    Kim Hye-soo, who won the Best Actress Award at the 27th Blue Dragon Film Award for her role as the femme fatale hostess in "War of Flowers," is poised to show another side of her in her new film "A Good Day to Have an Affair."

    The recently released trailers alone are sensational enough. She plays a married woman who has an affair with a younger man to distract herself from her daily life, all the while swearing to her husband that he is the only one she loves.

    She thinks she knows how to deal with a man and thus betrays no sense of guilt when she lies on the bed with her lover clad only in a black slip. After all, love is shameless.

    The film failed to get a "G" rating at the first deliberation because it contains a bed scene and provocative kissing. That has drawn a lot of attention to the final deliberation scheduled late this month. Producer i Film are bracing themselves for a possible "R" rating rather than promoting it.

    But it seems nothing can stop Kim from working. She will appear in director Chung Yoon-cheol's "Isn't It Good?" as a jobless woman. Her role was supposed to be a cameo, but rumor has been that scenes with her were so enticing the director gave her more.

    With no time for a break after "A Good Day to Have an Affair," she has already started shooting "11th Mother," where she plays a prostitute, a complex part requiring both sexiness and maternal instinct. It will be exciting to see what she does next.
