Jeon Ji-hyun has become the first Korean actor to narrate the official trailer of a Hollywood movie. In flawless English, Jeon voices the trailer of Lisa See's film adaptation of "Snow Flower and the Secret Fan," in which she stars.
"Jeon did the recording at the request of the producers, but we thought it wouldn't be used in the actual trailer and were surprised when it was," a staffer at her agency said.
Jeon has been learning English since her early 20s to help her dreams of a Hollywood career come true, taking English classes in San Francisco and elsewhere in the U.S. during breaks between acting jobs.
She already demonstrated her mastery of the language in her previous film "Blood: The Last Vampire."
"Snow Flower and the Secret Fan" is released in the U.S. and China on July 15.
