Song Joong-ki romances Han Ye-seul on the big screen
Sungkyunkwan Scandal’s fashionista Song Joong-ki is heading to the big screen for a rom-com movie, in which he romances Han Ye-seul (Will It Snow For Christmas?). Funny that she’s the noona now, when he was the oppa in Christmas — albeit in the past, so they never actually shared scenes. Also — is it weird that they played siblings in that drama?
The movie is titled 태어나긴 했지만, which means Although I Was Born or Despite Being Born. Song Joong-ki is currently working out the final details of the contract, and plays a guy who’s been unemployed for a while who then decides upon a dream to pursue. He matures as he meets Han, a woman who is only described as a persevering type.
Hm. Not much to go on with that description, but since it’s Song Joong-ki in a romantic comedy, I’m in. He’s fantastic at bringing playful, good-humored characters to life (as we saw in Sungkyunkwan and Triple), but he’s just as good being caring and warm-hearted (as we saw in Will It Snow For Christmas?).
It’s been a year since Song’s last movie (the adorable puppy movie Heart Is 2), and three since Han’s last (the flawed but easy-to-watch Miss Gold Digger). The director is Kim Jung-hwan, who seems to specialize in youth-oriented material; he worked on the high school series Sharp as well as the two Jungle Fish projects.
The movie plans to begin filming early next year.
