Chun Woo-hee plays a small but impressive role in her latest film "The Wailing." After completing the shoot she said she is happy with the result because she felt the same as when she first read the script.
Chun admits that she does not care who is the director or her co-stars -- the script is all. "I read the script in one sitting and immediately wanted to do it. Now I've seen the film I think some people will love it and some will hate it. Some viewers may feel uncomfortable with the scenes, but I hope they will enjoy the suspense."
The film was produced and distributed by major Hollywood studio Fox International Productions and has been invited to this year's Cannes Film Festival.
"Fox International told me to learn English. I really want to make my international debut to see if I can be recognized for my acting skills rather than drawing attention with my Asian looks. I am planning to stay abroad for one or two months after finishing my current project."
The thriller revolves around villagers who experience a string of mysterious murders when a stranger arrives in the village, and Chun played the only witness to a case.
It hit local theaters on Thursday.
