Park Chan-wook directs video for Lee Jung-hyun
Park Chan-wook, the internationally acclaimed director of the movie “Old Boy” and “Thirst,” has wielded a megaphone for the music video of singer Lee Jung-hyun. It is the first time for the veteran director, 49, to work on a music video.
Lee’s agency AVA Entertainment said Friday that Park shot the music clip starring Lee and her friend, actor Jin Goo, for the title song from her upcoming EP with his brother Park Chan-kyong in Namyangju, Gyeonggi, from last Tuesday to Friday.
Previously, Lee, 33, played a lead role in the brothers’ 2011 short film “Night Fishing,” which was filmed entirely on an iPhone 4 camera and earned the brothers the “Golden Bear” award at the Berlin International Film Festival in February 2011.
With her album release on July 22, the songstress will break a three-year hiatus since her seventh album in 2010.
