Actress Han Chae-young's new film hit local theaters on Thursday in time for Chuseok or Korean Thanksgiving.
The comedy "The Star Next Door" offers a great alternative for moviegoers looking for something lighthearted, rather than a serious thriller or action-packed Hollywood blockbuster.
The film revolves around the relationship between a movie star with a reputation as a troublemaker, her teenage daughter, and the girl's favorite pop idol.
Han said she is not concerned about whether the film is a box office smash. "I enjoyed shooting the film and just hope I can keep working in various fields as long as possible," she said.
The actress is fluent in English as she lived in the U.S. for many years. Asked if she seeks the challenge of appearing in a Hollywood film, she said, "I am satisfied with working in Korea for now. I believe opportunities arise in the course of my work."
Asked to reveal her secret to maintaining her beauty, she said, "I stay positive and try not to worry or get stressed. I think that's it. I don't dwell on problems."
