Kim Ha-neul chooses role in China
Actress Kim Ha-neul will star in the Korea-China joint film “Making Family.”
The rom-com will be Kim’s first Chinese movie since her debut in 1996.
Centering on the love story of an independent Korean woman who has a fantasy about starting a family and a Chinese man for whom family and marriage are the last things he wants in life, the movie hones in on a romance that goes beyond nationality.
In the film, Kim will pair up with Aarif Rahman, a popular Chinese actor.
“I liked the heart-warming story and I also thought my character Mi-yeon could represent Korean women to the Chinese audience,” Kim said in a press release yesterday.
Shooting for the film will begin later this month. It will be located in both Korea and China.
