Actress Lim Soo-jung will star in Thai movie "Phuket" directed by emerging star director Aditya Assarat and alongside veteran local actor Sorapong Chatree.
The film is the story of the friendship between a young Korean actress and a limousine driver at a hotel in Thailand. Lim plays a famous Korean actress who is constantly in the media spotlight. Sorapong, who has appeared in over 400 movies, plays the driver.
Aditya won awards at the 2007 Pusan International Film Festival with "Wonderful Town" and best film and best director awards at the 2008 Subhanahonga National Film Festival, and is one of the brightest stars on Thailand's movie scene.
Aditya said, "I've always watched Korean actresses with great interest and I've especially wanted to work with Lim. She is very soulful and expressive inside. I've watched all of her movies, and she has natural beauty that mesmerizes people."
"Phuket" finished shooting at the end of August and will premiere at this year's PIFF in October.
