South Korean actress Son Ye-jin will star in “Bad Guy Must Die (working title),” a Chinese film directed by Peng Xiaogang, a 56-year-old renowned director, according to Son’s agency.
In her first Chinese movie, she will co-star with Jin Baek Rim, an up-and-coming Taiwanese actor who won the Best Actor award at Dauville Film Festival in 2012.
“We recognize that Son has a solid track record with many box office hits in Korea. We are deeply grateful to her for choosing us for her first movie in China,” said the Chinese filmmaker.
She will start shooting this March after she completes “House with Happiness,” a South Korean thriller film.
