Actress Han Chae-young is poised to expand her fame after deciding to make her debut in China with the film "Big Deal" directed by top female director Ma Liwen.   

The film will also star Taiwan's Blue Lan, who appeared in the popular TV soap "Meteor Garden," and Hong Kong's Chapman To, who starred in the film "Infernal Affairs."

"Han has been a leading model for commercials in China due to the popularity of the TV soap 'Sassy Girl, Chun-hyang,'" HS Media chief and Han's casting director Jason Jang said. Her popularity in Chinese-speaking world has soared and she is being sought after by producers and directors there.

"Big Deal" is to be released in over 1,100 cinemas across China as well as elsewhere in Asia and in the U.S.
