UHM Jeong-hwa Eyes Big Screen Comeback as OK MADAM

Action-Comedy Will Mark Debut of SHIN Hyun-sung
UHM Jeong-hwa looks set to return to the big screen after a four-year absence through the upcoming project OK Madam (literal translation). The star’s last film outing was KANG Hyo-jin’s 2015 family comedy Wonderful Nightmare. UHM’s representatives have stated that she is positively considering appearing in the project.
OK Madam is described as an action-comedy that would feature UHM as a strong-headed middle-aged woman who sells traditional donuts in a market. Despite her harsh outward appearance, she is actually a deeply caring woman who is devoted to her family.
The singer-turned-actress has played a variety of roles on screen, easily switching between comic and dramatic registers. Her notable credits include the disaster blockbuster Haeundae (2009), the baroque horror Bestseller (2010), the political comedy-drama Dancing Queen (2012) and the kidnap thriller Montage (2013).
The project will mark the directing debut of SHIN Hyun-sung, who previously wrote the action short Pandora (2011) and was part of the production team of the 3D horror omnibus MAD SAD BAD (2014).
