A representative from Lee Min Jung’s agency, MSteam Entertainment, confirmed the actress is in talks for a role in director Oh Sang Ho’s film “Neighborhood Guy” (tentative title). The representative said Lee Min Jung is positively looking over the role offer.
If she accepts the role, she will be playing a North Korean defector named Seon Yeong. “Neighborhood Guy” will be a love story centered around Seon Yeong. The film would be Lee Min Jung’s first since “Wonderful Radio,” which was released in 2012.
After casting is complete, filming for the movie will begin in spring 2017.
