Son Ye Jin Returns to the Big Screen With Rom Com
Son Ye Jin showed off her coquetry and charms at the press conference for her new film Chilling Romance, which was held on October 24 in Seoul.
With her bangs in a neat braid, Son Ye Jin sported a bright yellow dress, which matched well with her milky white skin, giving off a cute and romantic vibe that bode well for her upcoming romantic comedy, with costar Lee Min Ki.
When asked about working with her junior, Son Ye Jin jokingly lost her cool and wittily responded that three years wasn′t a large age difference.
"I worked with Lee Min Ho [who is younger than me] for the drama, Personal Preference, but this is my first time working with a costar who is younger than me in a film. There are good points in working with sunbae (senior) while there are good points in working with hoobae (junior).”
“While shooting the film, there was something awkward because I was his senior. I was worried about how to communicate with Lee Min Ki. From the start to finish of the filming, he called me ‘Yeo Ri’ [name of the female lead of the movie], but he called me nuna (older sister) immediately after filming finished. Aside from such matters, working with him was refreshing and good. There were many things to learn from him,” said she with a smile.
She revealed her wish to gain the title of ‘queen of romantic comedy.′ “I enjoyed myself while filming a romantic comedy for the first time in a long time. The movie might be distinctively interesting because it features elements of horror movie, rare in romantic comedies,” added Son Ye Jin.
Son Ye Jin plays the role of Yeo Ri who has an ability to see ghosts in the movie, and is left alone after losing her friends due to the ability. But meeting with a horror magician, Jo Goo (Lee Min ki) brings her a new life.
Lee Min Ki said, “I was a big fan of her, so I felt like I was dreaming when I saw her in real life. I have a tendency to feel awkward while I’m with a person whom I like. I felt awkward but I tried to pretend not to feel that way.”
“While acting with her, there were many things I learned from her. I felt many things that I haven’t felt while working with other actresses. She is wise in character and beautiful in looks,” added Lee Min Ki, proving he is another admirer of the actress.
Chilling Romance, a movie about a love between a woman who has never been in romantic relationship due to her ability to see ghosts and a horror magician who falls in love with her, will premiere in December.
