A poster and a release date for My Black Minidress
Yoon Eun-hye‘s next project, the four-city-girls-experience-their-twenties-together movie My Black Minidress, has gotten a theatrical release date (and a promo poster), and will be out on March 24.
My Black Minidress is a chick flick that promises to be more — the novel upon which the movie is based was noted for being well-written and witty, adding to the buzz of the project. (Although really, Yoon Eun-hye alone stirs up plenty of attention; she’s like a buzz magnet.)
The movie features four twentysomething friends as they go through ups and downs together, which is a pretty plain description but probably pretty accurate. (I’m thinking of the slice-of-life moments of comedy and life struggles, peppered with witty conversations, that characterized the thirtysomething version in The Woman Who Still Wants To Marry.)
The poster gives a hint of the way the black minidress weaves its way through the movie as a common motif: The four dresses are labeled, in clockwise order, Graduation Ceremony, Wedding, Adult Ceremony (which marks when 20-year-olds become legal adults), and Funeral. It’s a clever way to tie together life experiences, sort of like the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, only with a much less silly-sounding name. (Honestly, you can’t have PANTS in the title and not have it be a little bit silly.) And what better way to mark the progress of a fabulous, sophisticated, single city girl’s young life than with the ultimate classic, the Little Black Dress?
The movie also stars Park Han-byul (Oh My Lady, meh), Cha Ye-ryun (Dr. Champ, MEH), and Yoo Inna (Secret Garden, yay!).
