The 24th was press preview day for the cast of upcoming movie Sa-kwa [사과, which could mean apple or apology], and while this doesn’t necessarily look like my cup of tea, I do like the actors involved: Moon Sori (Legend), Lee Seon-kyun (White Tower), and Kim Tae-woo (Woman on the Beach).
In the film, directed by Kang Yi-kwan (A Smile), Moon Sori’s character is dumped by Lee Seon-kyun after seven years. She then marries Kim Tae-woo’s character, who’d long had feelings for her, but is confronted with doubt and worry when her first love returns.
The movie finally hits theaters after two years; since starting on the film in December 2006, Moon Sori has since married (to movie director Jang Joon-hwan). She joked, “Before I got married, I’d played mothers in a lot of roles, but now that I’m married, here comes my movie where I play a single woman.”
She also shared an anecdote about watching the film at the Pusan Film Festival with her then-fiancé, who’d turned to her afterward and said, “Marriage is starting to seem scary. It seems a lot more difficult and frightening than I’d thought.” (At least he wasn’t scared off completely.)
The movie releases October 16.
