Ku Hye Sun To Return To Acting With Self-Directed Film
Ku Hye Sun will be making her return to acting.
On May 17, it was reported that Ku Hye Sun would be acting, directing, and writing the film “Dark Yellow.” The movie is set to begin filming in June.
“Dark Yellow” is a film about a woman who works in a yellow flower shop and what happens when a strange man takes an interest in her and starts to invade her private space. The synopsis, which was posted on the actress’s Instagram, reveals that it is a horror melodrama that centers on women’s fears around “power,” not in an abstract sense but in a physical sense.
“Dark Yellow” is a crowdfunded project on the platform Wadiz, where the process of making the film will be shared with the public. Supporters will be able to receive merchandise and behind-the-scenes products from the production process, as well as a chance to attend the film screening.
Ku Hye Sun said, “I hope that this project, which is being produced in partnership with Wadiz, will be a chance for us to communicate with fans, supporters, and audiences.”
Her agency, MIMI Entertainment, stated, “We hope that ‘Dark Yellow’ will become a ‘place of meeting’ for the audience. We will focus on sharing the production process and making a space to discuss the results, as well as other promotions for the project.”
The crowdfunding project will start advance funding on May 17, while the campaign will officially take place from May 31 to June 30.
This is Ku Hye Sun’s first acting role in a movie since she participated in director Jung Yoon Chul’s short film “Father’s Sword” in 2017. Ku Hye Sun has been active as a director since 2009, making both short films and feature-length films that have been screened at various film festivals. She has her own production company, Ku Hye Sun Film, which will also produce “Dark Yellow.” Her last project as a director was the short film “Mystery Pink” in 2018, starring Seo Hyun Jin.
