Jeon Ji Hyun Cast in "Snow Flower" with Zhang Ziyi

It had been speculated that a drama would be Jeon Ji Hyun’s next project following her attempt to go global in “Blood: The Last Vampire“,
but on December 6, her management company, Sidus HQ, confirmed her next
role: the movie adaptation of Lisa See’s bestselling novel Snow Flower and the Secret Fan. It will be directed by Joy Luck Club’s Wayne Wang, co-stars (and is produced by) Zhang Ziyi, and is to be produced in English.

Snow Flower and the Secret Fan is set in 19th-century China
and tells the story of two best friends, Lily and Snow Flower. The plot
involves a secret language called Nu Shu, which is used only among
women, and Zhang will take the lead role of Snow Flower. Although the
book doesn’t overtly draw the women’s friendship as lesbian, their
relationship has sensual overtones and includes a nude scene. (This
scene is the reason that Shu Qi reportedly turned down the role.)
