Ko - production in Busan
  • Secrets, Objects sells to Hong Kong
  • Dec 15, 2011

  • Korean production company Film Front has announced that <Secrets, Objects>, directed by LEE Young-mi, has sold to Sundream Motion Pictures in Hong Kong. The romance stars JANG Seo-hee as a 40-year-old sociology professor preparing a dissertation on extramarital affairs and JEONG Seok-won, a 21-year-old student who enrolls in her seminar.
    The film screened at the Moscow International Film Festival, Jeonju International Film Festival, and the Montreal World Film Festival this year. It was released theatrically in South Korea Nov. 17 by Yejirim Entertainment.
    Film Front stated that <Secrets, Objects> attracted attention from buyers in Busan at the Asian Film Market this year. Lead actress Jang Seo-hee’s growing popularity as a Korean Wave star in Chinese-speaking territories was an added advantage. Jang has featured in films such as <Ghost House> and <My Captain, Mr. Underground> but also has a base in television dramas such as Ob. & Gyn.
    <Secrets, Objects> is Lee’s debut feature film. Her previous filmography includes the short films <Oil & Water> (1997) and <Cabby> (2001) that screened at international festivals in Brazil, Berlin, San Francisco. A graduate of the National Film and Television School in the United Kingdom, Lee also has experience working on films such as <Notting Hill> (1999).
