  • BAE Doo-na Returns Home for THE ROMANTIC
  • by June Kim /  Feb 17, 2015
  • Wachowski Siblings’ Muse Makes Korean Film Comeback
     
    According to multiple news outlets, global actress BAE Doon-na is currently in the final stages of negotiations for new Korean feature The Romantic (working title). The film is an omnibus romance that will tell the stories of multiple couples. Other than BAE, RYU Hyun-kyung (Manshin: Ten Thousand Spirits, 2013), OH Dal-su (Ode to My Father) and OH Jeong-se (How to Use Guys with Secret Tips, 2013) are also considering offers.
     
    This film will be BAE’s return to the domestic arena, a year after the Cannes-selected and festival favorite A Girl at My Door. BAE has a strong filmography both domestically and internationally, having worked with renowned Korean filmmakers like PARK Chan-wook and BONG Joon-ho and dipped her feet into Japanese films through Linda Linda Linda (2005) and Air Doll (2009).
     
    After starring in the Wachowski siblings’ Cloud Atlas (2012), BAE was called back to participate in their upcoming Netflix series Sense8. The series, which was partially shot in Korea with the assistance of the Korean Film Council’s Location Incentive Program, is scheduled to be release this year. Another feature from the Wachowskis starring BAE is Jupiter Ascending, which was released earlier this month.
     
    The Romantic is expected to start shooting in May once casting is complete.
