Kim Soo Hyun in talks for his first Chinese film
South Korean actor Kim Soo Hyun’s popularity has soared across Asia, following the success of drama You Who Came From The Stars which is currently airing in Korea. Word has it that the 25-year-old is being highly sought after to take part in a new Chinese film called Summer’s Desire, which will be directed by Hong Kong movie star Carina Lau.
According to media reports, Hong Kong company Filmko Entertainment is currently in talks with both artistes and if the plans come into fruition, it would be Soo Hyun’s first venture into the Chinese film industry and Carina’s maiden directorial work.
Reports also stated that Soo Hyun’s company is keen to explore the Chinese market and that the Moon That Embraces The Sun star is very interested to act in a Chinese film, should the script be suitable.
Carina, who is currently in London, responded to the rumours during a phone interview with Hong Kong reporters yesterday. “I have been thinking of filming a movie in my own perspective,” she said.
The actress also revealed that she has read the novel, which the movie would be based on, and found the storyline to be “pretty interesting”. However, Carina is still considering taking up the offer as she is preoccupied with other assignments.
In addition, Chinese-Canadian actor Shawn Dou and Chinese starlet Zhang Yu Xi will also reportedly be cast in the movie.
