Model-singer-actress Harisu was recently in Malaysia for filming Bjarne Wong’s upcoming 3D horror movie “The Hunter.”
This is her second time to work with the Malaysian director as she was previously in 2006’s “Possession” with Malaysia’s Amber Chia.
Born biologically male, Harisu identified as female from early childhood and underwent sex reassignment surgery in the 90s. She is noted for being South Korea’s first transgendered entertainer and in 2002 became only the second person in Korea to legally change their gender. Her stage name is reportedly a play on the English phrase “hot issue”.
Besides Harisu, “The Hunter 3D” stars Carmen Soo, Sharifah Amani, Cindy Chen, Smythe Wong, Koe Yeet, Lou Qi, Tavani Hu and Wayne Thong.
The reportedly USD 2 million China-Malaysia joint production is aim for distribution in countries such as Malaysia, Hong Kong, Singapore, Indonesia, India and the Philippines. “The Hunter 3D” will be the first 3D South East Asian movie.
