch of actors that their project choice is something you could trust and would look forward to.

Ah talking about Lee Seon-gyun reminds me of "Our Slightly Risque Relationship". Is it still ongoing in Korea? I kinda wanna know what happened next after that Ep 1. Just wanna ask if it's gonna be featured in dramabeans?

I wonder if this is a "prequel" to the short film featuring all three of the same actors. I don't remember the title but it was about yumi's character having had a previous relationship with a professor who is now having an affair with her closest friend, and her therefore calling her ex (lee seongkyun's charac) who was also once the prof's student...
