Actress Song Hye-kyo has traded her innocent girlish image for that of a femme fatale in her first foreign movie, "Make Yourself at Home."
Behind-the-scenes photographs from the movie, showing her preparing for a scene with director Sohn Soo-pum and other crew and castmates, were released ahead of its release here on Thursday.
The U.S.-based director's first feature film is a psychological thriller that portrays the inner conflicts and desires of a girl who was born to a shaman mother and tries to flee her fate by becoming an immigrant bride in the U.S. The role of the troubled bride is a dramatic departure from the sweet, young characters that Song is better known for.
"Make Yourself at Home" has garnered favorable reviews in foreign festivals such as the Oldenburg International Film Festival in Germany and the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival.
