YOON JIN-SEO - An Actress on the Edge:
FROM OLDBOY TO BEASTIE BOYS
Nearly a decade ago, Yoon Jin-Seo exploded onto the world of cinema with her star-making role in Park Chan-wook’s blockbuster OLDBOY. The stunning 29-year-old young actress has been a staple of the Korean film industry ever since and from the supernatural horrors of Ki-hwan Oh’s Voices to the laugh-packed Good Day for an Affair, this petite powerhouse has the world’s attention and shows no signs of slowing down. After ten short years, her résumé now tallies more than a dozen of Korea’s biggest features, so it’s no surprise that the Korean Cultural Service – in association with The New York Asian Film Festival – is immensely proud to present two of this talented, boundary-pushing young actress’ most powerful new films… with Ms. Jin-Seo herself in attendance!
JULY 10 – SECRET LOVE (2010)
Only two months after their storybook marriage, beautiful young Yeon-Yi (Yoon Jin-Seo) is suffering through the repercussions of a tragic car accident that’s placed her handsome new husband Jin-woo (Oldboy’s Yoo Ji-Tae) into a deep coma. Utterly destroyed, she finds herself waiting at the airport for her husband’s brother Jin-Ho, but, never having previously met, Yeon-Yi shocked to discover that he and Jin-woo are identical twins. Initially cold toward each other, the two soon fall head-over-heels in forbidden love… and things become even more problematic when Jin-woo suddenly awakens from his coma.
Actress Yoon Jin-Seo will introduce the film, and will participate in a Q&A session following the feature. Tribeca Cinemas:
