Ku Hye-sun to star in her filmActress, artist, singer, screenwriter and director Ku Hye-sun is multi-talented, but for the first time she will combine her best-known gifts by acting in a movie she is creating.
For “Daughter,” a movie about the psychological and physical conflict between a mother and daughter, Ku is not just writing and directing, but also playing the lead role of the abused daughter.
Ku said the film is supposed to show how love can become distorted.
“Because it has been about a year since she directed her previous film, “The Peach Tree,” many fans are waiting to see what type of directorial style she is going to show this time around,” said her agency, YG Entertainment.
The talented star has made three feature films and several shorts since she first tried her hand at directing in 2008.
“Ku has been acting only in TV dramas, and, as this is her first time trying to act in a movie, her fans are most excited,” said the agency.
Ku said she was looking forward to the added difficulty of combining jobs.
“I have refrained from acting in my own movies, but I made this decision for challenge,” she said.
