Ko - production in Busan
  • Daisies for JEON Ji-hyun
  • by Yi Ch'ang-ho (KOFIC) /  Mar 10, 2006
  • The film Daisy starring the Korean actors JEON Ji-hyun, JUNG Woo-sung and LEE Sung-jae, is released on March 9. The film is directed by Honk Kong director Andrew Lau and shot in the Netherlands. The story revolves around a love triangle between the three Korean protagonists. JEON plays an artist, and both men fall in love with her. JUNG's profession as a hitman makes him hesitant to expose himself to her. He observes her from a distance and leaves daisies her favorite flower - at JEON's doorstep everyday. JEON mistakes LEE as the mystery man and the two fall in love. JEON became famous with her role in the film My Sassy Girl, while JUNG starred in Musa and LEE is known for his role in Public Enemy. Like many of JEON's other films like Il Mare, the remake rights for Daisy have been bought by Hollywood. Production company Gold Circle, which produced the major indie hit My Big Fat Greek Wedding, showed an early interest in remake rights and signed a contract after watching the film at the European Film Market in Berlin. The American remake of Il Mare is in post production and set for a release in June this year. The title will be The Lake House and the leads are played by Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock. Daisy is expected to experience serious competition at the box office from other strong March releases such as Bewitching Attraction, The Romance and Almost Love. Yi Ch'ang-ho (KOFIC)
