BUSAN: Jeon Do-yeon Signs on to ‘Woman’ for Showbox

Jeon Do-yeon, the Korean actress who was on the Cannes jury in May and won the Palme for actress turn in “Secret Sunshine,” has boarded “A Man and a Woman” for Korean major, Showbox.

Jeon (“The Housemaid,” “Untold Scandal”) is to star in the melodrama opposite Gong Yoo, who is now one of Korea’s most bankable talents thanks to the success of “Silenced” and “The Suspect”.

“A Man and a Woman” is written and directed by Lee Yoon-ki (“This Charming Girl,” “Come Rain, Come Shine”), who previously directed Jeon in “My Dear Enemy.”

Production is by Oh Jung-wan’s Bom Films, the powerhouse boutique which has credits including Kim Jee-woon’s “A Bittersweet Life” and “Untold Scandal” and “My Dear Enemy.”

Set in snowy Finland, “A Man and a Woman” is a melodrama dealing with the forbidden love between two people who are already in relationships.

Jeon is currently filming CJ Collage’s “A Bastard” a story involving a detective who falls for the girlfriend of the murderer he is investigating. The picture also stars “Pirates” star Kim Nam-gil.

She will next be seen in the period epic actioner, “Memoirs of a Sword,” which is to be released this year by Lotte.
