Korean actress Hwang Soo-jeong will be making a comeback to the big screen, taking on her first acting project in two years.
In a phone call with Asia Economic Daily on Thursday, an official at the film's production company Albino Entertainment explained that the actress has been cast in the film [tentatively titled] "The Most Beautiful Picnic In The World", which will go into shoot tomorrow.
