Hong Sang-soo casts lead characters for next film


Kang Hye-jung

Jung Eun-chae and Kang Hye-jung will play lead characters in director Hong Sang-soo’s 16th movie, industry sources told local media.

Though filming will start in June, no further details of the yet-unnamed movie have been released, as is the director’s custom.

Jung and Kang were said to have gladly accepted Hong’s offer to work together.

Jung, who played a leading role in Hong’s 14th movie “Nobody’s Daughter Haewon,” was invited to the Berlin International Film recently.

This is the first time that Kang will work with Hong in a movie, and her first movie role since “Girlfriend” in 2009.
